Audioslave melancholy

There’s a side of me that loves listening to Yo-Yo Ma and Joshua Bell, and then there’s the side of me that just digs “Like a Stone” by Audioslave. Whenever I hear it on the local alternative station, I react to it the in the same visceral way I do whenever Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” comes on. The song smolders with melancholy and a brooding anguish.

It’s like you don’t even have to know exactly what Chris Cornell’s singing, either. You can just kinda unfocus and grind along, then rock out in your head to the guitar solos.
