A band formed from the ashes of Rage against the machine and Soundgarden. Chris Cornell from soundgarden and the other three from Rage against the machine. This is similar to velvet revolver, where the band consists of Guns N roses (Minus Axl), a lead singer (scott weiland), and an extra guitarist (Dave Kushner). The combination of both Chris Cornell's unique voice along with the flawless guitar and drums creates an unmatched sound that is just about as unique as.... a 9 legged antelope.
I went to an Audioslave concert last night after I picked up their self titled CD - "Audioslave" Their new one will be out late 2004 or early 2005!

The Pheonix risen from the broken bands Soundgarden and Rage Against the machine. Chris Cornell leads de la Rocha's old buddies Tom Morello, Timmy Commerfield, and Brad Wilk as their vocalist in this Post-Grunge/Alt-Rock band. Their self-titled album audioslave contains such classics as Like a Stone, Chochise, Shadow of the Sun (used on the Collateral soundtrack, and I am the highway.
Drown, if you want
And I'll see you at the bottom
Where you crawl
On my skin
And put the blame on me
So you don't feel a thing

A decent band, now defunct. Formed by ex-members of Rage Against the Machine and Soundgarden.

Not as good as Rage or Soundgarden, but then few bands are.
Audioslave have now broken up, but Rage have reformed so it's okay.

rage and soundgarden individually created the orgasm of sound, each style from their own creativity, but now in a united front, AUDIOSLAVE, they create the cornerstone of rock perfection. The unique combination works perfectly and is the climax of music history, in my wee opinion anyway!
Audioslave can make you come hard and fast, or slow and errotically.PERFECTION

Driving recklessly, extremely fast and with no regards for any traffic laws what so ever. More points are awarded for more dangerous and technical maneuvers: passing on the shoulder, speed in excess of 120mph, and cutting across 3 or more lanes of traffic to make a gap.

Other forms: audio slavin, audio slaved, audio slavage
In reference to the Audio Slave music video "Show me how to live"
"Dude it only took me 15 minutes to get here."
"Weren't you like 30 minutes away?"
"Ya well I decided to Audio Slave it!"

or

"Dude I was audio slaving on my way here and passed like 4 cars on the shoulder doing 140mph!"

A band that consists of the remnants of Rage Against the Machine and Soundgarden.

FACT: Rage Against the Machine is one of the best bands ever. Zach de la Rocha is one of the greatest musicians ever to walk on the Earth. Tom Morello is one of the greatest guitarists ever.

FACT:Chris Cornell of Soundgarden writes lyrics like a kindergardener.

FACT: Listening to engenius music as a backdrop of Chris Cornell's lyrics makes for an akward expierience.

*during an Audioslave concert*

Brad Wilk is hammering the drums.

Tim Commerford is rocking on the bass.

Tom Morello is wailing on the Guitar.

Chris Cornell sings, "I've been wanderin sideways, I stared straight into the sun!"

Somewhere, Zach de la Rocha wakes up in a cold sweat.

A band who can't decide whether they're the new Soundgarden or not. Nine times out of ten, you probably couldn't tell an Audioslave track apart from a Soundgarden track. I still like them though.
They're confused as hell, but they still make good music. Cornell + Morello = Win.
