    Definitely, although that wasn't the original question but I agree with this statement. Rage Against the Machine rules.

    Soundgarden. Sceaming Life EP Ultramega OK and Loud Love were amazing, almost trippy records. They lost that along the way, but Audioslave was never more than the sum of its parts. Soundgarden had a lot of soul early on.

    seems like Soundgarden wins this fight lol, sucks for me to hear this cause I'm a big fan of Morello and Audioslaves riff driven rock but Soundgarden is awesome too so I cannot argue with anyone on it lol

    For me, they both have their place, so i can't say that one is better. In either case Chris Cornell has an amazing voice. I got to see him live in a club a couple years back, and his band played stuff from both bands. It was like watching the greatest cover band ever. Ha ha.

    Hell, just one listen to Badmotorfinger and the answer should be obvious...

    RATM + Soundgarden = a different kind of Nickelback


    Plus, sure Morello is incredibly inventive but he's got way too much 80's hair-metal in his playing without the dissonance of Kim Thayil (which is really the secret weapon to Soundgarden).

    I dunno if I hear hair metal...

    Hearing Cornell's bland output since Soundgarden makes you realize how important Thayil was to their sound...

    The first Audioslave album is high in the running on my top albums of all time. It's actually the album that got me to start playing guitar (I listened to the verses in 'Last Remaining Light' and wanted to see if I could pull it off... I couldn't). The second album had a few cool tracks (#1 Zero is probably my favorite), but missed the mark for me as a whole... same with the 3rd.

    That being said, Soundgarden is the better band to me. It's one of the earliest bands I can remember really liking as a kid. I listen to more of SG's albums more than I've ever listened to AS (and the new-ish 'Live on I-5' album gets a listen almost weekly). The power Cornell had in his voice then was astounding, and Kim Thayil is a beast (not that Morello isn't, but you know what I mean).
