The Top Ten

1
Like a Stone
Amazing song! Rhythm is something else, you'll never find another song like this
Beautiful words, his voice is full of pain and longing, just sincere and strong, brings me on my knees while listening.
Great song although it gets a little depressing but he is the vocalist of our generation that's for sure

2Be Yourself
'Be Yourself' is Audioslave's best song!
'Like a Stone' does have some good bits, but the good bits in 'Be Yourself' far out way those of Like a stone.
When I ask people do they know Audioslave, the always say "Be Yourself is an Awesome song"
Much better than "Like a Stone"! Chris Cornell have an excellent voice!
Best of Audioslave, without a shot of a doubt! Motivating, Inspiring, Just gets your adrenaline going from any mood. Brilliant vocals, lyrics, beat, nothing bad to say about it. #1 Be yourself For the win. It just gets you going, makes us be ourselves

3I Am the Highway
very calm and hypnotizing song
Such an amazing song, it gives you a tingling feeling every time you here it. The lyrics, the instruments. they are all amazing.
Not entirely sure what the lyrics are about, but the music on this song is more emotional than any of their other songs. No crazy solos needed. =]

4Show Me How to Live
great song... you gave me life now show me how to LIVE!
This is an awesome song! I love it. The Music itself is out of this world! I'm an Alter Bridge fan personally but this song really has a great sound to it and takes Chris Cornell to his best! Its one of my top 10 songs ever.
Really good solo... Morello really cranks it up wit the riff in the beggining!

5Cochise
Tom Morello... and awesome druming... Great vocals please vote it to make number 1
Classic Rock guitar with massive drums and a stellar base undertone. Add meaningful lyrics belted out with passion; what more could you want? This is not only their best song to date; this is a classic rock ballad to rank in the top fifty all time.
This should be the best audioslave song its AWESOME.

7What You Are
This song gives me chills! Awesome message and riffs. Heavy man, real heavy man..
Very underrated.. How he changes the tone of his voice at 3:10
Are you kidding me? Guys this is one of the best songs made by audioslave from the self titled album

8Doesn't Remind Me
Beat and Rhythm is just amazing! Should be way higher! Chills me out so much too!
This song is absolutely incredible by itself. When heard as part of the music video, it's that much better.
Awesome track... Just love the guitar solo. Amazing rhythms. Should be way higher in the list...

9Shadow of the Sun
Audioslave's most underrated song, overshadowed by other great songs from their best album. Cornell's vocals are absolutely beautiful as he demonstrates his tremendous range and technique. Tom Morello's solo in the middle is too short. It sounds so amazing that I wish he could continue for minutes. Fortunately for live audiences, he did have time to show off his unique, elite musical interpretation skills on the electric guitar.
Not to mention, the deep lyrics:
"I can tell you why people go insane.
I can show you how you could do the same.
I can tell you why the end will never come.
I can tell you I'm a shadow on the sun. "
Great song, very deep. My mind wonders when I listen to this song. When I first heard it I had to find out who it was from and download it.
I believe this is Audioslave's most unique songs. The song begins with a hypnotizing guitar and vocal intro followed by a heavy chorus, psychedelic guitar solo, and then the song ends with a explosive heavy outro. Probably one of Audioslave's most heaviest riffs. This song was even in the movie Collateral starring Tom Cruise.

10Gasoline
It's so hard to pick between Show Me How to Live and Gasoline, but I'm voting for this because it deserves to be higher on the list.
I love so many of Audioslave's songs, it was very hard to pick. However, I agreed with the previous comm enter, this song should be much higher.
Oh oh ooh ooh... Buurninng thaat gassoolline...!

The riff to this song is absolutely phenomenal. Seriously, just go listen to this song right now. This is the works of Chris Cornell's vocals at his finest. This song deserves to be in the top 10.

Pure anger. Just like it should be.

15Out of Exile
Amazing riff and great energy throughout! This definitely deserves the top ten.
Only Audislave song which is better than this one is Like a Stone, so I really don't see how this song is 18th.

16The Last Remaining Light

This song is memorizing and eerie, it is unfortunate that not many know of this song, and the sad part is the main tune is very similar to that of like a stone, which is on the top of this list

17Sound of a Gun Listen to sample

18Yesterday to Tomorrow
#18? Why so low, this is a really damn good track. That melody where the guitar and Chris Cornell's voice blends together so well around the first bit when he does that sing-a-long is just awe-inspiring.
I love how it starts out with a great baseline, and then the lyrics just make me feel something. Of course, Morello also had an amazing solo. Rock On!
The guitar solo is rad

24Set It Off
Is anyone actually listening to the songs? This is a must in the top 10!
It is very sad this band isn't together anymore
Listen to sample

25Getaway Car
I think this is an unusual Audioslave song. In my opinion, is one of the smoothest songs of the first album and maybe from all Audioslave songs. I consider it as a power ballad or a very deep song, that starts as a sad song and gains power in the chorus. The solo is great, because it's different from other Morello's solos: instead of using effects, it just uses some delay or reverb and it has a bluesy style, like the song. I always get a particular feeling when listening the song, and I have to say that I'll never get tired of listening to it, I've loved it since the first time I heard it. I'ts gonna be always one of my favorite songs.
This should definitely be in the top ten. Probably their most underrated song, not to mention their most meaningful. Love listening to this song when I'm having a bad day, always lifts me off my feet!

27Man or Animal

Why isn't this song higher up? The chords are brilliant this song is as good as Doesn't Remind Me, for that.
Oh come on! This song is pretty awesome, not to mention those jagged vocals at the end. Rate it up!
Very underrated song from audioslave, love the humming part in the chorus

30Wide Awake
This is one of their best songs in my opinion. It starts off slow but the eventual climax is great epic and Chris Cornell's voice is really good at the end. This deserves to be so much higher
This song is bad ass and really epic and deserves to be among the top ten at least.
Awesome and catchy corous

31Light My Way
Heaviest riff off the first album, cannot believe this isn't in the top 10 let alone the list alone.
Audioslave's first recorded song, heavy bass riff and Cornello's trademark vocals. Amazing song.
Good song acctually suprised it wasnt #1 I herd all the others infront of it and relized it

32The Worm
I feel that this is one of their most underrated songs. It's got such a powerful chorus, mixed with a groovy verse.

36We Got the Whip
Very nice song from cochise

37Hypnotize
This song is really different from the rest of the album, but it is very good! The guitar sound, the hypnotizing bass line, the fast Wilk's drumming and the low Cornell's vocals make this a very good song!
