Best Audioslave Songs

The Top Ten

1 Like a Stone 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

2 Be Yourself Be 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"

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

Much better than "Like a Stone"! Chris Cornell have an excellent voice!

Why so low

3 Show Me How to Live Show 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.

Just because it's some boring slow emotional rock ballad doesn't make it the best song. Reading through this list and not seeing Show Me How To Live on the list means you people either live under a rock, or you're just deaf...

This is way better than both Like A Stone and Be Yourself in my opinion. Pure grunge.

4 I Am the Highway I 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.

I love this one but I wish shadow on the son, and wide awake were higher, to many people voting what they heard on radio.

Best get up & getter going song

5 Cochise Cochise

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.

Great hard rock feel, Tom Morello is a great guitarist and he really shows us that in this track.

Best from both Cornell and Morello.

6 What You Are What 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

By far my favorite from audioslave

Are you kidding me? Guys this is one of the best songs made by audioslave from the self titled album

7 Gasoline Gasoline

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.

Melodic Vocals Cris Cornell At The Height Of His Vocal Prowess. Amazing!

8 Shadow 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. "

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.

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.

Brilliantly made song, the guitar interlude and the solo give me the chills. Very nice atmospheric rock song that has a very heavy outro. - NuMetalManiak

9 Doesn't Remind Me Doesn'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.

If this can't be higher than be yourself I will have to hate be yourself. It captivates the love and longing more than like a stone

Cochise is 2nd for me after this one. How come there are so many much worse songs above these ones? - Feirceraven

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.

This By far is the BEST song by Audioslave! 13th? Sad! :@

Pure anger. Just like it should be.

14 The Last Remaining Light The 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

15 Original Fire Original Fire

Not the best song. But its like cochise the rhythm maches the lyrics perfectly

16 Your Time Has Come Your Time Has Come

This song is powerful. It could be a song about war (well it is), street violence, illness, or whatever dark problem you're dealing with, but it's still full of energy and drive. They've got a lot of great music but this should be higher on the list.

Why is this amazing song so low on the list?

17 Getaway Car Getaway 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!

Chris Cornell's vocals are smooth and an exhausted scream in the chorus (like most others but this has a redemption tone to it) which feels personal and easy to relate to. This song will never die. Audioslave is incredible.

18 Set It Off Set 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

19 Shape of Things to Come Shape of Things to Come

Dark, mysterious, desperate, beautiful
