Best Audioslave Songs

The Top Ten

1 Like a Stone Like a Stone Cover Art

Killer! I could for sure feel the pain of the lead vocalist.. Damn man.. Nice job! Especially the guitar bit at the very end is something supernatural and apart from the earthly pleasures... Even I listen to several songs altogether.. The pain in this song is chanceless.. Sizzling beats... Rocker! Killer! Insane..!

Something about this song just makes me feel so vulnerable. Probably because I know how much noise these guys can make as a group, and the fact that they don't have to make it in this song and it is their best by such a grand margin.

When I first heard this song I just let it repeating the song for 5-6times... I just got completely lost. The vocals are enchanting while the music was simple and perfect... definitely the best of audioslave

This song is so good, it is so emotional and uplifting at the same time, it has grunge written all over it too, a pure Pearl Jam influence, the guitar at the end is the best part too

2 I Am the Highway I Am the Highway Cover Art

I used to think this song was over rated but it is actually one of the best songs of the 2000s in my opinion now chris Cornell's haunting vocals hook it up nice but probably the best bit is the really haunting intro.

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.

This song is great. First song I ever heard by Audioslave and I haven't found a better one yet

I think that is really the best song of audioslave... The lyrics are just.. Perfect

3 Be Yourself Be Yourself Cover Art

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

'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"

Such an amazing and moving song. Powerful lyrics, sang so well due to Chris' great and dynamic vocal range, Tom Morello blows me away with his solo, Brad's drumming is so powerful and tasteful, and Tim's bass line is so groovy and tasty. A true work of art.

It is more than a song. The guitar parts were one of Tom Morello's best creations ever. The depth of the lyrics is great. It motivates you, inspires you cause you can only be yourself. Everybody else is taken.

4 Show Me How to Live Show Me How to Live Cover Art

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 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.

Probably one of their most unique songs. Grungy, distorted, and Chris' low, suave vocals in the beginning exploding into a screaming chorus. Perfect.

This song I really awesome. Specially love the guitar chords and show me how to live was the first song that makes me love like audioslave

5 Shadow of the Sun Shadow of the Sun  Cover Art

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.

This song has been used in a video in the game 'World In Conflict' the video just gives you goosebumps, its really a great song and Cornell's vocals just blow the roof off!

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

6 Cochise Cochise Cover Art

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.

Well never heard anything like this, the guitar intro sounds like a helicopter, that somehow dovetail the lyrics "go and save yourself", the band are here to save me from a suicide.

I'm a singer with a great range myself, but Chris set the bar so darn high with no crack and effortlessly! He was my all time best singer ever! A beautiful and powerful voice gone...

So much better than "Like A Stone", I have no clue how that crap song got to be number 1. Seriously though, "Cochise" is epic!

7 Gasoline Gasoline Cover Art

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.

Gives a royal blood vine

Oh oh ooh ooh... Buurninng thaat gassoolline...!

8 The Last Remaining Light The Last Remaining Light Cover Art

Is amazing is everything song should be

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

9 Bring Em Back Alive Bring Em Back Alive Cover Art

Well... what ever you say you can't give it enough credit

Awesome Voice Awesome lyrics MAybe ne of the best scream-likes and solos ever Great riff Really must be higher than that I say...2 maybe its Rock For Crying out loud

One of my favourtie songs.
My second favourite band at the moment

Okay this is complete BS the song has a great main riff and an incredible solo not to mention awesome lyrics

10 What You Are What You Are Cover Art

Love evyrthing by them, this one has the perfect blend of everything that made Audioslave one of the greatest rock bands to grace the earth!

Maybe this is my perception but this song gives the best description of women these days

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

The Contenders

11 Getaway Car Getaway Car Cover Art

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.

I was surprised to see this wasn’t in their top 10 best songs! Definitely one of their most underrated songs. This song is different than their typical songs. Tom Morello introduces a bluesy undertone while Chris Cornell sings with such a strong passion. Gives me the chills every time I hear it.

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.

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!

12 Out of Exile Out of Exile Cover Art

Amazing riff and great energy throughout! This definitely deserves the top ten.

Hands down, their best song. Followed by "Show Me How to Live", "Set it Off", and "Cochise".

Only Audislave song which is better than this one is Like a Stone, so I really don't see how this song is 18th.

Just an excellent song, chris cornell is something else

13 Revelations Revelations Cover Art

This really needs to be much more higher on the list. Awesome Song with great solos.

The best audioslave song. Much better than Like a Stone

This song is the best of grunge, put this on 1#

#1 is be yourself. This song is #2. Just listen and youll see

14 Doesn't Remind Me Doesn't Remind Me Cover Art

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

There are NOT 8 Audioslave songs better than this. It's my #1, but objectively I can't see how this could be any lower than #3 or #4.

This song is absolutely incredible by itself. When heard as part of the music video, it's that much better.

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

15 #1 Zero #1 Zero Cover Art

By far the best audioslave song. The lyrics are immensely spectacular

Te best music e hear. The song is wonderful and energetic

Best song ever should be #1 by far

epic I can hear it till my death

16 Moth

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.

Unique. Cornel all the way.

17 Set It Off Set It Off Cover Art

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

I think this should at least be top 10 (I am choosing it because of how low it is)

18 Man or Animal Man or Animal Cover Art

EPIC solo. All guitarists like me should recognize this as an amazing song. This is probably there most hard rock song ever!

You give an heart attack
I will give you more than that

19 Yesterday to Tomorrow Yesterday to Tomorrow Cover Art

#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

20 Original Fire Original Fire Cover Art

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

This song got balls, power; it's a smash in your face.

This first song I hear from audio slave in MTv

This is the best this song must be in number 1!

21 Shape of Things to Come Shape of Things to Come Cover Art

I love many of audioslaves songs.. Different songs at different momentS.. At this moment I like this one the best

Dark, mysterious, desperate, beautiful

22 Wide Awake Wide Awake Cover Art

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

I can't believe this isn't higher up the list, no matter what new music you're discovering this track trumps it all, number one song since I was twelve love it!

This is definitely my favorite song by them. I love what this song is talking about.

This song is bad ass and really epic and deserves to be among the top ten at least.

23 Exploder Exploder Cover Art

Its too badass to be this low ffs...

EPIC chorus and bridge

24 Nothing Left to Say But Goodbye
