Best Audioslave Songs

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

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 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!

Amazing song! When the 'Be Yourself' bit hits in, it gets you so pumped up and so motivated. Chris Cornell's vocals are out of this world.

Tom's solo in the middle is so funky and sounds amazing with the effects.

3 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...

That chorus... need I day more

4 I Am the Highway

Such an amazing song, it gives you a tingling feeling every time you here it. The lyrics, the instruments. they are all amazing.

very calm and hypnotizing song

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.

Brilliant simple song with deep meaning

5 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.

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.

Solid riff. no other song riffs it out like this one. and holy crap the vocals

6 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

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

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!

7 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!

Gives a royal blood vine

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.

Best song by far

9 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

Honestly the guitar solo alone deserves a top 5 position.

15 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.

16 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?

It hurts me so much to see this song so low on the list

Actually this song has to holf the higher position here. With a couple of powerful music and text about death and people problems, this song delivers only good feelings to your ears.

17 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

Is amazing is everything song should be

Great track

18 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.

My personal favourite, but there are so many great audioslave songs
Brilliant song
Brilliant band

19 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

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

20 Original Fire

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

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

This first song I hear from audio slave in MTv

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

21 Shape of Things to Come

Dark, mysterious, desperate, beautiful

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

22 Wide 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

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.

One of the best vocal performans I've listened

23 Yesterday 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

24 Broken City

Deres no way dis song should at frkin #20... Its pure awesomeness.. !

25 Nothing Left to Say But Goodbye
26 Sound of a Gun

Great riff. One of my favorite songs by Audioslave

Great song, never got any attention.

27 The Worm

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

My absolute favorite Audioslave song! I don't understand why it's so underrated!

Another good music to be remembered

28 The Curse
29 Man or Animal

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

30 Dandelion

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

Great song... Get it up in the top ten

31 Light 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

32 One and the Same

This song is incredibly good, and very underrated. This song should be a lot further up there!

33 Jewel of the Summertime
34 Heavens Dead

Have you even listened to Audioslave and not heard this song?

This song needs to be remembered by all you guys

This is the most beautifull song of the band

35 We Got the Whip

Very nice song from cochise

36 Until We Fall
37 Hypnotize

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!

Cool song, nowhere near the worst! - mtndewlord

38 Somedays
39 Turn to Gold

This song was actually never released but if you YouTube it you will find it. Personally, I love it. Great riffs and RATM like!
