Members of Anthrax, Alice In Chains, Mastodon Pay Tribute To Chris Cornell With Soundgarden Cover [VIDEO]

An all-star cast featuring members of Anthrax, Mastodon and Alice In Chains have come together to pay tribute to Chris Cornell with a new Soundgarden cover, and have shared their version of ‘Rusty Cage” along with a new video which can be viewed here.

Mark Menghi of the band Metal Allegiance, who was part of the team that devised the idea for the cover, said: “Bill and I were talking and one of us brought up how fun it would be to cover a Soundgarden tune, so we decided to do one. At the same time, Charlie and I were wrapping up a few songs and I told him Bill and I were speaking of doing something so he naturally joined in on the fun.”

Cornell has posthumously earned his first solo Billboard Number One with a cover of Guns N’ Roses‘ ‘Patience,’ recorded in 2016. The song is currently sitting on top of Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart.
