Audioslave gets political at Warfield / Cornell goes after Bush, Rage-style

"I don't like bombing people in the name of people who pay taxes," Cornell growled. "It pisses me off."

De la Rocha, eat your heart out.

On a stage flanked by anti-war signs ("How Many Iraqis Per Gallon?" and "Somewhere in Texas a Village Is Missing Its Idiot"), Audioslave -- Cornell, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk -- showed it has successfully struck a balance between Rage's musical manifestos and the dark confessionals Cornell wrote with Soundgarden.
