Is Chris Cornell the same guy who made that album "Scream" with Timbaland? How come he's still allowed to speak?

A band of 7 top-notch instrumentalists and vocalists sounds pretty boring to me.

Oooh they all look so serious on a dark mysterious black and white music video, as if they were making really good serious music, oooh, I'm so scared.

Listened to this album again today. Man, it is BAD! I mean, don't blame haters or people who don't appreciate true art or things like that. This album is SHIT, period. "Cheat on Me" is the only track that I might listen again, just one more time. But that's about it.

But my point is I don't think the singles chart have anything to do at ALL with the success of rock music as a genre. You are just talking about the singles chart - and rock bands NEVER did well on them. Just do some research about the Billboard Hot 100: The Who, Talking Heads, Soundgarden, Linkin Park, Radiohead, Nirvana, AC/DC, Foo Fighters, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Ramones, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, -very successful rock bands from all eras-, they NEVER had a number one single!!! When I say that rock and roll music still sells, that's exactly what I mean - some recent history: on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, U2 sold almost 500,000 copies of their latest album on the first week. Coldplay's "Viva la Vida" sold almost 750,000 (and I'm sure Mylo Xyloto will do just as good very soon). Metallica's "Death Magnetic" sold 500,000 in the first three days of release. You may say that this happened a few years ago - ok, let's talk about 2011 then, Cake, The Decemberists, Foo Fighters, Evanescence, they all went straight to number one. Do you get my point? Rock music was never successful on any singles chart, especially on the stupid Hot 100.

A Iggy Pop/Megadeth collaboration album is something I would love to hear, actually.

I can't believe the first line on this album is "I would cut my legs and tits off". It sounds like an old man talking nonsense over a mediocre rock band. That being said, I enjoyed the album.

Sounds like a song from the closing titles of a movie. Damn I will miss these guys.

I think the singles charts don't mean anything anymore. Rock music is still selling. People listen to their rock albums at home, not on the radio. It's been happening since the early 90s - "Smells Like Teen Spirit", one of the most important singles in music history, didn't even get to the top 5 on the Hot 100, and that was in 91.
