Despite Chris Cornell’s best attempts at sullying it, including a gig fronting the ’90s alternative supergroup/Frankenstein’s monster Audioslave and an ill-conceived Timbaland collaboration, Soundgarden’s legacy remains more or less firmly intact. While not as ahead of the curve as Nirvana

Tonight @ The Pabst Theater, 8 p.m.

Already on track to be 2009’s most notorious train wreck, Chris Cornell’s latest album, Scream, pairs the one-time Soundgarden wailer with Top 40 hitmaker (and rockist lightning rod) Timbaland. It quickly earned the expected derision from bloggers and cries of blasphemy from fans, as well as some unexpectedly amusing ridicule from Trent Reznor, with whom Cornell is now locked in an ever-escalading battle of words. To be sure, though, the album isn’t a failure because of its attempts at pop—if anything, Timbaland’s funky production is a vast improvement...

It seems believable enough: Nine Inch Nails has released yet another out-of-nowhere free download album, but, yeah, it's an April Fool's Day joke. This one's pretty good, though, since it's unusually mean-spirited, and further escalates the amazing Trent Reznor/Chris Cornell feud, with Reznor touting a Timbaland-produced dance album called Strobe Light. Reznor poses for the cover with a badass pai...

Chris Cornell�s cursed third solo album opens with the singer denouncing a �bitch� he met in a club, and doesn�t get any more tasteful from there. The oft-delayed album has long been a laughing stock on music blogs, and sure enough, the final product is every bit the travesty it was portended to be. Managing to conjure the execrable masculinity of rap-rock without actually rapping or rockin...

In the last two years I've interviewed a trio of grunge veterans�Chris Cornell, Gavin Rossdale and Scott Weiland�and all three struck me as sad, albeit in different ways. Chris Cornell was friendly, open and chatty, and also remarkably defensive. Unprompted, he floated an absurd theory about why the reception was so cold to his crappy 2007 solo album, a scattershot set of overproduced s...
