    They had a good sound, but their leftist propaganda and the Che Guevara bullshit always kept me from being a fan of them. Shame, really.

    Tom Morello is a bad-ass riff guitar player, but my god, his solos are retarded and HORRIBLE.

    I could care less about solos if you can pull me into the groove. Morello can do that with the best.

    in my opinion, they made one good record and everything after that sounded exactly the same. tom morello has made a career playing the same riff over and over. "and then the renaissance came and things continued to change" that line is so lame i laugh every time i hear it.

    True, but some of his solos are so fucking horrible, it's actually distracting and ruins the song. It's especially bad when he starts fucking around with effects.

    I liked their first album a lot, although it was hit or miss, which is true with everything Chris Connell does. What was bad about it?

    they just sucked. they struggled through songs sloppily. cornells voice sounded like shit. at one point he did a song by himself with just an acoustic guitar and he couldnt play for shit. i could have played the song better than he did. it was a really simple song and he blew it.

    I saw them as well, but only because they were playing with Janes Addiction. I didnt stay for the whole Audioslave show.

    That always says a lot about artists. How they treat the sound people, the roadies, and the people that run the show. Sucks that hes one of the bad ones. He's got a great set of pipes.
