Soundgarden, Audioslave Top iTunes, Amazon Charts After Chris Cornell’s Death
Singer-musician Chris Cornell may have passed away to the shock of many Wednesday night, but his songs are very much alive, soaring high on iTunes and Amazon.
While the sudden rise in the sales of Cornell’s songs was imminent because of his sudden demise, it is interesting to note what kind of music the fans are after the most.
TMZ reported Thursday that Soundgarden’s album entitled, “Superunknown” held the top spot on iTunes while Audioslave’s self-titled album was Number 2. Cornell was the lead singer of both bands.
Amazon’s Movers & Shakers digital music ranking also included Cornell’s songs and album on the top charts such as “Songbook”, “Euphoria Mourning”, “Can’t Change Me”, and “Fell on Black Days” by the Soundgarden.
Chris Cornell’s death was recently ruled by the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office as suicide by hanging. The popular rock superstar killed himself less than an hour after performing in Detroit with his band, Soundgarden.
The show ended at around 11 pm and Cornell’s unresponsive body was discovered on the bathroom floor of his hotel room at the MGM Grand Detroit around midnight. The police who responded to the emergency call pronounced the singer dead on the scene.
Fans and fellow musicians who are in disbelief about the whole thing took to Twitter and Instagram their sentiments on Cornell’s passing.
Globally acclaimed British rock band, Coldplay tweeted a music video by Soundgarden with a caption “X”. Sir Elton John, one of the bestselling music artists in the world, tweeted, “Shocked and saddened by the sudden death of @chriscornell. A great singer, songwriter, and the loveliest man.” The tweet also carried a lovely photo of Chris.
Another rock legend, Steven Tyler, posted a picture of himself with Cornell with a caption that most likely encapsulates the feelings of music fans all over the world, “There’s a new star in the heavens tonight…that will shine forever from the memory of your dream… you were the icing on every band you played with… you were a great friend Chris… the world will miss you deeply… sadly… lovingly…”
