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.

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
