Stone Sour Covers Soundgarden’s ‘Outshined’ In Concert

May 19, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Much like Megadeth did last night, Stone Sour paid tribute to Chris Cornell during a concert at the Rock on the Range Kick-Off Party at the Express Live theater in downtown Columbus, Ohio on Thursday night. They also performed a cover of Soundgarden’s “Outshined.”

Corey Taylor said: “We lost a rock ‘n’ roll brother today. As you know, we lost Chris Cornell from Soundgarden today, sadly. He was one of my favorite singers, he was one of my favorite f–king all time songwriters and the fact that he is gone makes this world a little bit smaller. So one time, make some f–king noise for Chris Cornell,” he continued, which was met with a roar of applause from the festival crowd. I had the pleasure of hanging out with him and he was honestly one of the coolest motherf–kers I had ever met in my f–king life, so we decided that we were going to pay a little tribute to Mr. Cornell tonight.” Taylor went on, “We learned this song today. In fact, I’m not completely sure we’ve learned it, but God damn it, we’re going to give it our f–king best; I’m going to give my best. I’m no Chris Cornell, but God damn it, if you know the words, you f–king help us sing it. Are you ready?
