Audioslave was an American rock supergroup whose songs "Shape of Things to Come" and "Wide Awake" were featured in the Miami Vice film.

CareerEdit

The band was formed after the breakup of Rage Against The Machine in 2000, when the remaining members of that band (Morello, Commerford and Wilk) decided to continue playing together. Ex-Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell was quickly recruited, and Audioslave was formed. In 2002 they released their first album, Audioslave, and by 2006 it had achieved triple platinum status. Their next album, Out Of Exil, released in 2005, entered the charts at the top of the Billboard Top 200, but in the long term failed to match the success of their debut album. Audioslave contributed two tracks, "Shape of Things to Come" and "Wide Awake", to the Miami Vice film in 2006, but the songs were absent from the corresponding soundtrack as the band wished to hold the songs back for what would be their final album, Revelations in 2007. The group disbanded later that year.
