Chris Cornell: You Know My Name

Friday, 19 May, 2017

Chris Cornell, the influential, forceful singer with Soundgarden, which was one of the founding bands of the grunge rock genre, died on Wednesday night in Detroit hours after the band had performed there. He was 52. The death was suicide by hanging, the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office said yesterday afternoon. One of Chris Cornell’s finest songs, You Know My Name, accompanied the opening credits of 007’s Casino Royale. Great song, great film. RIP Chris Cornell.

“Arm yourself because no one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can’t deny the prize, it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you willing to die?”
