The Lyrics

Read the parody first (carefully), if you get lost the bottom comment will explain things.

I like the songs of this band, not all is lost
But they do not remind me of Soundgarden
With a great front man, CD's worth its cost
Yet it doesn't remind me of Soundgarden
There's no powerful lyrics or a beat that rocks
So it doesn't remind me of Soundgarden
It's like music's stiffled, in a box
So this doesn't remind me of Soundgarden

The years that I've loved, (now) that band is gone
(I) think of their greatness, is that wrong?
I won't buy no more you can bet
I don't want to lose, never one, to forget*...

"I like gypsy moths and radio talk" (oh...)
Well that doesn't remind me of Soundgarden
I like heavy music, but this is not (oh...)
So it doesn't remind me of Soundgarden
I like powerful rhythm, of the drums (oh...)
So it sort of reminds me of Soundgarden
I like carryin' wails, and this it has some (oh...)
So it sort of reminds me of Soundgarden

The years that I've loved, (now) that band is gone
(I) think of their greatness, is that wrong?
I might hear some more its no bet
I don't want to lose, never one*..

Then it takes me,
I start to like this song
Soft and sweeping
Like never, befo-or-ore
Something dreamy..
We will for-get the pa-a-ast
Slowly creeping
I won't look BACK.....

(guitar solo, not as good as Kim Thayil's, but still good)

Yeah, years that I've loved, (but) that band is gone
(I) think of their greatness, I move on
I will hear some more you can bet
I don't want to lose, never one*..

I like Chris Cornell's voice, Morello's guitar
And it really reminds me of Soundgarden
I like hearin' all the tracks, though not as hard
oh but still it reminds me of Sound-gar-den..
copyright 2005+ Red Ant The parody was originally going to be how I didn't like this song or Audioslave in general but as I listened to them more they grew on me. I was expecting Soundgarden at first, which they are not (hence the "Doesn't remind me of Soundgarden"). Anyway, I like Audioslave now. For those that don't know, Chris Cornell was the lead singer for Soundgarden (and now sings for Audioslave) and Kim Thayil was the guitarist. Tom Morello (formerly of Rage Against The Machine) is Audioslave's guitarist. *Interpret these lines as you see fit

Geez, Red, I don't know either group but with your bottom comments I COULD evaluate and vote on this...IF I knew the OS...which I don't...but I DO understand the point. For years I thought a certain U2 song was actually done by REM...and when I was trying to find the OS lyrics to do a parody I was temporarily flummoxed that I couldn't find them...and the reason for my confusion? The first time I ever heard the song was when I saw it done "Live" (a recorded version of a "live" performance) on VH1 or MTV a few years back...and I recognized Michael Stipe of REM as one of the singers...but I didn't recognize Bono from U2 at the time...he was ALSO singing. So I thought it was an REM song...wrong.

Thanks for the look Paul. This was only the second Audioslave song I've heard ("Be Yourself" was the first, its excellent). When I first heard this OS, this parody title immediately came to my mind. I guess one would have to know both this OS and a fair amount of SG's work to be able to rate this parody, giving this parody an incredibly limited chance vote-wise, but a thoughtful comment is better than a vote anyday.

I didn't know that Michael Stipe and U2 did a song together, though I'll admit U2 and REM aren't my favorite bands and more to the point I seldomly watch MTV anymore.

Hey, I don't know this song, but this parody has great rhyming, and I like it... wish i could vote
Red Ant - August 24, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks AFW and Dominic. This is getting pretty decent airplay around here right now, so you might hear it on a modern rock or alternative radio station soon.

Red - it was just for a Benefit Concert somewhere...and it had to have been maybe in 2001 or 2002, I think (could be wrong though, be it's certainly before 2003 because I lived somewhere else when I saw it and I've been in this location since Aug. 2002). I really don't know too much U2 or REM myself, although I've decided to delve a little more deeply into both those groups since I used one of each of their songs for parodies in the last few months...they were good vehicles for serious pieces...always interested in finding more of those.

DKTOS, but 555 anyway(at least I don't think I've heard this one, I have heard other Audioslave songs), very good.
Red Ant - September 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Paul and Step-chan. This CD came out May 24 2005 and hit #1 in the US and this could possibly be the newest OS to be parodied here.

Good parody, Red... I like Audioslave's new album more than the first one. Out of Exile sounds a lot like Temple of the Dog.

Thanks MrMacphisto.

I firmly believe Audioslave is a band that might be around for awhile. I really like their stuff even if it isn't as hard as their predecessors (Soundgarden and RATM).
Red Ant - December 06, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, and I am (I hope) going to have one of "Be Yourself" done by Thursday, forgot I had most of that completed.
Oh dude - February 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Ha! This is good. And yeah, I know what you mean; it's a slow, mellow song, nothing like Soundgarden! =]
