“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, I had the pleasure of hanging out with him and he was honestly one of the coolest motherfuckers I had ever met in my fucking life, so we decided that we were going to pay a little tribute to Mr. Cornell tonight. 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 fucking best; I’m going to give my best. I’m no Chris Cornell, but God damn it, if you know the words, you fucking help us sing it. Are you ready?”said Corey Taylor.
