Around 2008, Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine had one solution to all problems: "Bring in Timbaland." Weezer mocked him for it in their hit "Pork and Beans," but Chris Cornell was foolish enough to listen. By that point Soundgarden was long dead and Audioslave had turned back into Rage Against the Machine. The result was the audio equivalent of a chocolate-covered cheeseburger: People enjoy the elements separately, but together it just makes you want to vomit. Cornell got the message, and the next year he was screaming out "Spoonman" onstage at Lollapalooza with a reformed Soundgarden. The universe was back in order.
