The band, which had released hit songs and found success, marked a mainstream breakthrough with "Superunknown", its 1994 album that won them two Grammys, sold more than five million units in the USA, and launched five hits, including "Black Hole Sun", one of the most popular alternative rock songs from the 1990s.

He eventually became a Grammy victor with Soundgarden, formed in 1984 and coming out of the rapidly growing Seattle music scene, which included Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

The group hit its commercial peak with its breakout album, "Superunknown", in 1994, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for best rock album.

Formed in 1984 by Cornell, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto, Soundgarden's third studio album, Badmotorfinger, in 1991 spawned enormously popular singles Jesus Christ Pose, 'Rusty Cage and Outshined that received regular play on alternative rock radio stations.

His songs such as "Fell on Black Days" and "The Day I Tried to Live" appeared to touch on his darkness, but Cornell would play down deeper meanings that listeners heard in his lyrics.

In 2001, Cornell joined with three former members of Rage Against the Machine to form Audioslave.

Soundgarden was to headline Friday at Rock on the Range, a three-day concert in Columbus, Ohio.

The 52-year-old Cornell was the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave. His final decade marked a resurgence of creative energy, with Cornell reuniting Soundgarden and releasing a series of solo albums. He and his wife started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, supporting children facing hard challenges, like homelessness, abuse, poverty, and neglect.

Cornell was roommates with Andrew Wood, lead singer of the Mother Love Bone, who died of a heroin overdose in 1990.
