NY Rock spoke with Audioslave’s Tim Commerford who agreed that Rage Against the Machine and Soundgarden wasn’t the group’s only influences. “That’s true. Take ‘Hypnotize,’ for example. There we tried out how it would sound if we’d combine some Led Zeppelin parts with elements of the Chemical Brothers,” Commerford said. “Now it sounds like something else and completely new!
