Remembering Chris Cornell and his most notable songs

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's office will make an official determination about the cause of death.

Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell has died at the age of 52. Police found his body on the floor of his hotel room's bathroom in the early morning hours after the concert.

Chris and wife and children attend NY premiere of The Promise on April 18.

Chris Cornell performs with Soundgarden at the 2011 Voodoo Experience.

Cornell's representative, Brian Bumbery, says that Cornell's suicide was "sudden and unexpected" and that his wife and family are in shock.

"Detroit Rock City! It's great to be back here, honestly", Cornell said after the group started the show with "Ugly Truth". In 1984, he formed the band Soundgarden, which was influential in the 1990s grunge movement. His death was recently confirmed as a suicide by asphyxiation.

He and the band were in Detroit, Michigan, for a concert. Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots died of an accidental overdose in 2015.

Cornell died at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel, Woody said. Very sad. When I found out, I was so, so sad. "They're all young and these guys all had limitless potential in their lives in front of them". While Nirvana may have been the band that broke grunge into the mainstream, Soundgarden was the first to sign onto a major label.

They were a really good team before I came. "I've split with guys before, so it doesn't bother me". In fact, the only players heavier than him on the roster are linemen and tight ends .

Their most popular songs include "Black Hole Sun", "Fell On Black Days", "Spoonman", and "The Day I Tried To Live". The band had reunited in 2010 after years on hiatus.

The breakup wasn't anything unusual, Cornell told CNN in 2012. He then joined Audioslave, which included former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford. He added that more details would be released in a statement later Thursday.

As the charismatic frontman, Cornell was known for his raw and soulful voice.

"I was lucky enough to write and record two songs with him".

One of the locations where people gathered was the Sound Garden art sculpture at a Seattle park, for which Cornell's band Soundgarden was named.

The sad news of Chris Cornell's death has shaken the musical industry and the fans of the genre. Thinking of his family tonight!

The last song Cornell ever released was called "The Promise".

In light of the tragic news, several fans have taken to YouTube to share clips of the late rocker's final performance in tribute.
