Listen To Chris Cornell Sing 'Black Hole Sun' For The Last Time, Hours Before His Death

Hours before his sudden death at the age of 52, Soundgarden's Chris Cornell played what would be his final show, in Detroit. 

Since the band reunited in 2010 after a 13-year hiatus, Soundgarden performed regularly, seemingly unchanged by time. 

Watch as Soundgarden plays "Black Hole Sun" and "Fell on Black Days" at Cornell's last ever show in Detroit below:

Though he never assigned any specific meaning to Soundgarden's biggest hit "Black Hole Sun," Cornell told Rolling Stone in 1994 about the meaning of the lyric "Times are gone for honest men":

"It's really difficult for a person to create their own life and their own freedom. It's going to become more and more difficult, and it's going to create more and more disillusioned people who become dishonest and angry and are willing to fuck the next guy to get what they want. There's so much stepping on the backs of other people in our profession. We've been so lucky that we've never had to do that. Part of it was because of our own tenacity, and part of it was because we were lucky."
