Moth

Album: Revelations (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the last song Audioslave wrote before they broke up in 2007. Revelations was originally complete with 11 songs, but producer Brendan O'Brien insisted he wanted a big, loud closer for the album. The next day, the band came up with "Moth."
  • The last lyrics Chris Cornell ever sang for Audioslave were, "I won't fly around your fire anymore," before he left the band to pursue his solo career. >>
