Cornell played expensive fundraiser shows for President Obama in 2012 in Iowa and San Francisco, with costs for one show ranging from $100 to $7,000 for a photo with Obama. Soundgarden also performed at Obama’s Inaugural Ball in 2013.

Cornell told the Washington Post in 2013 that Soundgarden playing for Obama was ‘triumphant.’

“I had done three different Obama fundraiser events alone, just with an acoustic guitar. When inauguration came up, they invited me to play, and I said, ‘I’m out touring with my band. What if my band played?’ And they loved the idea of Soundgarden doing it. To me it just seemed like a triumphant thing to be able to do.”

“When we went there, unfortunately, it becomes less about the moments you’re onstage and more about just getting from the hotel to the event, and getting inside and everything happening the way it’s supposed to. It was all that – it was totally crazy, and we were totally fish out of water in terms of the kind of music we play. I like that. . . . The moments that Soundgarden has done things where we were fish out of water have always been the most memorable and the most rewarding.”

Cornell said in 2012 regarding Obama, “I for one am very excited about four more years.”

    • Shorehater

      Obama supporter or not, Cornell is an exceptional musician and his acoustic skills demonstrate that! Go back to watching the Wiz Kahlifa show and Imagine Dragons!

      • Thelonious Funk

        He may have skills, but his acoustic tours and albums are fucking boooooring.

        • Shorehater

          The Songbook album is far from boring and with the exception of that Timberland produced abortion he’s done some great solo stuff and his solo tours do well!

          • Felonious Punk

            I’ve openly spoken of my love for Songbook and Euphoria Mourning here. It’s Scream and that other solo record of his I don’t care for.

        Boom do the agreement with the Shorehater. The Cornell do the music good. And play the music good.

  • Eddie Yarler

    I can’t believe this joke actually thinks he can be president. Fuck this guy.

    • Shorehater

      What? When did Cornell say he wants to run? Did I miss something?

      • Eddie Yarler

        No Donald Trump, silly. Unless you were joking in which case that was kind of unnecessary. Regardless, I wouldn’t mind Cornell being president. He’d get my vote.

        • http://Boom.com Boom

          The Yarler, you do the voting for Boom for president. Boom take away all guns and make the hookers the legal and make the shit music illegal for the airwaves.

          Boom out!!
