Not only did Audioslave score a #1 hit single on the Alternative Songs chart with "Like A Stone," but the single became Chris' most successful hit of his career. That's a pretty big deal following the mega success of "Black Hole Sun," featured on Soundgarden's (arguably) magnum opus "Superunknown." 

Below are some notable lyrics to "Like a Stone," per Genius

🎶In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there, like a stone
I'll wait for you there, alone, alone🎶

It all started with Soundgarden. It's where Chris is regarded as his most iconic, being both revered and a little underrated as a founding father of grunge music. Nevertheless, the band scored its biggest hit with "Black Hole Sun" in 1994, and since then, the single has been considered a rock classic. 

Below are some significant lyrics to "Black Hole Sun," also thanks to Genius

Black hole sun, won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun, won't you come?
Won't you come? Won't you come?
