soundgarden 2012 debi del grande Listen: Chris Cornells live mash up of Metallica and U2

Last week, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell kicked off his second “Songbook” acoustic tour at San Diego’s Balboa Theatre. There, he treated audiences to quite the special double cover/mash-up, singing the lyrics from Metallica’s “One” while playing the music from U2’s “One”. It’s a rendition so seamless and stunning, you almost forget it’s comprised of two very different songs. Listen to a live recording below:

And, for full effect, revisit both of the original tracks:
