The cellists of Break of Reality have covered one of Soundgarden’s most iconic songs in tribute to Chris Cornell, and it is just perfect

Chris Cornell’s death last week shocked the music world. Ever since, tributes have been pouring in for Soundgarden and Audioslave star.

Break of Reality are an ensemble who bring a classical spin to rock music, so it’s only fitting that they paid tribute to one of the rock greats – with their own unique version of one of Soundgarden’s best known tracks – Black Hole Sun.
