Rock On The Range is known to be one of the heaviest music festivals in the country. In past years, the festival has been headlined by Metallica, ZZ Top, Rob Zombie, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson and many more.
Last year attendees were plagued by the the weather and even more so devastated by the death of Chris Cornell in Detroit on May 18th was just hours before he was set to play Rock on the Range with his band, Soundgarden.
That day Rock on the Range acts performed emotional tributes to Cornell’s passing. Slipknot Corey Taylor and Stone Sour’s Christian Martucci dedicated a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” to Cornell. They also covered Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike.” Live joined in the recognitions by covering Audioslave’s “I Am the Highway,” and Bush played the refrain of “Black Hole Sun” before launching into R.E.M.’s“The One I Love.”
