On Thursday, May 25, the social media accounts for Soundgarden and Audioslave went dark to honor Cornell.

The rocker will be laid to rest today (May 26) in Los Angeles in a private ceremony. The singer was found dead in a Detroit hotel room on May 17. A medical examiner declared the cause of death suicide by hanging. Cornell’s wife, Vicky, believes that the anxiety drug Ativan may have contributed to Cornell’s decision to take his life.
