“I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run”
There’s something about that lyric that is so Eric Church. And that’s just one of the many lyrics to come from Chris Cornell that touched people around the World, myself included.
Press play below to watch Church pay his respects to the late Soundgarden front-man, covering “Rusty Cage” from the band’s Badmotorfinger LP at a recent stop in Washington, DC.
Cornell once referred to the song as a “hillbilly Black Sabbath crossover“…and I think that suits Church perfectly!
Eric Church is not the only Country artist to have taken a liking in “Rusty Cage”. In fact, Eric seems to have followed the direction that Johnny Cash took in the guitar-driven cover below!
Cornell played “Rusty Cage” along with Soundgarden in Detroit at his final show just hours before his passing on May 17th. Rest easy, Chris.
