The sudden death of Chris Cornell rocked his fellow musicians to the core.

Dozens of tributes have poured out in the wake of the Soundgarden frontman's tragic suicide, most being of the musical variety.

Musicians like Chris Daughtry, Ryan Adams, and Ann Wilson of Heart also paid tribute to the late legend with their own covers. But the most emotional tribute came from Taylor Momsen, who nearly broke down performing Audioslave's Like A Stone.

Seeing as Momsen's band The Pretty Reckless opened for Soundgarden the night Cornell took his own life, we can't imagine how she got through this performance.
