See Dave Mustaine, Megadeth Pay Tribute to Cornell, Cover Soundgarden's

During Megadeth's performance in Tokyo on Thursday, May 18th, Dave Mustaine gave an impassioned tribute to Chris Cornell, even telling a disrespectful fan who interrupted him to "shut the fuck up, asshole." "A friend of mine, a friend of all of us, from Soundgarden, died today, and we have lost one of the most beautiful voices in rock, in history," Mustaine said. "I don't even know what to say other than we're gonna dedicate this next song to you, our friends in Tokyo, because we're here with you and we love you so much, and we want to celebrate Chris' life, today."

Megadeth then launched into a crunching cover of Soundgarden's "Outshined." "I don't sing like Chris, I could never sing like Chris," Mustaine admitted before the performance, adding, "I love you, Chris. I'll see you one day in Heaven."

Cornell died Wednesday, May 17th, in Detroit after his band Soundgarden played at the city's Fox Theater. He was 52.
