Spirited activist big band Brass Against has added another hard-rock cover to their repertoire with Audioslave's 2002 radio hit "Show Me How to Live." The original track made room for singer Chris Cornell to showcase his powerful vocal talents, and continuing in that vein, guest vocalist Amanda Brown — who previously covered another Audioslave song, "Gasoline," with the group — takes center stage here. Brown rose to fame when she appeared on competitive singing show The Voice, but she's also known for providing back vocals to iconic artists like Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake and Lenny Kravtiz. Her enormous pipes stand out among the tightly choreographed performance of the Brass Against crew. Rousing and intriguing, the unorthodox cover — filmed at the Big Orange Sheep Studio in New York City — is a lively tribute to the late Cornell and shows off the outfit's musical prowess and versatility. Below, check out Brass Against's equally captivating cover of Pantera's "Walk," with singer Sophia Urista.
