"Show Me How to Live" is a song by American rock band Audioslave. It was released in June 2003 as the third single from their first album, Audioslave released in 2003. It peaked at number 67 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, number 2 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and number 4 in the Modern Rock Tracks.
The song has a relatively fast tempo. It contains heavy guitar and drum riffs and a solo broken up with a phasing, fluttering effect by Tom Morello, achieved by using a combination of tremolo picking the high E-string, using his trademark Dunlop Crybaby wah pedal and a ring modulator effect.(B) On the final note, singer Chris Cornell achieves an unusual effect by repeatedly striking his throat with the side of his hand while changing pitch.
