Chris Cornell Daughter Covers “Hunger Strike”


Chris Cornell’s daughter Toni Cornell has released her cover of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike” on the song’s 30th anniversary.

“Hunger Strike was released 30 years ago today. It’s not only one of the most iconic songs of all time but one of my personal favorites. I recorded it for Music Lives to raise money for covid relief in April 2020 and in tribute to my dad who would have been the first to do everything he could to help. (Full song in reel).

I love you daddy and I’m so proud of what you created, who you are and everything you believed in. This song represents all of that to me ♥️ #templeofthedog #chriscornell.”

Neilrogers4 responded, “Great song. Having EV sing on that song was so generous of your Dad. I get it, most of PJ was in the band but he didn’t have to allow EV to participate as he was kind of an outsider at that point. Btw, Love your version! Just beautiful! 👍🏻”

Sleepy__mermaid added, “Such beautiful and heartfelt cover, Toni. You’re so amazingly talented and you always make us true CC fans so proud. Thank you again for keeping his legacy alive. Sending lots of loud love to you and your sweet family ♥️🙏🏻 #chriscornellforever.”
