The problem with modern rock music-- and this extends to '90s "Grunge" rock-- is that "artists" thought you could be "extreme" or be a "shredder," and this, somehow, would be enough. No, it's not. Cornell had a interesting voice, but it's not enough to emote.
First you have to write good songs.
Nirvana wrote a total of about 7.
Soundgarden is instantly forgettable.

Did you listen to the first song in this set?

It's a GREAT song.

I do agree that, for the most part, Chris Cornell was not a great songwriter.

But I think he wrote some great songs:

Preaching the End of the World

Black Hole Sun

Fell on Black Days

Times of Trouble

Hunger Strike

Cochise

And a lot of his other work was very, very good.

I think you don't understand the music.
