Grunge icons Soundgarden were slated to be one of the headliners on Rock on the Range, the huge metal festival taking place in Columbus this weekend.

In the wake of the sudden death of singer Chris Cornell, who passed away in Detroit last night, Soundgarden will no longer perform. Rather, a special tribute to Cornell will take place during what would have been the band's time slot.

Organizers have announced that the weekend will be devoted to the veteran singer and songwriter.

"We will celebrate and honor him all weekend long," organizers say on the Rock on the Range website, adding that Cornell was a "true hero to music" and "the voice of a generation."
