Cochise (3:41)

Cover of Audioslave

From Audioslave and 23 other releases

In an interview, guitarist Tom Morello said this about the song:

“Cochise was the last great American Indian chief to die free and absolutely unconquered. When several members of his family were captured, tortured, and hanged by the U.S. Cavalry, Cochise declared war on the entire Southwest and went on an unholy rampage, a warpath to end all warpaths. He and his warriors drove out thousands of settlers. Cochise the avenger, fearless and resolute, attacked everything in his path with an unbridled fury.”

“Cochise” was one of many songs to be included in the PlayStation 2 video game Guitar Hero. The song was also featured in the 2006 film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

A short clip of the song was also used in the 3rd episode of season 19 of The Simpsons, “Midnight Towboy”.

The song was used in a montage after the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

The song was used in trailers for the film Iron Man.
