The cause of renowned grunge rock singer Chris Cornell's death was suicide, per the medical examiner.

ClickonDetroit is additionally saying police told them he was found with something around his neck, and Fox 2 Detroit is saying "sources tell Fox 2 it could be a possible suicide." Nirvana's Kurt Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home in 1994; his death was ruled a suicide. "They're all young and these guys all had limitless potential in their lives in front of them".

The video shows Cornell jamming out and playing guitar as he sang "Spoonman", a hit single from Soundgarden's 1994 album, "Superunknown".

"Black Hole Sun will live on as a classic, and his is a true legacy of rock and roll".

The breakup wasn't anything unusual, Cornell told CNN in 2012.
