Last week, Metallica released their performance from the Chris Cornell I Am The Highway tribute concert as an LP for their Vinyl Club subscribers, and Vicki Cornell made sure the band knew how appreciative she and her children were in a thankful Instagram post.

"Thank you so much to Metallica for the love and appreciation that you have shown for Chris and for memorializing that love, admiration and support from your performances at the I Am the Highway tribute on this truly amazing and special vinyl," she wrote. "Joining the tribute concert meant so much to me and my children and to so many fans around the world… And I know how proud Chris would be, not only because you were there as his friends, but also because he was such a huge Metallica fan. Thank you so much and thank you @larsulrich for your very kind words about Chris. It is true that 'a man is not dead while his name is still spoken.' Thank you for continuing to honor him. Loudlove ❤️ Vicky, Toni and Christopher"

During that performance in January 2019 Metallica performed "All Your Lies" and "Head Injury," which were both featured on Soundgarden's 1988 album, Ultramega OK.
