Audioslave‘s video for “Like a Stone” has officially hit one billion views on YouTube.

The clip is the first to hit the milestone from the now-defunct supergroup, which featured late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell alongside Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk. Neither Soundgarden nor Rage has a video with one billion views.

“Like a Stone” was a single off Audioslave’s self-titled 2002 debut album. Its video, which was uploaded to YouTube in 2009, features the band performing together in an otherwise empty room.

Following Cornell’s death in 2017, Morello, Commerford and Wilk performed an instrumental version of “Like a Stone” during shows with their Rage offshoot band, Prophets of Rage.
