Ex-Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell and the Zack de la Rocha-less Rage Against the Machine have yet to determine a name for themselves. How about Rage Against the Internet, where the demos for the supergroup’s hotly anticipated album recently showed up? The 13 tunes are being avidly downloaded and have been receiving some radio play. And interest is all the more intense since the band (which was to play Ozzfest) has already broken up. The Rick Rubin-produced CD will hopefully be out by year’s end. Says a rep for Epic Records: ”In a perfect world, they’d come up with a name today, and we’d put the album out in the fall.” No word on whether it’ll be released on a Sunday.
