"Out of Exile" is the title track from Audioslave's second album of the same name and the fourth and final single released from the album.

An excerpt of this song was used at the 2006 Pro40 tournament.

In an interview for the bonus DVD that came with Audioslave's Revelations, Chris Cornell said that this song was written when his wife was pregnant. He said that his wife and soon-to-be-born child were a bright spot, and a way to get out of a bad mood, or "Out of Exile".

Guitar & Bass[edit]

Out of Exile is played in Drop D tuning, (D-A-D-G-B-e and D-A-D-G) and was most likely to be recorded with Tom using his signature Fender Telecaster, "Sendero Luminoso". The verse of the song is a melodic riff that is played by Tom using a plucking technique with the employment of a delay pedal. The opening riff on the bass is played by simply muting the strings and striking them while moving slowly up the neck of the bass to the body
