Watch Chris Cornell’s kids accept a Grammy Award on behalf of their dad

When the nominees for the Grammy for Best Rock Performance were announced, it was hard not to hope that it would go to Chris Cornell.

Chris’ last single, “When Bad Does Good,” was a previously unreleased track from a massive box set. With its lines “Standing beside an open grave/Your faith decided/Your life erase” felt like some eerie posthumous message.

The track was up against some tough competition, including Greta Van Fleet and Arctic Monkeys. In the end, though, it was too tough for the Academy to vote against Chris’ song.

Chris’ kids, Toni and Christoper, accepted the Grammy on his behalf.
