The Soundgarden frontman decided to tackle his own stunts for the western-style shoot for Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart and it left him nursing a small injury.

According to, the scene in question features Cornell preparing to be hanged as a liquid chemical is poured onto the noose around his neck, but after having to repeat the shot a number of times, the substance eventually rubbed off on his neck and burned his skin.

The singer has yet to comment on the news.
