Just like the babes, the cars, the gadgets, and the explosions, the THEME SONG is a pretty important component of any 007 flick. So now we get word that singer/songwriter Chris Cornell will be contributed the opening track to the "Casino Royale" credits sequence.

From IGN’s Music News: "Chris Cornell, the screaming siren voiced frontman of Audioslave (and former lead singer for Soundgarden, as well as Temple of the Dog) has written the main title theme to the new James Bond entry "Casino Royale."

Cornell collaborated on the song, entitled "You Know My Name," with long time Bond composer David Arnold (who has scored all the Bond films since "Tomorrow Never Dies")."
