"Show Me How to Live" is the third single by American rock band Audioslave from their debut album, "Audioslave" released in 2003.

"Show Me How to Live" has a relatively high tempo. The song contains heavy guitar/drum riffs and with a qawwali-esque, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan-like solo broken up with a phasing, fluttering effect by Tom Morello, achieved by using a combination of tremolo picking the high E-string and using his trademark Dunlop Crybaby wah pedal.(B) cite web|title=Shaking - Audioslave: Audioslave album review|author=Forest Moreau, Kevin|publisher= Shaking|url=|accessdate=2007-05-15|date=2002-11-24] Singer Chris Cornell also uses an interesting technique near the end of the song, when he changes pitch multiple times to produce an unusual effect, he achieves this by simply hitting his throat with the side of his hand and changing the pitch of his voice.cite web|title=The Audioslave News Portal - Frequently Asked Questions|author=Le Driver|publisher= The Audioslave News Portal|url=|accessdate=2007-05-15|date=2005-03-25]

Music video

The music video for the song featured the band involved in several car chases with police officers. The video also shows clips of the band playing in front of an audience in between car chase scenes. There are also clips of a radio DJ singing and dancing to the song. The band crashes into a road block set up by police and explodes at the end of the video. The car in the video, driven by lead singer Chris Cornell, is a replica of the 1970 Dodge Challenger from the film "Vanishing Point" (the video itself is actually a condensed version of said movie). Two cars were used during filming of the video, one of which was given away in a contest put on by the band. Cornell and the band's drummer, Brad Wilk, autographed the inside of the trunk of this car.

The video was filmed in Los Angeles, CA, produced by Allan Wachs and directed by AV Club.
