Soungarden Dis Kanye West at Big Day Out in Australia

There was a thunder brewing Down Under this past weekend as Soundgarden and Kanye West squared off in a battle of music titans.

OK, not really. But Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell did take a slight jab at Kanye over the weekend at Australia's Big Day Out, where both acts were headlining.

While fans booed, Cornell quipped: "Sounds like there’s children playing music there. Retarded children, retarded as in held back. There’s no other word for it.”
