Guns N Roses frontman Axl Rose is set to appear in an upcoming episode of New Looney Tunes. A cartoon rendition of the singer performs his first new song in over a decade, helping Bugs Bunny and co. to blow up an asteroid.

“Rock The Rock” features Rose on vocals, and the official video sees the artist singing the song with a Looney Tunes backing band so loud it destroys an asteroid that swallowed several satellites… Because why not?

As Cos points out, the song is a bit different to the Guns N Roses music we’re used to, possibly drawing inspiration from Roses time fronting AC/DC back in 2016. The track might be the first new music from Rose since Guns N’ Roses 2008 album Chinese Democracy, but it looks like more could be on the way.

Guitarist Richard Fortus recently revealed in an interview new music could “happen faster than you think“. However, considering the 15 year gap between their last two albums, that doesn’t give much away in terms of a timeline.

Back in 2016 Guns N Roses set out on a mammoth reunion tour which made it’s way down under in 2017. Rose has already said they’ll be back for more, whilst Slash has said he is keen to record new music with the group. Slash is set to hit our shores for a solo tour this year, hopefully it doesn’t push the wait for new GnR music back too far.

Whilst we wait for more new music from the rock icons, check out Axl Rose and the Looney Tunes performing “Rock The Rock” below.
