2018 closed with an unexpected surprise when a new Axl Rose song surfaced in, of all places, an episode of New Looney Tunes. The track, titled “Rock the Rock,” has now been officially released, and you can watch its video now on YouTube.
The video follows the plot of the episode, which finds the Guns N’ Roses frontman teaming up with the Looney Tunes to stop an asteroid from destroying the Earth — using the power of rock.
“Rock the Rock” is the first new tune from Rose since the 2008 GNR album Chinese Democracy. As for why he’d choose an episode of New Looney Tunes as the vehicle for the song, that’s unclear, but he’s certainly a fan of Bugs Bunny and the gang. Guns N’ Roses used the original show’s iconic theme as intro music during their Not in This Lifetime reunion tour.
New Looney Tunes airs on the Boomerang streaming service.
