Listen to Axl Rose’s first track in a decade, Rock The Rock

The tune appeared in a recent episode of New Looney Tunes.

Between his work with Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC, we haven’t heard new material from Axl Rose for a while. The legendary vocalist put an end to that by surprising fans with his first song in a decade, Rock The Rock.

The tune premiered in a recent New Looney Tunes episode, soundtracking the capers of Bugs Bunny and company. It’s a pulsating tune that doesn’t stray too far from the recipe that made Axl one of rock’s greatest frontmen – so it’ll please fans of both GN’R and AC/DC. And if you’ve ever wanted to see Bugs Bunny nail a guitar solo, check out the Rock The Rock video above.

GN’R’s last album, Chinese Democracy, arrived in 2008 – that was the last we heard from Rose. He has, however, been keeping himself busy. GN’R recently concluded their two-year Not In This Lifetime tour, and he’s been a member of AC/DC since 2016, when the Aussie band’s vocalist Brian Johnson departed the group.
