First Axl Rose song in 10 years is released for cartoon
“Rock The Rock” is the first new song with Axl Rose on vocals in 10 years. She is in the latest episode of the New Looney Tunes cartoon, which aired on the Boomerang streaming service (US exclusive).
The episode was available on Christmas and Axl Rose learns from the cartoon characters that a great asteroid will collide with our planet and offers to help prevent the catastrophe along with his fictional band Steel Underpants, and for this they have to play loud music.
The general opinion is that “Rock The Rock” looks more like a song from AC/DC than from Guns N ‘Roses, so it looks like it was just a song recorded by Axl with studio musicians especially for the cartoon.

Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies. It was known for introducing Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Tweety, Sylvester, Granny, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Tasmanian Devil, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote and many other cartoon characters.
Looney Tunes’ name was inspired by Walt Disney’s musical series Silly Symphonies. They initially showcased musical compositions whose rights were held by Warner’s music publishing interests through the adventures of cartoon characters such as Bosko and, after losing him, Buddy. The animation studio gained a higher profile, however, following their addition of directors Tex Avery and Chuck Jones and voice actor Mel Blanc. From 1942 to 1964, Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were the most popular animated shorts in movie theaters.
