Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose surprised his fans by debuting his first new music in over a decade in a truly unique way - on a Looney Tunes cartoon.

The song, entitled "Rock the Rock", was released in a video shared by Boomerang on Friday which features an animated Rose rocking out to the song that some fans have noted sounds more like AC/DC - which Rose also sings for - than Guns N' Roses.

Even though Rose has recently been touring with members of the old GNR lineup including Slash and Duff McKagan, he temporarily traded them in for animated bandmates in a new song, "Rock the Rock".

According to Blabbermouth, Rose appeared on the episode of the show that premiered on December 24.

The episode originally aired in December past year, but the Boomerang network which broadcast it have only today confirmed that the character was indeed voiced by Axl.

Rockets trade Michael-Carter Williams, cash to Bulls
Carter-Williams has since had stops in Milwaukee, Chicago and Charlotte, his role and production diminishing with each stop. The well-traveled Michael Carter Williams is on the move again, but he can't get comfortable in his new (old) home.

"Rock the Rock" was written by Looney Tunes cartoon composers Rob Janas and Joshua Funk.

Bugs Bunny then proposes that Rose play loud enough to destroy the asteroid before it can land, with the Looney Tunes crew serving as his backing band.

He said: "There is a rumour that Axl Rose recorded that song for a different Bolan project without Guns N' Roses, but again, it is not ours".

Late previous year, there were rumours that Guns N' Roses had recorded a cover of Children Of The Revolution for a Marc Bolan and T-Rex tribute album, but those were shot down by producer Hal Willner.
