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.

Apple tries to address iPad Pro ‘bendgate’ concerns with new support page
That's not likely to be of much comfort to new iPad Pro owners who place as much a premium on aesthetics as they do performance. The article again reiterates that there may be a bend, but that it will be within a 400 micron tolerance.

"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.
