Could ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ be another classic?
Guns N’ Roses are rumoured to be joining forces with the team behind Terminator once again to lend a track to the forthcoming sequel.
The rock veterans famously leant the iconic track ‘You Could Be Mine’ to Terminator 2: Judgment Day back in 1991, with Arnold Schwarzenegger appearing in character in the music video to square up against the band.
Now, the fan group Australian GN’R community have posted on Facebook that sources close to the band have penned a new song for the upcoming sixth instalment of the Terminator franchise.
“A source who was working on Terminator: Dark Fate has informed that four members of Guns N’ Roses went to a private viewing of a rough copy of the upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger sequel movie to see if they want to put a song on the soundtrack,” the fans claim.
“Apparently, Slash was at Axl’s house to record overdubs on a song for the rush release. At this point the song name is unknown. But yes 100% verified. Guns N’ Roses new music.”
Guns N’ Roses last album, ‘Chinese Democracy’, was released in 2008. The reunited ‘classic’ line-up of Rose, Slash, McKagan, Izzy Stradlin, and Steven Adler previously recorded together on 1987’s ‘Appetite For Destruction’.
“You know, by the time it gets to the place where anybody’s read it, it’s morphed into something more than what I directly said,” Slash said. “There is material that Axl’s [Rose, vocals] been working on for a while. It could be enough for a record if we put it all together.
“The whole thing of Guns N’ Roses getting in the studio and getting this record done – with myself and with Duff [McKagan, bass] and all that – it’s really just getting started. So it’s really hard to say.”
Bassist Duff McKagan confirmed GN’R were working on a new album with their classic line-up in February. “There’s never been a direct schedule on how we do things,” he said in a radio interview. “I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl has, really cool stuff he’s been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities of that, of course.”
Terminator: Dark Fate is due for release on October 23 in the UK. Check out all the photos, trailers, rumours and everything we know about the film here.
NME has contacted Guns N’ Roses to respond to the claims.
