Are Guns N’ Roses Writing A Song For The New Terminator Movie?
Rumours of new Guns N’ Roses material have been rife since Axl, Slash and Duff reformed back in 2016 for the hyper-successful Not In This Lifetime tour. Could it actually happen? Well, if you listen to Guns N’ Roses fansite Guns Over Oz then yes, it’s on!
Posting on Facebook, the Australian GN’R community say that Guns N’ Roses will be putting a brand new song on the soundtrack to the new Terminator movie. This isn’t the first time Axl and co. have teamed up with Skynet, as their 1991 smash You Could Be Mine provided the official soundtrack to Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
According to Guns Over Oz, “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.
“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.”

Of course, these are just rumours at the moment, but earlier this year Slash also confirmed that GNR were working on new music.
Speaking to Detroit’s 101 WRIF radio station in May, the guitarist said: “At this point, I do know that we are gonna do this run [of autumn gigs], and we’ve already started working on stuff. So, there you go.”
Short and sweet, but the “stuff” the band were working on this spring could have transformed into a new track for Terminator: Dark Fate. The movie is released on November 1, so we’ll have to wait and see.
