Slash Denies Rumors That Guns N’ Roses Will Contribute To New Terminator Soundtrack
Last week, everyone squealed in joy at the rumor that Guns N’ Roses would contribute a song to the soundtrack of the new Terminator film. This is in part because, hey, new G’N’R tunes, but also because it’s a throwback to the band’s track You Could Be Mine appearing in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (remember, when John Connors rides off with Budnick on the back of his dirt bike?). However, now we can all join in a chorus of ‘AW!’, as Slash has denied that Guns N’ Roses will contribute to the new Terminator movie.
In an interview with TruckNation, the guitarist put the rumor to rest, saying, “There’s nothing in the Terminator movie. These rumors, they take off and then they get a life of their own. And you can’t reel them in. They just sort of get tossed around in the wind. Anyway, there’s nothing in there, in that.”

According to Slash, the band’s focus is on their upcoming North American tour.
“We’re just doing this one run [of shows] in the States and a couple of dates in Mexico end of this month into November,” said Slash. “And so that’s it for Guns for now. And I think we have something coming up in March as far as touring is concerned. Obviously, everybody knows that we’re working on new material, which is really exciting…”
