If there are two things hair metal superstars Guns N’ Roses are known for, it’s kickass tunes about heroin and solving roadside mysteries. It’s been the best-kept secret in heavy metal history that if there’s a pterodactyl’s ghost haunting an old mine or something like that somewhere along a tour route, G’N’R will stop at nothing to pull the rubber mask off of the money-hungry senior citizen behind the whole thing. So it should come as no surprise that frontman Axl Rose will be making a voice-cast appearance alongside the Mystery Gang in a new episode of Scooby Doo and Guess Who?
According to Rolling Stone, who are hosting an exclusive clip of Axl’s first appearance in the episode, “When Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and Scooby take a road trip down historic Route 66, they encounter a mysterious group of mud men who steal the Mystery Machine. While stranded in the desert, they check out an abandoned diner ‘to see if they have Wi-Fi inside’ — Daphne‘s priorities — where they discover Axl, who turns out to already be buddies with Shaggy and Scooby. As the gang dives deeper into the case, each member begins to disappear, and it’s eventually up to Shaggy, Scooby, and Axl to find their friends and solve the mystery.”
This, of course, is not Axl’s first 2D rodeo, as The PRP points out that the singer appeared in an episode of Looney Toons back in 2019, where he and Bugs Bunny stopped an incoming comet or some other madcap bullshit.
Meanwhile, Rose’s recent forays into cartoon voice acting raises the question: will Axl give up the life of a massive arena rock star to focus on voicing some kinda tap-dancing farm animal on a major cartoon? Fans will have to wait and see, but if we were betting, then we’d go with no, probably not.
