A new video clip of a recent GUNS N’ ROSES concert has gone viral on TikTok, due to singer Axl Rose sounding more like the character of Herbert from Family Guy than his usual known scowling voice.
The performance in question took place on June 15 in Stavanger, Norway, as part of GUNS N’ ROSES’ current world tour, and according to TikTok user @norwegianknittingbee, it left many fans scratching their heads.
The TikTok user in question captured one particularly odd moment during the band’s performance of the classic “Welcome To The Jungle” which included the caption “well that was disappointing”.
Comments on the video began to flood in, with one user suggesting that Rose sounds a lot more like Herbert (nicknamed “Herbert the Pervert“) from the animated tv show Family Guy.
While a vast number of viewers made negative comments toward the singer, one user did point out that “You can’t expect a 60 year old to sound like he did when he was in his late twenties”.
In response, the video’s owner posted: “There is a big difference between expecting a concert like 30 years ago and what we got here. With tickets costing 100 Euros per ticket I expected more”, before adding on another comment, “This was their best song 😳😳😳 – even more down hill from there”.
Another user defended the band adding, “No Axl can’t sing. But you don’t go for Axl’s voice. You go because it’s guns n roses. It’s the history of the band and what they were.”
The video of the performance has already surpassed 2 million views across TikTok and has garnered 77.1K likes at the time of this article’s publishing.
