Slash Pens Theme for ‘Angry Birds Space’

In addition to being a guitar god for myriad bands, a horror flick producer, and the most famous top hat wearer since Lincoln, Slash is also a wicked Angry Birds fan.

Because he’s been a serious fanboy since 2010, Slash was all about helping out with the latest version of the game.

He told RollingStone: "When [creator] Rovio approached me about actually playing my own take on the Angry Birds theme, it went back and forth a few times between the actual Angry Birds theme note-for-note . . . and then they asked for something a little bit different.”

He was able to perfect the ditty while working on it at hotel rooms between shows. You can hear Slash’s take on the song that never seems to leave your head in the newest update for the game app.

There is also now a Slash Angry Birds avatar complete with top hat and signature Les Paul. Now that’s rock ‘n’ Roll.
