Announcing their upcoming joint North American "Let Rock Rule
" tour, Slash
took the Whisky a Go Go stage to mark the occasion in an appropriate rocking manner.
But once the guys charged through "Mama Kin
," Joe Perry
kicked off the "Welcome to the Jungle
" riff, leading into one of the worst and most awkward live renditions of the classic track.
Apart from the band being disorganized, Steven Tyler
didn't exactly figure out the lyrics. So as Metal Sucks
guys point out, instead of the usual "Welcome to the jungle / We've got fun 'n' games / We got everything you want / Honey, we know the names"
verse, we got this:"Welcome to the jungle / Gunnasendee-ee / Whatchugottofeeluhmove / But you wanna go back with me"
But it was all good fun and hardly anyone was offended. So while we're at it, we might as well ask you this - is it worse than the infamous 2012 "Mickey Mouse
" performance by the Guns themselves? Check out the clips below and let us know, focus on the 28:50 mark in the first video.
Back to the tour, check out the full itinerary below.
