Turns out that Matt Pike isn’t the only hard rock/metal guitarist in love with Angry Birds. In fact, Slash is such an avid player that the creators hired him to record the theme song to the game’s new version of Angry Birds Space. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist even received his own Angry Birds avatar for his work. And let’s just say Slash looks cooler as an Angry Bird than he does as a Disney character.

Slash’s new theme song can be heard when you download or update the game. Video of Slash playing a snippet of the song and discussing how it came to be can be seen above.
