Thor: Love and Thunder is, together with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Marvel film that marked 2022. A movie liked by adults and young people, with an exciting plot, an intelligent, open-end that hints at the next chapter of the saga, and a soundtrack that draws with determination from the great rock classics. Among the songs that stand out in the film, there is one song, in particular, the one in the first battle of Thor, which is well known to the older generations, while it could be a discovery for the young viewers. Let’s find it out in this article.

The original movie trailer is available on Youtube.

What is the song from the first battle in Thor: Love and Thunder?

The song used in the first battle scene of Thor: Love and Thunder is Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N’ Roses. You can find the official video of the song below.

Guns N’ Roses released Welcome To The Jungle in 1987 as the second single of what was Guns N ‘Roses’ first-ever album, Appetite For Destruction. The song undoubtedly brought them to the Olympus of Rock, from which they have never yet gotten off. Chosen in 2009 as the best Hard Rock song by the VH1 television network, it is also among the best 500 Rock songs by Rolling Stones magazine.

The song was born to describe the Los Angeles of the 80s, precisely a real jungle. Axl Rose was the victim of a street robbery and, right after that, he heard the criminal shouting at him:

“You know where you are? You are in the jungle … you’re gonna die! “

Guns N’ Roses wrote the song to describe the wildest soul thanks to its strident groove and the staid rhythm that leaves no way out.

What are the rock classics in the Thor: Love and Thunder soundtrack?

Welcome to the Jungle is just the first of many rock classics we can hear while watching Thor: Love and Thunder. In the rest of the film, Guns N ‘Roses return three more times, with the other two great singles from Appetite For Destruction, Paradise City, and Sweet Child O’ Mine, and in the final battle with Gorr, under the notes of November Rain. The credits instead were entrusted to Rainbow in the Dark, the 1983 song by Ronnie James Dio.

A small detail for those who didn’t notice: one of the characters of Thor: Love and Thunder, the kid named Axl, picks this name just in honor of Axl Rose.

Welcome To The Jungle: the complete lyrics

Welcome to the jungle
We’ve got fun n’ games
We got everything you want
Honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey
We got your disease

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it you’re gonna bleed
But it’s the price you pay
And you’re a very sexy girl
That’s very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights
But you won’t get them for free

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
I, I wanna hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the jungle where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see
You’ll take it eventually
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

And when you’re high you never
Ever want to come down, YEAH!

You know where you are
You’re in the jungle baby
You’re gonna die

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
knees, knees

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
knees, knees…
