Ever wonder what it would sound like to hear Tom Cruise belt out the Guns N' Roses classic "Paradise City"? Well, you won't have to wait much longer: That track opens up the "Rock of Ages" soundtrack, which drops June 5. In addition to "Paradise City," the star will also put his spin on a number of other rock classics, both solo and alongside the cast's other A-listers. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cruise is featured on Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive," Foreigner's classic "I Want to Know What Love Is," Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me," Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again," Poison's "Every Rose Has its Thorn," Scorpions' "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'."
"We have definitely never seen him do this before. A lot of the joy in this for him was just the adventure of trying something that was so foreign," Shankman explained to MTV News about Cruise's part in the film, which opens June 15. "I think part of the reason that he said 'Yes' to doing it was that he was so stunned that he was asked, and he thought, 'Oh my god, of all the millions of things I've done in my career, nothing has ever been like this.' He's a guy who loves challenges."
