Slash not only wanted to play some straight up rock and roll on this new album, he also wanted to prove a few points. This latest song, titled "Beneath The Savage Sun", has a poignant backstory worth paying attention to.

Not only is the song possessive of a good message, it actually rips. Slash's work on this track is simply sublime.

The song is about the poaching of elephants in the means of gathering ivory. It's a very real and large problem happening and Slash, along with singer Myles Kennedy, want to end it.
