Guns N’ Roses latest installment of their "Not In This Lifetime Selects" YouTube series is a special one. The nearly 32-minute long video, which shares professionally filmed footage from the band's performance at last year's Exit 111 festival, includes the band's cover of Soundgarden's iconic "Black Hole Sun," along with “Live and Let Die”, “Shadow of Your Love”, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, and “Paradise City."

The "Not In This Lifetime Selects" series highlights performances from the band's tour of the same name. GN’R started playing “Black Hole Sun” during that tour in honor of Soundgarden's late frontman Chris Cornell after his tragic death on May 18, 2017. They first covered it live on May 27, 2017 at Slane Castle in Ireland.

Watch the full video below and look out for "Black Hole Sun" around the 6:26 mark.

Before he passed, Cornell showed his admiration for GN'R by recording a cover of their 1989 hit "Patience." Over the summer, his estate officially released it. The song is also featured on Cornell's new posthumous covers album No One Sings Like You Anymore.

As for when we can expect new GN'R material, Slash recently revealed that he hopes they'll release something next year.
