In T2, young John discovers that the old-model terminator who saves his life is programmed to follow orders from John Connor; he uses this handy fact to force the terminator to spring his mom from the insane asylum.
In T2, he stalks naked into a biker bar, terrorizes the pool players, and emerges once again leather-clad, with the soundtrack playing George Thurgood's 'B-b-b-bad to the bone'.
The theme music for the film is again the original theme written by Brad Fiedel, but the movie didn't have a song tie in that was as successful as You Could Be Mine was for T2.
At the time, T2 was the most expensive movie ever made, a record director James Cameron would himself break six years later with the 200 million dollar budget on Titanic.
T2 begins with Sarah locked up in a high-security mental institution for the criminally insane, and her ten-year-old son John (Edward Furlong) living in foster care.
This symbiotic relationship between the song and the film proved to be beneficial to both Guns N' Roses and T2 as both enjoyed immense commercial success in 1991.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day - Released in 1991, T2, as it is known among fans, was another smash success for James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The second movie, also called T2, or Terminator 2: Judgment Day, actually deals with an issue that other similar stories gloss over.
This phrase would be echoed with an unusual twist in T2 (Terminator 2), the sequel that was made seven years after The Terminator.
The song You Could Be Mine appeared in an action sequence in T2 and also was played during the closing credits.
