G'n'R Chinese Games

Old joke: What will come first? A new G'n'R album or Chinese democracy?
--------------
Apparently there is an answer: a new G'n'R album named "Chinese Democracy".

It seems Axl leaked his "Chinese Democracy" album before it went retail to gauge public opinion.
More Guns 'N' Roses tracks leaked

Three tracks from the long-awaited Guns 'N' Roses comeback album have been leaked onto the internet.

The songs allegedly from 'Chinese Democracy', the record which original band member Axl Rose has been working on for a decade, surfaced on the web last week.

You can have a listen right here if you like, to "The Blues" by G'n'R, which is apparently the biggest new track. Personally, I think they probably should have left this crap in the eighties where it belongs, but hey! You can't stop the Chinese.

Sounds pretty clunky. Axl's legacy with GNR includes the greatest power ballad ever (Estranged) and he probably should have left the matter at that.

Besides, cranked up zombie frontman Scott Weiland has already put a 21st century face on the band. Resurrecting Axl would seem to be a cruel gimmick at this point.

I think a "Battle of the Bands" is in order. Or maybe just a fist fight between Weiland and Rose.

I'm putting my money on Rose for sure. He'll bring Scott to his Na-na-na-na-na-knees.

---yeah, that was hella lame. whatev.
