    Axl Rose releases Chinese Democracy in 2008.

    Only two people in the country are excluded from the promotion...Slash and Buckethead. :lol  Nice.

    I'm still not 100% sure this is legit, but it is on CNN. If it is, it's BRILLIANT marketing. Either way, I bet Snopes is working diligently on the answer as we speak. This only started flowing across the internet today.

    True. Although, Obvious bringing actual democracy to actual China, armed with nothing but a box and a knife, is probably a more likely occurence than what Dr. Pepper is asking.

    That is true. Although, I would get Axl hopped up on whatever pilss he is popping these days and set him loose in the capital with a box and knife and see what happens. I say 50/50 chance democracy breaks out.

    I love GNR. And, honestly, I had to stop and think a second because the thread title was, uhhh, weird at first glance...

    4. Look up communism. And end it.

    5. Spam Shane's Funnies with "300" qoutes.

    Meh, not a fan of Dr. Pepper. I may take a sip if it's free but I doubt I'll like it. And, mark my words, that album will only come out when people don't longer care for its existence.

    That's the funniest thing I have read all day :lolol 

    But yeah, forget about GnR. Let's face it, even if it did come out it would probably suck huge balls (llamatron?). it wouldn't be the same GnR we all love and Guitar Hero too.

    Press Release from Axl Regarding Dr Pepper

    We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr Pepper with our album "Chinese Democracy," as for us, this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others, we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead's performances are on our album, I'll share my Dr Pepper with him.

    Axl Rose
