Ouch. So is it safe to assume there will be no exclusive for CD2?

Why would that be?

I'm not sure if this is an Online Only offer or not, or if it's just for the week. I'll have to check the next time I work.

With that purchase, I've bought over 200 copies of Chinese Democracy.

And that's not even including the case I bought with some friends when the album came out.

Last time I was in Best Buy there were about 50 copies of Chinese Democracy just sitting there on the shelf. That's why they're doing this.

Yup.

But that's not their fault. Axl's done next to nothing to give them any sort of identities. Loosing guitarists every few years doesn't help either.

Stop answering my obvious troll !

I agree though, if CD was selling at regular price, it wouldn't be at 1.99 bucks now lol

Like...duh.

All I know is that band called GNR sold out most of the shows during the last world tour, that they are going to play in Rock in Rio in front of 200,000 people and they are the ones always in mind for this big event every fucking year...wonder why... :shrugs:

I was in a Best Buy last month, and they still were selling it, they had alot there too. Didn't see the price though.

Yeah, like there's gonna be a re-launch of an album selling $1.99. <_<

It's looking like theres more of a chance we will be hearing new music this year. CD now selling 1.99 isn't, at all, a good way to into a re-launch of the same album but with a few remix's and a new track, which people can get for free off of Youtube or torrent files. Also, with Rio being where that debut's some of the Illusion's and CD song's in '91, and '01, I have a feeling they may be redoing history, and it'll happen again.

Pretty smart idea, getting rid of all the left over stock.

I see big albums selling for next to nothing all the time, plus it's not exclusive to best buy anymore right.

Might pick up 3 or 4 sometime this week. My 2 copies are worn out

I still listen to around half of the album & think Axl did a good job. Best Buy bought enough copies for a GN'R album when infact it was an Axl Rose solo album which the American public realized. Doesn't surprise me it's going so cheap.

If Axl had promoted it, done a video or two then maybe it would of sold a little better.

I think one of the main reasons for lack of sales in the US was because Chinese Democracy failed to deliver a hit single. It's hard to believe that if Slash ,Izzy & Duff had been involved through out the making of CD that it would of been anything but a number 1 in the charts with singles in the top 10.

Just goes shows that what made GN'R great was not the name of the band, but the musicians in the band & the amazing chemistry they had together that pushed their music to another level.
