Pretty sure this can't possibly be the first time I've read a thread of yours about this specific song, Miser.

Nonetheless, I agree with you. It's a great track. I prefer the live version of The Blues above anything new GN'R has done, closely followed by TWAT, but Oh My God got a lot of hate - here and in 'the real world' - but funny enough it seems ever since the 'nuGNR' lineup dissolved and Robin left the band, people have started getting nostalgic for that lineup, and I have started to see waaaay more people praising this track in particular. I can't recall ever seeing a positive comment about this song for a long time here prior to Robin leaving and all that.

It's a good aggressive ditty. I play it at the gym a lot.

Crazy to think it's 13 years old, now, and still one of the relatively 'new' tracks from this band.

I honestly don't want gnr to release the new version. I like the old version alot and don't really want the song to end up getting messed up like the blues did. I really don't get why the public doesn't like OMG though. Axl say's it's just a demo, and if it is it's really good for a demo.

Definitely the most aggressive instrumental from the CD era that we've heard to date. Hope there is some more stuff in this vein in the vault that we get to hear at some point

One of my favorite songs by GNR, or any band for that matter.

It really puts together well the earlier GNR punk/hard rock sound into a more modern, industrial feel. The electronic intro with the band building up behind it, segueing into the guitar driven verses sounds like a remix of something with the feel of AFD "You're Crazy", then the chorus and bridge with the heavy drums and synth/keyboards.. Everything just fits perfectly.. and the lyrics are some of Axl's best I think. Unfortunately all these elements aren't picked up in the "End of Days" version, but the Rio recording does.

I wish this would get released somehow. If it doesn't turn up on a forthcoming album, but they want something to put out there in the meantime, they should release this online as a digital single. We are already familiar with it but I think people won't fully appreciate it until we hear it with proper production.

I'd like to hear the new version. During the soundcheck in Rio, the song seemed more catchy especially the chorus and looked like a strong hit. Also, the new bass line was awesome. I hope there will be a real solo, I could see some fretless guitar.

I would put the song on track number 2 on the next album.

The re-recorded version shouldn't be on the next album, but should be either a B-Side to a single, or part of a deluxe version of the next album. Ideally IMO the next album would be 12-16 tracks, with a deluxe version having 5-10 more songs (one or two covers, reworked OMG, perhaps some remixes).

What would be MOST ideal would be for the next album to be a double album. 30something songs. CD1 would be Bucket/Robin era stuff, CD2 would be the current band. Deluxe version with stuff like a reworked OMG, covers, remixes, etc.

Or you could release an album of the "CD Outtakes" this year or the next, and then an album by the current band later the same year or the next year.

Can't believe you guys.

OMG is a very weak song.
Silkworms is a piece of shit. It's not even worthy of a listen. It's just awful awful awful.
Rhiad - See Silkworms.

Best thing Axl has ever done? Are you fucking high?

I don't think OMG belongs in the same category as those others. Rhiad and Silky are not well put together songs.

OMG is has great lyrics and is unlike anything I've heard. That uniqueness deserves some credit.

I can agree that the lyrics are quite good.

But everything else in this song, from composition to production, is a mess.

It's not AS bad as Silk and Rhiad, but it's a weak song, not better than any song on AFD and maybe better than 2-3 songs on the Illusions. If the choice was up to me, I would even find it really hard to include it on CD.
People here are out of their minds saying it's the best GnR song ever.

Remember when we only had a live version of Chinese Democracy and everyone didn't think it was that great? Could be the same with Silkworms. Ya can't really bash a song 'till you've heard the studio version.

My opinion on CD hasn't changed between live and album versions.

If any, I think the live version of Shackler's is better than the album.

You can hear that Silkworms is just a terrible song. There's a reason they trashed it.
