SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov 22, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Chinese Democracy has finally arrived. One of the most highly anticipated albums in rock history, Chinese Democracy will be in stores this Sunday, November 23rd. Guns N' Roses is ready to rock once again.

Chinese Democracy (Black Frog/Geffen Records) will be available on CD and vinyl (accompanied by a free digital download of the tracks) at Best Buy and Best Buy.com in the U.S., and digitally through iTunes.

For those who heard about Dr Pepper's offer to give each and every American a free can of soda if Chinese Democracy is released in 2008, Guns N' Roses wants to make sure every Guns N' Roses fan, and every other American, gets what was promised. The band is not involved in this promotion, but understood that every American (with a couple of exceptions) would get a free can of Dr Pepper. Apparently, only those who go to the soda company's Web site on Sunday, November 23 and sign up for a free 20 ounce soda coupon will get the free can. Guns N' Roses encourages all those interested to sign up for their coupon on Sunday, collect their drink and celebrate the release of Chinese Democracy!

Kaneda, do you think that you will win some sort of marketing award for this?

I'll be printing the coupon and keeping it, saving Dr. Pepper a few cents, but good to see the PR.

Sweet. Will the code have any special Guns N' Roses logo or anything on it? And if we use the coupon, do we get to keep it?

Dr. Pepper is probably wishing they didn't do this now that the economy is in the tank.

I was thinking the same thing. I was also wondering...didn't Axl say he would "share his Dr. Pepper" with Buckethead when the album came out?

The real question is...will Robin be excluded now too?

I could care less about marketing awards. One visit to a marketing awards show and you guys would care less too :) I don't think there's going to be any GNR logo on the coupon and I don't think you can keep the coupon after using it (because you could use it again and again). It's just really cool to see the band appreciate the mainstream publicity this promotion has provided. Tomorrow is going to be a glorious day indeed. Make sure you guys get your free one.

How will every member of my family get a coupon? Wouldn't the site prevent the IP address or something from trying to get another one?
