  1. Looks like the announcement was just something to do with the 40th anniversary of Highway to Hell. Nothing was said today about a new album or tour... bummer...
  2. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    True, but the movie sold itself as the real story, when it was FAR from it!
  3. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    Yeah. Too bad that movie was shit though.
  4. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    I actually just checked the stats and it turns out that Numb by Linkin Park already crossed a billion, and Bohemian Rhapsody is just a few more clicks away from doing so as well. SCOM is right below those, but there are others like Teen Spirit and Zombie by The Cranberries that are not too far behind. Either way, GnR is still the only band to have more than one song in the top five, so that’s still cool!
  5. SCOM is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube

    Even Axl says he hates the edit and that he only agreed to it cause the record label insisted on it. on topic; November Rain was the first video of the whole rock genre to cross a billion clicks on YouTube, correct? So would that make SCOM the second? If so, that’s pretty cool that the top two most viewed music videos of the rock genre on YouTube are both GnR songs.
  6. I coulda sworn the AFDem dvd (recorded in 2012) also has shitty backing tracks, but maybe those were added after? Idk.
  7. Bill and Ted 3

    Damn! Didn’t expect Keanu to go clean shaven for this! Nice to see the phone booth again.... looking forward to seeing how this turns out!
  8. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Oh yeah. Good point.
  9. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Oh yeah Get In The Ring alone may be enough for Axl to not wanna ever do anything with the UYI albums. I kinda remember him saying on That Metal Show in 2011 that he regretted doing that song.
  10. Adler's Appetite - You Could Be Mine [Great vocals]

    This new line-up is awesome! Hope I get to see them live someday.
  11. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    The ChiDem engineer from the late 90s said that Axl forced them to erase the 1994 tape of TIL, so that one is out of the equation.
  12. If the new pinball machine really is anything like the NITL lithos, expect lots and lots of skeletons! XD
  13. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    I’d also be down for updated takes on Too Much Too Soon, and maybe even Sentimental Movie.... Probably not It Tastes Good, Don’t It... if they really do ever do a reissue of UYI, I’d hope they include The Rumbo Tapes in full, actually. I really like those versions of The Garden, Don’t Cry, Yesterdays, Bad Obsession, and Back Off, Bitch.
  14. Why still call the tour NITL if it’s supposed to be related now to UYI then?
  15. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Yeah, another personal issue with UYI that Axl probably has is the fact that it was around the same time that GnR were starting to seem like a joke in the wake of Kurt Cobain and grunge and all that. I once read that “Nirvana did to GnR what GnR did to all of the glam and hair metal bands... made them look silly...”
  16. Come to think of it, I remember now how some of the shirts sold during the NITL tour had an AFD cross that was edited so that only Axl, Slash, and Duff were on it, with Axl moved to Izzy’s position, Slash to Steven’s, and a bullet logo in the center, with a skeleton hand giving the middle finger at the bottom. So, if there was a cross on the new pinball machine, it would probably just be that. in short... yeah, I think you’re right.
  17. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    It’s arguably my favorite era too for most of the same reasons you mentioned above, but we must also remember that Axl probably went through a lot personally during that whole time period (Erin, Steph, Alan Niven, Steven, Izzy, Goldstein, all the drugs during the tour, Slash and Duff being off the rails drug-wise, the riots and rants and late starts, etc.). So he probably thinks of THAT stuff more than he thinks about the “surface level” stuff (like the tour itself or album itself) when it comes to UYI.
  18. We mustn’t forget about Fortus and Reed; GnR’s most important members besides Frank and Melissa.
  19. The Rio Times is also saying that the band’s Lollapalooza shows in South America early next year could be “UYI-centric” or some shit like that. I think someone from Argentina on one of these forums said they heard the same thing on their local radio news. Could all be just bullshit, tho. Would love if the new pinball machine was NITL-centric, rather than being UYI-centric. Maybe they can include an updated skull cross with the NITL lineup! Like how the old pinball machine had an updated skull cross with the UYI lineup.
  20. Thanks for clarifying!
  21. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    Awesome to see a bunch of youngsters on here showing their love for GNR!
  22. Oh yeah I always wondered why Jungle sounded different on the pinball machine. Did they seriously re-record that one from scratch? If so, why not also redo Paradise City?
  23. UYI - Boxset (wishlist)

    All of these ideas are making me think they should do multiple releases: 2021: UYI two-disc deluxe edition (both albums remastered), and five-disc super deluxe edition (both albums remastered, the “dry” mixes of each album, and a bonus disc of rarities and demos). 2023/2024: Perfect Crime doc with hours worth of deleted scenes on the Blu-Ray as “bonus features” and a streaming service set up with the pro-shots of each show.
  24. Brian Johnson confirms new album

    Maybe I’m just stupid, but I can’t tell if this is supposed to be a blowjob joke or not.
