Ok, I have one question for the GN'R experts here... i.e. @Blackstar or anyone who knows the answer, actually -_-

That song "The Reason" by The Hoobastank just came up on the radio and I couldn't help remembering that Axl thanked them on CD liner notes :facepalm: so I was wondering if any of you know why is he such a fan of these one hit wonders? :question:

Because that's the only song I know by them but somehow I remember Axl wanted this band to open for nuGN'R back in 2000 or 2001, not sure.

The lyrics to "The Reason" ring a bell to me on why he may like that song, but so much to the point of being a fan? really? What other cool songs do they have or am I missing an amazing band and I'm just being a jerk to them? :ph34r:

I'm not a perfect person
There's many thing I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That's why I need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

And the reason is you
And the reason is you
And the reason is you

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you


Is this for Erin or Stephanie? :P

Why They put the couch N' table on stage?:question:

THat was the Skin N' Bones leg of the Illusions tour. They did have the couch onstage for the acoustic songs they did - four or five of them IIRC. They did that at the show I attended. :D

There wasn't any news about Axl and Hoobastank other than him wanting them on tour but they're not one hit wonders, they've got 10 albums out and they sold a lot, wiki tells me they sold more than 10 millions album worldwide and i'd catch them on rock radio stations from time to time, they aren't mindblowing to me but they have a very respectable carrier so i'm not surprised Axl could like them.

I only know that one very popular song but I had no idea they were a big respectable band. Sound pretty poppish utterly commercial to me.... :shrugs:

I... had no idea Axl was into Hoobastank. I never even noticed him thanking them in the CD liner notes (wtf?).

Tbh, I don't know what to think about it. I like that song (The Reason), but like you, I always thought they were just a one hit wonder as well. Never heard anything else by them and didn't know they released 10 albums lol.

I can see how Axl might relate to these lyrics though. Unpopular opinion: The chorus is about Beta/TB and the rest of the lyrics are about Erin, Slash, etc. :P

Yeah, go check your album booklet, they are there and I always gave a WTF to that.

Would love to know what is that Axl likes so much about them to the point of being a fan. According to MY wikipedia :P they released 5 albums (not 10), most of them in the early 2000's and last one in 2012. But they did sell 10 million albums.... well, I guess they came out still during a time when albums could be sold that easily. And they apparently are more of a post-grunge, nu metal band, in the same line as Linkin' Park (now that makes sense as to why Axl was into them).

Here are other popular songs (that I never listened to) with lyrics that remind me of the things that ended up in Chinese Democracy:

Crawling In The Dark

I will dedicate and sacrifice my every-thing
For just a seconds worth of how my story's ending
And I wish I could know if the directions that I take
And all the choices that I make won't end up all for nothing

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what I've been handed?

I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

Help me carry on
Assure me it's ok to
Use my heart and not my eyes
To navigate the darkness

Will the ending be
Ever coming suddenly?
Will I ever get to see
The ending to my story?

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what I've been handed?
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

So when and how will I know?

How much further do I have to go? (have to go)
And how much longer until I finally know? (finally know)

Cause I am looking and I just can't see what's in front of me
In front of me
Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is there something more
Than what I've been handed?
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer


Running Away

I don't want you to give it all up
And leave your own life collecting dust
And I don't want you to feel sorry for me
You never gave us a chance to be

And I don't need you to be by my side
And tell me that everything's all right
I just wanted you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

I did enough to show you that I
Was willing to give and sacrifice
And I was the one who was lifting you up
When you thought your life had had enough
And when I get close you turn away,
There's nothing that I can do or say
So now I need you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

Is it me? Is it you?
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind

Is it me? Is it you?
Nothing that I can do
Is it a waste of time?

Is it me? Is it you?
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
(what is it I have to say?)
So why are you running away?
(to make you admit you're afraid)
Why are you running away?

Most likely their inclusion in the "thank you" liner notes doesn't have anything to do with this particular song (it's not improbable, though). They may have had only one song that can be called a "hit", but as @giuls said, they have had a relatively notable career (4-5 albums) and they were hyped as a good new rock L.A. band (I don't know why, from the songs I've heard there isn't anything special about them -and I find them rather boring), so maybe Axl just liked them. Or maybe it's because they have referenced GnR as one of their influences and they have covered Civil War.

They had also toured with Velvet Revolver and it seems that they didn't get along with Scott Weiland (they even wrote a song about that):

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/hoobastank-singer-slams-velvet-revolver/

so maybe this is why Axl appreciated them and @Andy14 is right, it was about Slash again :lol:

:rofl-lol::rofl-lol::rofl-lol:

Yes, yes, clearly @Andy14 was right once again :lol:

Seriously though, Axl would probably like them on principle just for talking shit about VR/Scott. He's pity like that :P

By the way, Erin's Instagram account has suddenly disappeared. Instagram says '' The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.'' :question:

@Andy14 will have to face me and respond some questions tomorrow :max:

-----

According to Blabbermouth, Hoobastank were approached by "Axl's people" in 2002 to open for nuGN'R, and the Hoobastank talking shit about VR/Scott was in 2005.

He likes them because he likes shitty music too. Months ago I listened to something he said he was listening to, in the 80's, and it was utter shit so... :tongue2:

All those lyrics make sense to me, with the timing of things going on, from 1998 until 2006, Axl was not in his best state of mind. Cancelled tours, the new lineup not well received and other problems. He was depressed and lost in how to carry on with his life and band.

I still can see her Instagram, but she appears to have removed anything on it that was in anyway able to be associated with Axl. Even her Slash pics :wacko:

oh yeah I noticed that yesterday or the day before...

Maybe it is better for her or something bad is going on :shrugs:

Axl's Wikipedia profile has been heavily edited and his marital status was wiped out, along with a lot of other information there was there before :rolleyes:

Also, Amy Bailey was promoted to "sister", while Stewart remains a "half-brother" :ph34r:

I dunno, but I commented on the AXL/DC thread that Axl was looking a little worn last night, he looked to me as if something is niggling him. Probably me imagining things :shrugs:

Perhaps Erin removed those posts because I had a look not long ago and like you say, biscuits, biscuits everywhere!
