Not a big fan of the song, but guns really made it their own and spiced it up a bit. Axl's intensity is hard to ignore on that one.

Not a fan of James Brown really, but Guns do it fairly well. Axl sounds great on it.

Kinda shit, really doesn’t fit guns.

but they’ll play anything to avoid new music. Or very deep cuts.

play fuckin shotgun blues or back of bitch. 

8 cover songs in a set is waaaay too much

All things considered it was one of the weirder things of NITL, imo.  But I think it was chosen for the lyrics.  Axl Rose feels good.  So good in fact.  And its because he's got Slash back.  So thats pretty cool.

Thats a cool little something he?

I think GNR sucessfully turned it into a GNR song, it feels like GNR. My fav part of NITL.

Loved it.  Wish we had a soundboard copy of it to add to my current GnR playlist.

They do a damn job on that song. It's good to see Axl happy again and not always pissed off about his then-former band mates. You gotta think that Axl realizes he wasted way too much time not having Slash in the band and instead creating a mockery of the band.

It was a fun song to hear live from them, however the fact that it took the place of Whole Lotta Rosie would be the only downside to it.

dont like the GNA arrangements at all

when GNR rearranged KOHD it became a much better song

Now you listen to the Guns n Aliens version of I Feel Good and the arrangements dont do nothing for the song

groovless, lack of dynamics, flow, you name it, its all there, courtesy of Franky, Ricky and obviously Slash and Duff and the keyboarders

The only good thing about this GNA version is having Axl singing and Slash playing guitar. Axl is clearly into it and when Axl is into singing something, ANYTHNG, he is usually brilliant (the exceptions are obviously the horrendous clean-voice songs from his solo career, and the horrendous use of his horrendous clean voice on GNR songs, but that's a completely different and horrendous topic, isnt it)

White boy karaoke. You need ''maximum soul and Rn'B'' to carry off that I'm afraid.

Rosie would be a better choice. It' more guns n roses than I feel good. They'e played it from the club days

I had always assumed that they prepared it for The Apollo show, chickened out on playing it that night, played it subsequently because they prepared it, realized it was kinda silly outside of the context of The Apollo Theater, then stopped playing it. I enjoyed it about as much as I enjoy any new GN'R covers taking the place of deep cut originals, which is to say not much.

I am very happy that they did Rosie in San Antonio! Nice little surprise. :)

I thought it sounded great when I saw them play it at the Gorge. I remember I was buzy the night of the Forum concert so I kept checking setlist.fm for updates and somebody posted that they played it for a second and I got so excited, it's the only song I saw on the NITL tour that didn't end up on one of the Sirius XM shows.

Axl can rock any damn song!

My mom had a good friend in high school who just loved James Brown. She would put this record on and just scream at the top of her lungs! lol

James was one of a kind!

Cool!
