I like the live version with the chorus...

 

But seriously. If TB REALLY wanted to troll us all, they'd post a snippet of Slash playing "Silkworms".

 

Imagine what the forums would look like :lol:

The idea that they would just leave a completed album sitting there until late 2021/early 2022, because they are unable to tour, when Axl has never cared about promotion or doing things the normal way before, would be the biggest fuck you to the GNR fanbase in history. And we've received a lot of fuck you's.

I have from very unreliable sources that GNR will be partnering with a very prominent and esteemed American food chain to exclusively release the album domestically.

Yes, you heard it here first.  GNR will be domestically releasing their next album at Cracker Barrel restaurants throughout all 48 states! 

Unfortunately, as dining room areas are mostly closed, the big promotional push is waiting for things to return to normal.  In the mean-time the geniuses in the Cracker Barrel kitchen are cooking up some great cross promotional items to encourage additional sales AND are soliciting feedback for ideas!!!

If there is enough vault stuff with lyrics for a full album without it, then no, Silkworms should not be included. Axl said in the chats that he removed the chorus which was the best part, so I'm not really interested that much.

The chorus was the best part.

Shotgun Blues is simple as fuck but at least Axl spits some venom. And one of my favourite lines: “you think anyone with an IQ over 15 would believe your shit?” 😂

Axl also utilizes about 4 different voices in the song, so vocally its unique.

To be honest I'd rather listen to Silkworms than Shotgun Blues. Shotgun Blues is song I want to like but have always found it to be a bit "meh" on relistens.

Silkworms at least makes me laugh. :lol:

I swear i must be The only person who likes silkworms 😂

 

I've always liked it, lyrics are obviously a bit silly but otherwise it works and I honestly don't understand why people hate it. There are many GNR-songs which are worse than Silkworms.

I think Silkworms is hilarious. I love that he put Stephanie's picture up during the song. It needed to be longer 😂. I just hope the Stephanie era is over now that Slash is back to tell Axl to stop being angsty.

I absolutely reject this comparison - Shotgun Blues is a killer rocker, damn it!

Anyway, I don't think Silkworms should be included in any official releases any time soon. It would be stupid to include that but not OMG. 

Haha Shotgun Blues just was one of those GNR songs where I only listen to it when I listen to the Illusion albums in full and am too much of a completist to skip it, otherwise it is the one GNR track that I say "meh" and forget entirely lol

I'm not sure Silkworms would work with the current line-up. Melissa is a terrific singer but what's her towel waving like?

I don't think towel waving is her strong point. She might need to bust out some Suicide Girls type of stuff to distract from the lack of towel waving ability. (yes they toured with GNR at the Chinese Democracy High Point and came out between GNR Songs)

Oh well, I've already noticed I'm in a dire minority on this forum regarding Shotgun Blues. I'm a rebel!
