    Oklahoma City Bombing happened in April 1995, friend

    So you're saying Axl waited 3-4 years to write an instrumental song about it?


    I hope you’re just playing because you know shit about doing a record i guess. Just bcause the INSTRUMENTAL is called that way, doesnt mean the lyrics are about that as Axl himself said it was renamed to Berlin, as with lyrics.

    Also Shacklers was named by Buckethead, Brain and Scaturro in Giant Robot, then used in guns, whose lyrics are about Another shooting else Axl liked years after.

    Had to be Mr. Nice Guy then - it was released 1/31/1997 worldwide


    So they probably recorded Hard School for it, but Axl pulled the song after Slash quit in October 1996

    EDIT: I just pulled up Mr. Nice Guy on a bootleg site and the end credits are almost EXACTLY 4:12 long, which is the same length as Hard School!

    Obsessed in seeing what isnt there, oh my

    Axl was in the middle of recording vocals for the new album when Slash quit in October 1996

    Then slash used songs for that album in Snakepit so Axl was angry about that.

    Axl wanted the new band to feel their own and have an unique voice, its been documented as hell. He said that Madagascar was the first song he wrote vocals and sang in studio since Sympathy at least, documented by himself and Pitman.

    So what's the story behind Shankler's? Or is it Shackler's? This version is a completely different song. Are we to believe Bumble totally reworked it keeping some ideas to produce what ended up being released? Seems so to me ... 

    More like Axl loved the instrumenal, got Robin Finck to write the chorus (he's credited) and Caram and Eric Caudeux got credit for editing the song into a cohesive song. Brain and Pete Scaturro got credits because this is a song from Brain/Buckethead/Scaturro band Giant Robot, same as Sorry.

    We're actually not sure yet if Hardschool was actually a song that GnR was working on in 95-96 based on the Jackie Chan name they gave it and Duff saying they were  working on a song for an upcoming Jackie Chan move in 96. Would make sense why they brought this into the alt setlist as it may actually be a Slash/Duff song to begin with.

    I dont think it was a Slash&Duff composition. I mean that time Axl was trying to distance himself so far from that guys musically speaking
