    Such potential! I'm starting to wonder though if this is correct order of how the song is arranged. The edits are too crude to be professional and the way it jumps makes me think sections have been moved or removed prior to the leak. It wouldn't surprise me if the actual song, if ever released, is longer and there are missing parts are being withheld by the leakers.

    I hear what you are saying, and feels a bit disjointed, but I still love it.  Then again, the beginning of Hardschool feels the same way.  This is the correct length according to the tracking listing photo that was leaked last week.

    It wasn't a drum machine loop? And it definitely isn't a 'ska section' either (as I've seen suprisingly many people refer to it) - it's a disco beat/guitar riff, just like on the released version.

    It is. The leaked OMG is a VERY rough mix that is nowhere near finished. Comments to the contrary are just about personal preference with regards to it being more stripped-down (nothing wrong with that btw). Axl himself said it was a re-record that wasn't taken too seriously.

    Speaking of relying on older material, I wonder if that new rumor is true that there will be like four or five new studio songs lumped with an NITL live album at the end of this year. Would sorta fit with the “EP at the end of the year” rumor from earlier. If that ends up being true, it would mean that the band and/or label feels more comfortable releasing this new stuff alongside Jungle, Sweet Child, and Paradise City.

    Could the EP rumour fit in with Terminator movie soundtrack song?

    The soundtrack version is just a demo that the label forced out as a means of showing everyone “hey people, GnR still exists!”

    there is a higher-quality version with some extra effects, a new lead guitar track from bumble, and a “stripped down” bridge where axl’s vocals are just over a drum machine loop and nothing else. It leaked last year.

    Thanks.  I thought the OMG version leaked in 2018 was poorer quality than the original demo.

    I personally prefer the old-GNR-esque heavy start to The Blues!  And never was fond of Ron's solo on Riad, and like the beefed up CD from this leak more than the final version

    Different strokes for different folks for sure, but these songs groove way way harder with the drums higher in the mix, the guitars beefed up, and the layers not existing yet

    Totally agree, was thinking the same way

    I seem to remember reading that at the Hong Kong show in 2002 they put the album artwork up on the screens during Chinese Democracy, and that it was a picture of a bicycle. So I'm not sure if it's the same as the final artwork, but it sounds like it was more or less the same concept. 

    Wow, didnt know that.  What was the picture of Asian man tying a head scaff around his forehead?

    Before the bicycle photo was taken at Hong Kong 2002? Probably this (first image of the article):


    That's the image I was thinking of, thanks

    I think its clear any other all "new" songs sans Atlas and AfD99 are unfortunatly off the table at this point... At least for a long time.

    So, Id like 1999 Silkworms and Atlas at this point tonight. The rumored 1999 Shacklers would be killer too. Was there a 99 Better?

    Thatd pretty much be the entire 1999 album.

    Two things, didnt know Shacklers was that old, and what is the earliest Better version we have?

    Fucking awesome. I stand by my claim - had this been released in 2000 it'd been HUGE. 

    Agreed.  Who ever decided not to release the supposedly 99/2000 '2000 intentions' album, were idiots and didn't know what they were doing............Hardschool is hot and would be been perfect alongside OMG and the other '99' demos we have.

    some user DM'd me with a link to the forums this was posted on before it went widespread and i anounced it was out on discord, i cant believe nobody noticed this for an hour. quick, everyone go check dead/quiet gnr forums for other songs. this one came from gnrevo from a user who created an account just to post the link.

    Someone suggested the leak came from gnr camp to drum up publicity.  do we know who leaked?

    I basically think most non-USA countries would laugh their heads off if a millionaire American rockstar tried to prod them into activity about some missing demos for an album nobody cared about at the time, and few care about today. In my area I don't see a policeman if there has been a murder or a rape so I doubt they'll get their act together if some spotty nerd starts leaking ''Silk Worm #12'' on his computer. The whole thing would probably be lost in an international maze of red tape and nonsense before the person was identified, and certainly before it reached legal proceedings.

    So true, finally some common-sense perspective.  LEAK LEAK LEAK LEAK
