Did you hear any Kurt Cobain / Nirvana influences in Chinese Democracy?

Axl deliberately wanted the drums on the title track to sound like the drums on "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

I've read that too.

I'd say that song - the main riff and the main beat - much more closely resembles "Drain You". Same rhythm and feel but different progression.

"The first task set to [Zutaut] by [Axl] was to help with the drum sound for the album's title track.Axl had told the studio guys that he wanted the same drum sound as Dave Grohl on Nirvana'sSmells Like Teen Spirit. The production crew would claim they had it, but Axl wouldn't besatisfied." (Classic Rock, 04/08)

Before the song got fucked up, the title track was grungey. Listen to the 2001/2002 live versions.

Yeah. The RIO III version sounds like GNR covering Nirvana with a bit of NIN thrown in. It's most notable in the drumming and the guitar during the chorus.
