Chinese Democracy Cover Meaning...?


Recommended Posts

Guns N' Roses was here??

Appetite for Democracy or Chinese Destruction??

Hungry monster or fed up Basket Case??

The inhability to move forward...

To work freely...

Into a closed street??

From Freedom...

To Hapiness...

There's so much Weight...

Colors fade away...

When you can't ride...

You take a walk...

But with emptiness ahead...

And all those things behind...

You're stuck in past...

While on present glued to ground...

Chinese Democracy...

Like the godfather in disguise...

To blame those who care...

Is to blame those who taught...

To be known where you are...

Or for heal some more scars...

All of the artwork in all versions of the album just seem like a collage of images that Axl liked and wanted to throw together :lol: I'd love to know the symbolism behind all the tiny baby things clinging on to the big red hands and star though

The Guns N' Roses text was spray painted in Kowloon Alley in Hong Kong, China.

This means someone potentially risked their life to spray paint their love for Guns N' Roses inside a slum of a city that is rapidly falling apart in a country ruled by a ruthless dictator.

The odds that someone found this graffiti is pretty rare in and of itself, it's almost miraculous. 

 

Not if it was in Hong Kong. ''One country, two systems''. (Even less so if it was Hong Kong before 1997).

You know good and well no one risked their lives spray painting GnR on the wall:rofl-lol:

I always thought of the cover in it's simplicity, that old broken down bike and it's oversized basket is a very common scene in parts of impoverished communist China. With the words Guns N Roses sprawled on the wall meaning the music is bigger than circumstance.

Too deep? :P
