Yeah - we were talking on another thread where MetallicA at worst is never lower than 7/10 which is quite something . GNR definitely varies from brilliant (Houston) to really bad (Hershey/Berlin) 🤣

I went to like 5 shows and they were great always. The sms thing was My only complain. I went to 4 GNR reunion shows and were great to. Got to Say that

I get that many of you are excited for this, but I’d like you all to remember your feelings towards shadow of your love in 2018 when they called it a “new” song. I remember how angry a lot of you were then, that are happy and satisfied with this now. We have waited 13 years to even hear a glimpse of something new, and they dust off a song that was played live already in 2001, and they call it the first new song. You can make the case that this would be the same way if they played hard skool Instead but my counter argument is, hard skool was never played live before, and never heard unless you’re a diehard that got ahold of the leaks. If you had directv in 2001, you already heard Absurd 20 years ago. I guess there’s not much point to this rant other than I’m disgusted that this is what I waited 13 years for..... silkworms

Dude, just be happy they changed it up, played something wild that we never would have guessed. It's, what, a three minute song? It looks like they had a blast playing it too. And people should be happy that they're finally mixing it up and actually played, not an old song, but a previously unreleased song as well. And more to come. 

Shadow of Your Love was a cool addition as well.

At least they have scaled back the chinese democracy songs on this tour compared to previous.  But then again those songs gave everyone a chance to go take a piss break or get more beer.  But the absurd song is horrible.  How bout play some Slash's snakepit instead?!

Beggars and Hangers On would be quality 👍

I wonder if they will not play it again for more 20 years and then rename it one more time with the new title "Listen motherfuckers".

Best song title ever! :lol:

The crazy thing is that they branded it as a new song.. They know it is going to get a lot of attention.. Why in the hell would they pick a song that is almost unanimously disliked by everyone?

They were trolling with us... Before the song he said "and they don't Even know the joke yet"

Omfg with you people. It’s hard rocker song, and they fucking killed it. Can you not appreciate the enormous value of playing what Axl intended. And that hasn’t changed ever. If they played this song it this is all on Axl final decision. and also the fact that makes you trip regarding the history of that song specifically for GNR as a whole. The wheels are in motion finally.

Did you read a different board on accident? This forum has been largely positive all day.

Yes, because before he said "it's absurd for us to try this". That was the joke. But, yes. Regardless. They have to be trolling.

All things considered i'm gratefull they did this.... I'm tired of coming here just to hate. Today was a fun day in the forum.. i love You all guys! 

Listen to Rocket Queen from Fenway park. You'll remember why this band is such a fucking train wreck live. Axl sounds like utter, utter shit. The more things change... throwing a shitty remake of a shitty song does not do much for their cred at this point. $la$h should be fucking embarrassed by Absurd.

The greater majority of posts today have been wildly positive about the future. Many don't like the song and never have, but love the fact that GN'R did something completely spontaneous

You want us to appreciate Silkworms and cream our pants over it? Are you serious? A song that was shitty in 2001 and is just as, if not more shitty now. The song that was so shitty it was left off of Chinese Democracy, which was full of shitty songs.

Just because the band has given us something different, it doesn't mean it's good or welcome.

What bright side?  Do you not hear how "absurd" that sounds. Silkworms is the bright side we've been wanting for 5 years? Demand better from this band.  They have the ability to deliver something better, they just don't have the desire. This is such a piss take and middle finger to the fans and yet people are still cheering for more. Forgive me if thinking Silkworms is shit makes me a bad fan. I saw them in 2016. The only things to have changed since then are Axl sounding worse, if that's even possible, a 1991 b-side and a dreadful VR cover.  You can only allow yourself to be let down so many times before you can't blame the person letting you down.

I think the mid-section would sound a lot better if Melissa sang the falsetto thing instead of Axl.

They messed up that part. If you notice, the acapella instrumental starts, and Axl doesn't sing, then frank pounds his drums to start the heavy pounding, but Axl comes in late and starts to sing, so the acapella goes a bit further and then Frank finally pounds it again and it goes heavy again. If you haven't noticed, take a listen again, it's a bit funny! lol

A surprise for sure, but a welcome one! I honestly loved this! I've always been a fan of the remix version of Silkworms. 

That being said this seriously felt like Axl wanted to troll with the fans again. Kinda like back in the day with his sausage tweets. He knows that Silkworms isn't the most beloves GNR song. That made this so funny.

But I love the energy of this song and I hope that it stays in the setlist.

Most of all I hope that they start playing other unreleased GNR too. If Silkworms was all we got, then this would be absurdly disappointing.

But I'm very sure that they will play other unreleased GNR songs on this tour too. Hardschool is very likely, but hopefully something else too.

Not a classic, but a cool song and I'd be happy to have it on a new album.

I feel the same way.

I was pretty excited about SOYL, esp since it was a new recording. Then they started playing it live too which was cool.

1 hour ago, youngswedishvinyl said:

I do agree with you on a lot of points here, the difference though is that SOYL was officially released in 1992 and it was played to promote the reissue of AFD. Silkworms was never officially released and it returns now under a new title with nothing else but a potential forthcoming album to promote.

Is Absurd a new song? No, it was played 20 years ago. But that was the case for Don't Cry, Back Off Bitch and Perfect Crime as well, although that was only five years prior to release. :)

Yes true, they just waited longer to bring it out.

They could bring out Gilby and do Monkey Chow. Or something from ALG would work for Axl's voice.

100%, I think we're excited mostly because they did something different.

I think hard school will be played but don’t hold your breath for anything else, I’m sure if it was going to be played this tour it’d already be under alts on the setlist
