ABSUЯD Single released at midnight


Recommended Posts

Dont bands normaly want to release good songs as singles? An updated O my god would have been better than this shite, i really dont hold out much hope that a new album will be good, none of the leaks were that great, although some could be not bad if re done

I agree totally......but to say "GNR was never a band that was gonna do the same thing over and over again" is a bit much. They're been doing the same thing over and over again for years now! Hence why most of us slipped into a catatonic daze. 

Sorry I meant strictly from a creative, music standpoint. I realize, that this is a band that has been touring the same music and songs since 2008, lol.

Considering the unpredictability of GnR, do you think it's possible that after releasing Absurd, they could release HS in the first concerts of the next leg, like Mexico or Australia?

Thank you.

Oh My God or Hard School - absolutely.

Why do you guys suddenly believe this hints a new album and SOYL didn't? What has changed? Same situation (touring, same songs), same non-promoted single (no video). I mean, I love the current excitement and definitely wish this means something, but there's not much evidence that this is different from a few years ago. 

SOYL was clearly just promotion for the AFD boxset. Absurd has zero to do with UYI, so the only conclusions are 1. They are releasing one single song for the tour. 2. They are ready to release a new album.

Either way it has a lot of eyes and ears back on gnr.

Haha - yeah I know what you meant! I just couldn't resist saying it! 

I think there is a huge amount of people of the 'classic rock fan' type who have adopted GNR into that genre largely due to their inability to release anything new, when really they were always not that sort of thing.

What’s your verdict on it mate? 

I listen to all the leaks fairly regularly except Silkworms because I always hated it especially the line "pussy full of maggots" if I think of pussy as in vagina. Pussy meaning a bitch, however, doesn't bother me.

I sound like an English Literature professor, eh? :lol:

Love the production/sound. It's a fun little song.

Yes, I forgot the boxset. Still, as a promotion to a new album, this doesn't make too much sense. Hard School would.

The fans who strictly like afd/uyi are probably going to get a few more surprises I feel robbed knowing what to expect. Nothing can top macdaddy so I can no longer be shocked. Surprised? Yes, example Absurd 😅

Anyone reckon Absurd will get a physical release too? It'll most likely be through Nightrain if it does.

I'm not being funny when I say this, here's my guess:

Single sided 7" with etching on the b side for $45

SOYL features Axl vocals from 1986, and a mix of pre-Appetite tracks and new ones (at least the lead guitar track at minimum) - Absurd coming out lines up more with the theory that CD era recordings will be updated and used for a new album.  Plus SOYL was a tie-in with the AFD box set whereas this really seems to come out of nowhere

I still am skeptical of an actual album announcement, but to me this is the closest sign we have gotten to one actually being a possibility IMO.

Hardschool must not have been right? I don't know, I feel people would be a lot more receptive to it. 

The crazy thing is that the label heard Absurd and released it🤣

Jus listened on Spotify. I don't hate it as much as I thought I would, so there's that lol 

Gave it a few more spin and drove with it around town. I think I kinda like it now? In a "fuck them they got me, I got no choice" way. It's probably Slash.

I just looked at the GN'R website for the first time in years. 

It says "New F'N Song". 

Never change GN'R, never change.

The recorded version sounds better.

Tryin' to decide if I'm still missing the "What can I do? With a bitch like you".

Rhythmically it makes more sense. They could have just replaced 'a bxtch' with 'someone'. There, fixed.

Right, two people already reminded me I'd forgotten about the box set. Again, HS woulda been a way better choice for the new thing.

Never change GN'R, never change. 

I absolutely love how they are censoring a word that is used in full right in the first line of the song and many times thereafter :lol:

Oh absolutely, but $45 would be pushing it, surely?! Although having said that 7" vinyl prices seem to be sky high now. Back in the late 90s I used to pick them up because they were always 99p (just over a dollar) and you could grab them as a way of testing whether you liked a band you'd maybe heard were good but never listened to. A lot of my paperound money went that way!
