ABSUЯD Single released at midnight


Recommended Posts

Am I being picky, or do the guitars seem too high in the mix, and the drums too low?

We need the drums up 2dB and guitars down 1 dB version. :P

The 24 bit version really is something spectacular. I feel Mothergoose would approve.

Where can this be obtained legally?

Tidal, I tried mailing you a direct link to the store, as it was a bit of a nuisance when I bought it (I'd never used it before), but your mail is full. Any issues, give me a shout.

How good is it to have some typically Slashy Slash guitars on a new GN’R track? Even if it is a song from 20 years ago, with a ridiculous chorus, it’s great to hear him backing Axl again. Slash is playing some tasty licks on this, giving it that unmistakable GN’R sound.

I like that this song has some anger and venom to it too.

Like most fans couldn’t wait for new music.I honestly don’t know what to make of this.I heard Silkworms back in the day and didn’t like it at all.I’ll try with the reworked version but not feeling it whatsoever.Hopefully they release more stuff especially Hardschool which I think will go over a lot better

I’m curious to see writing  credits and who produced the track. I have to admit it grows on you lyrically. Good to hear Slash  and Duff on this one. Love Axl’s approach.

Caram and Axl. The writing credits are simply 'Guns N' Roses'.

Will you host a similar party when the new album drops? If so, I can bring beer. Lots of beer. :)

The easy answer to that is yes because we have a music party at our house every Friday lol. 

So yeah, we'll be doing our regular music party if/when an album is released. We'll just call it a GN'R party on that particular Friday!

I have Tidal and I plan to blast the highest audio quality version later.

Kinda disappointed in this release. The original version from the Village is just better all around ... Axl's screams, the chorus, the way it goes into that dream like state early then the song comes roaring back in ... The fact that there's an actual second verse ... Why does this official release just repeat the same verse 3 times? We only need to hear "pussy full of maggots" once lol .. My favorite line from the original "parasitic demons sucking acid from your heart" is missing :(

That line is still in 👀

I hated Silkworms, and wasn't keen on the live version they performed the other day but this single is now on repeat; it sounds like a decent evolution of Guns N' Roses' music. Different, and I don't think anyone can expect them to be stuck in the 80's. Slash's guitar sounds old-school Guns though, way better than his SMKC sound. Love it.

By the way, Siri can't find 'Absurd' by Guns N' Roses, but if you ask for the 'New Guns N' Roses Single' she finds it no problem, but pronounces it 'Absooth' ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

These are the lyrics according to this site. Can't say how correct they are

Ha-oww
Listen, motherfuckers, to the song that should be heard
Back down in the gutter is more than you deserve
Screaming fucking banshee, you know that's what you are
Pussy full of maggots, isn't that absurd

Dizzy little dreamer with your head down in the stars
Fucking little schemer, got yourself inside the art
Syphilitic priestess baby, I know who you are
Parasitic demon sucking acid through your heart
Absurd

About a decade ago, a bunch of forum members created a spoof forum called Eat My Silkworms, dedicated to the genius of Chris “Mother Goose” Pitman. The origin of the bit was to take the piss out of how absolute utter shit Silkworms was as a song. 
 

Apropos of nothing, of course. Enjoy the new music, everyone 😂😂😂

Wow lol 13 years without music and we get Silkworms. Truly absurd. If it’s the first (wrongfully chosen) single off a new phase, i’m cool with that but if they chose to release this specific song as a “make up for lost time” release, man….

I'm pretty sure @Oldest Goatconfirmed that it was "fucking bitch hate you" instead of "Screaming fucking banshee". Don't know how accurate that is, personally I think his hearing is fucked...:max::lol:

A decade ago? Wasn’t that, like, TWO decades ago?!

To me, this is similar to when Metallica released "Until It Sleeps" as the 1st Single off of the Load Album. The band had not released any new material since The Black Album, and when Metallica re-emerged with a new look and sound, the single automatically turned die hard fans off from the band, due to how drastically different it was from any previous material. A lot of people failed to give the Load album a chance as a result.

If a miracle happens, and GnR actually releases a "New" album, some people may be turned off prematurely, due to hearing this single, and thinking the other material will be similar. If you haven't released anything "new" to the mainstream, technically since the Chinese Democracy album, I just don't think this song was the right pick to begin with. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but I'm sure the current line-up can put together something much better.
