I do wonder what Axl's thoughts were on the whole Pitman scandal. Pitman was obviously being a dick, then probably upset the camp by attempting to sue Axl, but at the end of the day, he was an integral part in the creation of an album Axl spent a good portion of his life labouring over

I don't think Axl have a lot of problems with Pitman even after the lawsuit... I belive, if I'm not mistaken, the biggest problem with Pitman was with Duff/Slash and the whole nostalgia thing

Well they put a fucking stop to that, by playing his fucking song!

Yeah, he contradicted himself from what he was saying over the years. He once made the claim that a band like GN'R don't need to release albums. Seeing the series of tweets when he appeared to be intoxicated was cringeworthy as fuck.

I'm fine with an album that has 50% CDII and 50% new ideas. As long as the CDII stuff is really, really good... then I don't see an issue. It'd be a good compromise for everyone involved. I'm kind of hoping this song is the stinker of the possibly future album. Hell, it may not even be on the album at all. Think about that.

Okay, I only looked at Twitter and Instagram. Still seems kinda odd that one wouldn’t at least retweet/regram the official GNR post/link about Absurd out to their millions of followers considering their currently active on those sites. 

Meghan did on her Instagram too.

GNR is such a huge band at this point and have been gone for so long they basically released a slightly better "My World" and it charted in the top 10. People are so hungry for new music from this band they could release a recording of Axl and Slash trying to see who can rip the biggest fart and it would chart.

My selection for CDII would be 

(Songs out of order) 

Absurd 

Hard School 

Oklahoma 

Atlas Shrugged 

Perhaps 

The General 

State of Grace

D Tune

Quick Song 

Me & My Elvis aka Soul Monster

This song reminds me so much of How Bazarre by OMC. 😆

I wish I didn't have the same lingering thought.  Not when I directly listen to the song, but couple mins later, wondering if I was just listening to "Silkworms" or "How Bizarre"

Also #7 on the overall charts, charting between all the Ed Sheeran The Weeknd Justin Bieber etc., lmao. What a time to be alive.

This chart position is amazing given I would consider this a C-side song................... at best.  We can assume that an album is coming which I'm excited about

What’s extremely surprising about this track is:-

The regular posters on here who I’d put money on HATING this….but actually liking it?!

Venturing out to other websites who are extremely scathing about stuff in general and finding a fairly even split of likes and dislikes of the track.

ABSURD

I want an authentic album.. a new album recorded as such, don't give me scraps from the trash 20 years ago. new means new to me, i want to see where they are artistically and performance-wise and make my judgement on that. 

amen... honestly I don't mind them working on some of Axl's ideas but this was just terrible.. Not only is it a terrible song but the fact that it is the first single and Slash and Duff have no creative input and are just playing their replacements parts makes it worse..

It has all the terrible aspects of CD in it.. Terrible mix.. Over produced.. Stupid samples.. That slow part is horrific..  They could have made it decent by re-doing it completely and changing some things to give it more of a Guns N' Roses vibe but they didn't...

There's only one word for it

 

INCREDIBLE 

 

 

One might say it's ABSURD, lol

 

You have to admit it's a hell of a troll by Axl. The song title perfectly describes the reaction of a casual fan to this song. Imagine if My World was released as a single in 1991. That's pretty much what we got here with Absurd. Very ballsy move, and pretty damn funny.
