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.

To someone people "Absurd" is also  a "biggest fart".....:D

Okay. I'm done lying to myself.

I love it. I've had it on repeat all day.

Leftover as it may be, Slash's feel and tone mixed with Axl's vocals somehow take something that objectively is quite terrible and turn it into Guns N' Roses. They managed to make Silkworms of all things sound like a Guns N' Roses song (to an extent).

I remember my grade nine health/gym teacher telling us, with respect to cutting salt out of our diet, that most people can acquire a taste for something if you consume it 16 times.

I think this is what has happened to most fans over the last 24 hours. Listen to almost anything on repeat and you’ll end up finding something to like.

I gave it two or three spins and stopped. I don’t want to like it out of sheer exposure.

But to each to their own 🤪

 I listened to it probabaly 6 or 7 times... Probably never will again unless it isn't by choice or at a live show..

This whole thing was so deflating to me.. I had a blast at the Show the other day.  Axl wasn't very good but the show was still awesome and the band was on fire.. I even saw small improvements with Fortus.... the Tempo and all that.  Yesterday I was literally looking at booking a trip to go see them in Florida.. If this is a sign of the Next Chapter, no way I am flying anywhere to see them.. Or paying $430 face value for a ticket..

At least you got to see Dead Horse!

I wouldn’t take the release of this song so, um, personally, for the lack of a better word. I have a hard time believing they’ll follow this up with something similar.  All signs point to Hard School being the next bullet in the chamber.  Consider the release of Absurd as forward progress moving towards something bigger and better.

It’s a start (hopefully).

If anything it should give us hope and perhaps even faith that there’s more to come.

Perhaps hold off on booking anything until you see something that makes sense to you personally. I can’t see tickets being all that hard to get last minute. You’re only unknown variable here is the ability to fly to Florida (which, to be honest with you, wouldn’t be my first choice in destinations).

I did! and You're Crazy! No regrets about that Fenway show at all.. I really do want to love this band but there is just nothing appealing to me about having Slash do session work over songs and playing parts his replcements wrote.. Not to mention pasting together songs with tracks recorded by a million different people in different decades lol.  I checked out on "Guns N' Roses" for about 15 years from 2001 to 2016.. I really don't want to do that again.

I think what’s most appealing is Slash playing Guns N Roses guitar. There is just something he does that’s a bit different that he does on Guns songs that he doesn’t do on any of his other material. 

That's why I'm all in ! Anything with Slash sounding like GNR Slash that You can't find in any other proyect. Velvet was close though

I still find it hilarious they released Silkworms, but it's also just sad. It's been a bad song for 20+ years and having Slash and Duff play it doesn't change that. There's some cool parts but overall, it's a clusterfuck. Axl's been tinkering with this song for 2 decades, only wrote one fucking verse, and (predictably) released old vocals.

It would make sense to follow this up with Hardschool next week, then in 2 weeks announce an album, but unless the reaction starts getting really bad, this will probably be it until the end of the tour.

However... CD2 featuring Slash, Duff, Brain and maybe some Buckethead will be fucking crazy, in a good way. :axl:

Put this song on Libertad and we'd be ragging on this as B+ material and not worth Axl's time.

I don't think this was a Herculean effort from any of the parties involved and I think it shows. It doesn't even have Cornshucker charm.

Taking it personally is right and it is pathetic!  I even told one of my friends today that it is pathetic that I am so let down by a song or a band at my age.  I have just been a huge Guns/Slash fan for like 35 years now! haha

I was hoping this was just some random one off but isn't Hardschool more of the same? Sounds like another song already leaked by NuGuns that will be cut and pasted together with Duff and Slash recording shit other people wrote.. Probably 20 year old vocals.. No one will really know who is actually playing what on the song..

Anyway, I need to crash out,  For all those that like it like @RussTCB, I am happy for them.. Sometimes I question his taste ;) but all good. 

 

Yeah, you’re probably not wrong.

But at this point this is likely the best we’re going to get. 

Feels like bonus points to me.

@RussTCB @downzy This is the greatest like icon ever! I'm using this for all my likes for now on. Because after all this band is soooo fucking ABSURD!

Credit goes to @alfierose 

She’s the MVP who crushed it at the last minute. I didn’t even notice it was a thing until well after people were using it.

Couldn't agree more. I've dropped like 200 ABSURDs in the past 2 days lol

Ha! I can't give anymore ABSURD likes because I'm out all together. Promise to give you one for this next logon.
