Pretty funny review from the Norwegian paper VG:

''The mystery known as Axl Rose doesn't get less mysterious after releasing the new song ''Absurd'', where the GN'R-dictator apparently has tricked original members Slash and Duff McKagan into coming along to the studio for the first time since ''The Spaghetti Incident?'' (1993). That doesn't mean their presence is noticeable in any way: This is a worthless, pretend-cool surplus product from the shitty album ''Chinese Democracy'', and that you can hear, especially from the demonstrative absence from anything reminding you of a melody. Shame on you, Axl.''

:lol:

Dizzy must be stoked. He wrote the big GNR comeback single (and is still in the band, unlike Pitman)

Axl revised the lyrics to give a shout out to both of them.

"Dizzy, little dreamer, with your head down in the stars" and

"Fucking little schemer, got yourself inside the art" (Damn you, Pitman!)

Norwegian and Swedish media don't like Axl much, are they? :lol: All the translated articles/reviews I've read since the 90s are like that.

I played it for my wife this afternoon and here is her review:

“OK, that’s a horrible song and I can only understand three words: ‘motherfuckers’, ‘absurd’ and ‘you are’.  Is he singing thru a megaphone?”

I told her that she’s wrong. That’s four words.

 

Wife didn't pick up on the masterpiece phrase "pussy full of maggots"  ... eh??

Love the punk vibe to it and British accent. Totally grown on me

This song has got me on a Prodigy kick right now. Reminds me how great they were. I love that style. Don't want a whole album of it, but damn it if isn't a fun change of pace.

My wife really likes GNR. And she liked Chinese. She listened once and was I like I don’t know about that one. It’s a little hard core.

Sounds pretty good on earphones, the synth from the original version is buried in the mix but you can hear it nonetheless. It's repetitive but energetic. Miss the original synth and the first bumblefoot guitar part post first chorus. Here's hoping there's more to come. My dad who only listens to them up to TSI even liked it. Absurd if you ask me.

I think this is way cooler as a first single back than some dad-rock commercial song. How lame would that have been? I want something unique, not SMKC with Axl on vocals.

 

That's true, but Hard School ain't Dad Rock. It's a kickass song with pretty great lyrics and vocal melody from Axl. Hopefully we get a final version of it pretty soon, with improved guitars added by Slash.

Time to investigate since it's obviously a hint. "Paris". That's clearly a reference to the 1992 show, there MUST be a live release on the way. Then let's move on to "targets fine lines" - like let's say the fine line between provocation and absurdity as proven by the last single! Furthermore, "all skin types" - this means the new album will in no way be racist. Finally we got some real clues. They probably thought they could outsmart us. Let that soak in for a minute!

As ABSURD as this sounds….it’s not that far fetched when you look at how Iron Maiden promoted their last single!
