It’s about time.  This was my favorite from all the leaks.  Song is good, way better than absurd. Now let’s hope they keep pushing toward this “new album”.  Hopefully soon is the word   🤣

Is "new album" the word when all the vocals and basic melodies are 20+ years old? 

I really hope they have created some fresh new songs with slash/duff and Axl got off his ass and recorded some new vocals.

The band have publicly said nothing about any of these songs and there are currently no tour dates immediately coming up for this to promote. From a marketing point of view it is really weird that this has been released when it has. You'd expect a press release or a band member to say something but nope.

It's not about promoting the single - singles promote things. What the hell is this promoting?

I agree. I would guess an album but you know what, I’ve been burned so many times that I’ve decided to just enjoy the song for now. I would expect a press release today if this were any other band though…

This is the best time to be a GNR fan since CD came out.

No, that would be when The Village Sessions leaked.

They're touring.

Axl sounds like a cat being run over by a lawnmower and is getting worse.

The original band are basically back together.

Oh cool, Izzy and Steven are back? So no... I felt bad for Dizzy Reed recently by the way. He's been in the band for 32 years. Slash and Duff combined have been in the band for 35 years. And still the recent Charlie Brown artwork only had Axl, Slash and Duff on it.

They're releasing music which is really pretty good, though maybe not to everyone's liking.

But the songs and vocal takes are 20 years old. And it's just two songs that had already leaked as demo's, without any real announcement or plan. 

Just now, axl666 said:

They will likely have a new album of some form out in the next year.

Assumption is the mother of all fuckups. Especially in GnR-land. Going by the past 25 years, I'd say this is a very unsafe assuption that management has given you no reason whatsoever to make.

The band is on a bit of a roll now and that's really positive.

Being a GnR fan for about 25 years has taught me to be very cautious with stuff like this. I just explained why.

Let's talk about artwork, we have :

- recycled GNR art (GNFNRS graffiti from UYI era, GNR was here from AFD era, GNR logo)

- school them art ( campus typo fro Hard Skool, locker picture)

- usual GNR sexual joke

- but what is the S in the top left corner, I don't think this is random, this must be related to something ?

It's a universal graffiti tag, it's has a pretty interesting story actually! There is a great Youtube essay about that phenomenon:

fuck the haters if you dont like it just don't listen to it and don't throw shit to whatever the band do.. old vocals, bad mix, ya yaya should be louder, guitar no soul, duff vocal should be up,  demo was better, etc etc ... why don't you just fuck off man.. we shouldn't have heard the leaks in first place. If they realease something new with vocals we've never heared before but were recorded in 2000 you wouldnt be crying

"REEEEEEEE PEOPLE ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO BE SUPER POSITIVE REEEEEEEEE"

Fucks sake dude, people are entitled to give their opinions. It's what public forums are for.

I think they may want to get across a "no fucks given" attitude of just dropping new songs without caring about the charts or the timing, which works as a sort of pre- damage control. If they hyped the releases with more promotion, the expectations for them to chart would be higher. Whereas now, even if the songs don't get a huge number of streams, they can say it's because they didn't care about that so they didn't promote them.

Just listened to it. It was never my fav track from the locker leaks but this version sounds better to my ears. Ive never enjoyed buckethead playing so what Slash did was fantastic to me. Mix sounds weird and I didnt get all the reverb on vocals, it sounds amateur. 
 

Cover is cheesy as fuck, but it may also be a nod to the “locker” leaks. 
 

Now whats next? Rumored EP? Atlas? Perhaps? I dont think we can expect a full album.

The "realism" is that we don't know what's gonna happen. Anything else is an assumption, which you condemn, according to your own words.
Sure, we're all entitled to our own opinion, but some folks keep spamming any place with it ad nauseam. But ok, I understand you've only started. :D

In all seriousness, I didn't like Absurd, but I do like this one. Miles away.

I swear to god last time I saw this S being drawn was back in the 90s in school

it is just a cool "S" everyone was drawing next to fiddo diddos L O L

TO say the cover is out of date out of anything, 

I could only relate if it was 1995 or smthing

I actually believe the cover was made by axl after he had 2 photoshops tutorials in youtube

Fair enough Milo, fair enough! ;) 

For me it's the other way around though. With ABSURD and this one. I posted my honest opinion on it a page ago. And yes, of course blindly slamming it makes little sense, but there should be room for any fair criticism on this one. And that I do have. :P

What the heck is all this doom and gloom - it's absurd! After reading some comments at this thread, I'm starting to think maybe GNR fanbase dosen't actually deserve anything any more. :P

Well because we teeling as EXACTLY is does not mean we are negative 

 

I am perfectly happy slacking working from home as freelancer loosing money cause I am bored

 

I personally have fun commenting

the song  version is mediocre

 

and cover is really a joke

 

but I feel happy at the moment just taking a coffee forum chat over a new bad song 

worlds not going to end :)

I think people should drop some of the negativity to be honest. This is the best time to be a GNR fan since CD came out. They're touring. The original band are basically back together. They're releasing music which is really pretty good, though maybe not to everyone's liking. They will likely have a new album of some form out in the next year.

Negativity can feed negativity. People can ask what's the point of releasing music now, what's it promoting. The point of releasing music is to release music- they're musicians. The band is on a  a roll now and that's really positive.

Spot on! 
 

GNR fans haven’t had it so good  in years. And when it finally gets good how do some react? With needlessly pedantic moaning :facepalm:

this is worse than before

 

Before we had some kind of hope left that this band can release something good now hope is gone we are just in this for the jokes

 

I really wish they would just mix the village leaks and release it as chinese 2
