I’m in between locations now so it doesn’t make sense for me to buy anything like that until I finish moving anyways (especially since this shit only ships in February/ June). Once I’m settled in my new spot I’ll order it.

Yes. I've spent $0 on Guns since the Appetite remaster was released so I figured a $6 CD was perfectly justified. :lol:

Cut and pasted old songs or not, the band is putting out something and it's exactly the type of thing I want to support. I ordered the CD and the Vinyl.

These were my thoughts. For years, I was among the fans whining for them to release literally anything and I'd buy it up. They did just that, and I will stick to my word. While I cannot say I am particularly enthused for these releases (although I am happy, if that makes sense), I figured it's a "vote with your wallet" type thing. Hopefully if they feel they have good response with this release, it will encourage more new music down the road.

Honestly does not arouse my interest. I would only buy a full album. If you tell me it will be the last official GN'R release ever and instead of Hardskool/Absurd we have 2 epic songs, that would be another scenario.

Just like I still have a sealed copy of Chinese Democracy I purchased at Best Buy on it's release day for sentimental reasons, to me this Hard Skool/Absurd CD will be a memento of a snapshot in this moment in time for me.  I am cool spending 6 bucks on such a thing, even if I wished there was more there to really cling onto sonically

Haven't purchased a CD in years so no to the original question! Will stream and listen though. At least once. Part of me hopes the live tracks are from the Live Era album... with 99 vocals so Pele gets some reprieve!

No of course not, and people saying "i bought it to support the band" are culpable in allowing Rose to carry on with the charade that he will one-day release an album. 

Who is handling the distribution of these?

Good for you.

Do you think by 'supporting the band', Rose will record some new songs for us all?

Aren't you tired of repeating yourself over and over again? Just asking because it's exhausting to read your bullshit day after day.

How about people who bought it because they like the music? 

I think GNR can manage just fine without my 'support' (they're not a charity case or a football team that deserves unfaltering benevolence or loyalty) but I do happen to like their music and will happily buy it on the astonishingly rare occasion they choose to sell it!

They are fine.

I'm specifically referring to those who said they bought the CD to 'support the band'.

So, the village lunatic has gone from simply spamming threads to basically harassing every commenter offering a different opinion. Can we trade this guy for Warchild?

Haha Warchild still exists.  Speak to Cineater if you want to find him.
