Why Can't you listen to OMG Outside North America

Yup. I bought OMG off UK iTunes years ago and can no longer redownload it :/ Same with some other film music I bought like the soundtrack for The Thing.

Can't see Axl fighting for it to be released! He has worked on what he now considers a finished version so I'd kinda expect to hear it at some stage in the future with Slash/Duff 

I actually like oh my god. They should have gone with oh my god over Absurd! The chorus in omg is very catchy... I'd say he'd have a heart attack trying to sing the verse now though!

Also this is what it says about Oh My God on GNR’s YouTube channel:

That's the information provided by Universal to YouTube. Looks like some people are getting royalty checks in the mail that they shouldn't be getting!

I read somewhere that OMG on the soundtrack CD  for the movie is just a demo version. It wasn't finished for a final release. It has no official release. I'm a OMG fan too. They should finish that song and release it.

Honestly I am still not unconvinced Axl called it a demo after the fact due to the poor reception of it in general at the time lol

I actually dig the song and really like Bumblefoots lead work on the demo. That being said, we don’t need it on a new album

It's all Buckethead in that demo, AFAIK.

Really!? Why is it always called the Bumblefoot version?

I guess because it leaked from the same batch of the other Bumble/Bucket stuff such as Going Down. 

I'm convinced those were just the mix Bumble made for his in-ear piece. With those tracks, the soundboard guy would know how Ron wanted his levels.

Sorta off topic, but as far as stand alone tracks on film soundtracks go…how do you stack this song up against Set Me Free? 

these 2 songs are on the opposite side of the spectrum imo. I think Set Me Free worked better as a film soundtrack and introduction to VR cause it was simple, easy to digest, old school hard rock and it was indicative of the album's direction which was much more mainstream compared to Oh My God. One of the stronger VR tunes imo. Matt really came through with the bass riff and Scott delivered an It's So Easy-esque vocal melody in the verses with a catchy and energetic chorus.

They didn't try to reinvent the wheel with this one so maybe there was less resistance from the get go to their sound. My guess is people still expected the first new Gn'R single to retain certain elements that were missing.

Oh My God was heavier and more ambitious but it wasn't a good choice for a film soundtrack imo or as the first song to introduce new Gn'R. The muddy production probably didn't help for old Gn'R fans to connect to it. It took me a few listens to really fall in love with the song.

I still listen to Set Me Free, but Oh My God is a classic for me.

sidenote: I think the poor reception was a "tragedy" to Gn'R fans cause I believe that if it was received well, Axl would have gained enough confidence in the project to maybe mix the album and release it in 1999/2000.

I like it too. I wish a full Buckethead version leaked. We did get something close to that with the Bumble parts added. Hopefully they keep some Buckethead during the chorus that you can hear on the leaked version.

There's no Bumble parts in the leaked OMG. It's full Buckethead.

The issue was two fold. The song did fit amongst the vibe and bands on that soundtrack. However that phase in popular music was well past it’s peak culturally by 98/1999

2nd was that the movie wasn’t very good commercially
