    Default Dr Pepper <3 Guns N Roses

    Dr Pepper Will Give Everyone* in America a Free Soda If Axl Rose Releases New Guns N' Roses Album, Chinese Democracy, In 2008

    *Guitarists Slash and Buckethead Will Not Be Eligible For Free Soda

    PLANO, Texas, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Tired of a world in which
    Americans idolize wannabe singers and musicals about high schoolers pass as
    rock 'n roll music, Dr Pepper is encouraging (ok, begging) Axl Rose to
    finally release his 17-year-in-the-making belabored masterpiece, Chinese
    Democracy, in 2008.

    In an unprecedented show of solidarity with Axl, everyone in America,
    except estranged GNR guitarists Slash and Buckethead, will receive a free
    can of Dr Pepper if the album ships some time -- anytime! -- in 2008. Dr
    Pepper supports Axl, and fully understands that sometimes you have to make
    it through the jungle before you get it right.

    "It took a little patience to perfect Dr Pepper's special mix of 23
    ingredients, which our fans have come to know and love," said Jaxie Alt,
    director of marketing for Dr Pepper. "So we completely understand and
    empathize with Axl's quest for perfection -- for something more than the
    average album. We know once it's released, people will refer to it as "Dr
    Pepper for the ears" because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich,
    bold sounds -- an instant classic."

    Show your support for Axl and get on the nightrain of encouragement at

    This is hilarious.

    Can I get an Orangina instead of a Dr Pepper?

    some of the stuff i heard back when i worked for his manager was pretty damn amazing...he had hundreds upon hundreds of songs, though, so who knows what will actually get the full recording treatment.

    The thing is that no matter how incredible of a record he actually releases one day, it will NEVER live up to the hype that it has caused.

    Even those demos that leaked a few years ago weren't the most terrible thing ever but were disappointing considering how anticipated this album is (was)

    Immigrants and faggots
    They make no sense to me
    They come to our country
    And think they'll do as they please
    Like start some mini Iran
    Or spread some fucking disease
    They talk so many goddamn ways
    It's all greek to me

    agreed. those 3 albums were the shit, but without slash, duff, or izzy, i could give 2 shits about what axl comes out with. calling it guns n roses is a joke.

    Gun N Roses were never really that great. Without Slash, Duffy and Matt, they are nothing. Axl Rose was always the weak point of the group.

    Guns N Roses certainly did have some kickass tunes. I enjoy most of Appetite For Destruction. But they do have a lot of shitty songs. Use Your Illusion 1 and 2 could have been put together into one damn good album. Instead they put in a bunch of filler tracks, mediocre songs, and some straight up garbage.
    I never said they were bad. They were never THAT great though.

    I saw them twice when I was in Jr high...and they fucking kicked ass...then I saw them a year and a half ago, and while it wasn't the same obviously, the new songs they played had definite potential......I love a ton of their shit, even if its not hip now....who fucking cares? I bet one of these days Axl actually will release Chinese Democracy and then everyone will be falling all over themselves acting like they've always been down....G'N'R shirts will be everywhere, and a bunch of people will be clamoring for them to headline Coachella on this very board......I definitely will be, if Slash, Izzy & Duff are there...i would accept Matt or Adler

    If you haven't notice, Guns N Roses shirts are already all around. They are mainly worn by 13 year old kids and frat boys.

    i dont see any gnr shirts these days.

    and yes, that was the same tour. i saw that show at jack murhpy stadium in sd, except we got fucked, and instead of fnm, we got body count. it was kind of cool though cuz at the end of their set, ice-t read this letter from the sdpd saying they wouldnt provide protection for the show if he played cop killer, or something similar to that. then he crumples it up, shoves it down his pants, and they play a rockin version of cop killer, while all the cops sat around looking real pissed off. still though, id have rather seen fnm.
