Hell must have frozen over, because after a decade of working on it, Axl Rose is finally releasing Chinese Democracy. Just announced today, the official release date for the album is Sunday, November 23rd. Unfortunately, the album will only be sold through Best Buy retail outlets – and no doubt its release was strategically planned to appeal to the holiday shoppers. Having the release a week before Thanksgiving will likely give the album a boost in sales.
The band’s last album was released in 1991, leaving fans having to wait more than a decade for new material. You can currently hear “Shacklers Revenge” on the videogame Rock Band 2. Whether you are a fan of Guns N’ Roses or not, this is a time to celebrate. Because as many of you already know, we’re going to get a coupon for a free Dr. Pepper. Unless of course, you’re not a fan of either, in which case you probably could care less.
