Ho ho ho. Billboard reports that Best Buy will be the exclusive retailer for Chinese Democracy, and it’ll be out “before year’s end.” Merry Christmas, baby. You’re gonna die!
Now Guns N’ Roses has fooled us before with release dates coming and going, but this time Irving Azoff is managing the b(r)and. And I can’t imagine a high-power legend like that would take any bullshit from a pretentious hick like Axl Rose. So I’m inclined to believe that this time it might just happen. In which case, Dr. Pepper is going to have to hook me up with my free can.
The first official taste of Chinese Democracy was released a couple weeks ago when “Shackler’s Revenge” was included in Rock Band 2.
