The Original Redhead: Axl Fucking Rose

8:00 AM | Comments (0) | by Chaim Witz

So in case you hadn't heard there has been yet another Guns N Roses leak (more leaks than a Minnesota Vikings sex boat! Waaa??). The song, called 'Better', is "supposedly" their new single to be released any day/week/month/decade, and is the first such leak to actually be of studio quality and not just a 'demo'.

Why is this relevant at all? Well it's probably not. But Axl does have red hair, and I figure we could all use some music news that doesn't involve Britney Spears.

Axl the Nazi is sure to make all of these leaks cease and desist faster than you can say "Tim Hardaway hates gay people", so enjoy this homeade YouTube clip while you can. I love how the video montage is just random GNR live clips interspersed with clips from Prison Break. Huh? I'm too tired to even think of what that means.

Anyway, what do you think? Certainly better than some of the other tracks I've heard off Chinese Democracy. Gets better with repeated listens. I'm especially partial to the middle of the song, where it kicks in. But my benefit of the doubt may have something to do with the fact that I just worked a 14 hour day fueled by cocaine, horse steroids, oxycontin and Norwegian death metal, and I'm beginning to crash. Hard.

Speaking of which, why haven't I done a Realm of Red on Axl yet? I honestly have no answer to that question (though Buckethead might). I'll get around to it one of these years. Consider it my own personal 'Chinese Democracy'.
UPDATE: I found a better YouTube clip, this one played to Casino Royale clips instead of Prison Break. So in honor of Governor Gray Davis, I've made the switch.

Dad?
