Fans of Guns N’ Roses have something great to celebrate… their favorite band is releasing a new album after 14 long years. The album titled “Chinese Democracy” spurred a lot of raised eyebrows from the Chinese government. “A newspaper published by the ruling Chinese communist party, theGlobal Times, has described Guns N’ Roses‘ new album, ‘Chinese Democracy’, as a “venomous attack” on China. The title track of the album does not appear on Chinese versions of the album. It features a lyrical reference to the banned spiritual group Falun Gong and a lyric, “If your great wall rocks, blame yourself“.
I should get a copy of this album too. I believe this will be their last one and would eventually become a memorabilia to keep forever. Noteworthy is that iTunes has been accepting reservations for copies of the album. A record in itself is that it has topped the general iTunes store chart in 10 countries. How’s that for one huge sale… 10 days before it was ever released and it has topped the charts already.
