Free Dr. Pepper For Every United States Citizen If Guns N' Roses Release New Album "Chinese Democracy"

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 former GN'R 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 location.

Commented Axl Rose in a statement: "We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr. Pepper with our album, 'Chinese Democracy", as for us this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others, we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead's performances are on our album, I'll share my Dr Pepper with him."

Dr Pepper is like, a Sarsparella drink, isn't it? Sars and cola or something, I dunno. I hear too much soft-drink actually lowers your sperm count lol. You'd probably have to drink a gallon of the sh** every day, but still, that's pretty nasty.

It's quite funny how different tastes are for simple things like sodas worldwide. I think Fanta pretty much disappeared from the US (along with Tab and many fruity drinks) in the 80s or 90s, but are popular everywhere (and eventyally came back here). In Slovakia, they drink the orange sodas like Fanta like water. It's funny - they even refer to it as "Fanta" even tho Fanta makes (or made) other flavors such as grape soda. Like "get me a Fanta" meaning get me anorange soda. It's like me asking for a Coke or cola when I really mean cherry Pepsi.

I love the code red and mountain dew in general, but had to limit it to 1 a day to curb my sugar intake. Sitting on your a$$ all day in front of the computer and drinking sugary drinks catches up to you after a while :-o

Hahaha I guess not!! Yoo -Hoo is like a chocolate drink tastes like watered down chocolate milk, I know it sounds unpleasant but when I was a little kid it was a favorite of mine (I havent had it for years though). I think the Beastie Boys make reference to it in a couple of their songs.

Yeah it sounds nasty but I think I remember the Beastie Boys referencing it. Beasties rule.

How about Tizer? Do they sell Tizer in the States?

Ok maybe I do remember that. I didn't try it though. I did drink a lot of Fanta there. I don't think I mentioned that. Dr Pepper, Fanta and Tea, were my drinks in there haha. I think I used Tetley's, not Earl Grey, though.

I don't drink tea actually (there I've just shattered the tea sipping limey image of me for many :p) but Tetley's used to have some decent adverts with monkeys so they win. It's all about Dr Pepper and Fanta. And Pepsi. And Coke. And Tango. Yeah, I like fizzy drinks :p

Tea is great stuff! Earl Grey is ok, but there are better teas out there.

Hey, I don't beat up my wife, but I am technically blue collar. I'll add aircraft mechanic to wifebeater and truckdrivers. I personally dislike Carlton midstrength (it's a bit like our Bud Light trash)...makes you burp and takes 5 to feel a buzz. Also think Crownies are overrated and overpriced..

Haha psythe, I remember going over to Aussie on a rugby trip when I was 18, walking into a liquor store but I didn't know what to say to all the guys to tell them I'd bought XXXX - 4X? Worst beer name ever! I'd quite like to taste American beer to see how it stands up. Drink nothing but the cheap stuff down here in studentville. I'm on some antibiotics at the moment though so have been sober as a judge for months.

Cynic, what is a sober judge?! That concept is foriegn to me. By the way American brew is really nothing to get excited about. In my opinion the German and Irish should only legally be allowed to make beer. The Canadian should be hung if cought trying to make brew. I love my friendly neigbors to the North, but you gents should stick to hockey. I love when you go to a fight and a hockey game breaks out! Hehehe!

well Cynic Kalis is pretty much right on in her description, I once heard it best described as a joke:

What does American beer and having sex in a canoe have in common? They are both F#$%ing close to water!

Nah, we have plenty of good beers here in the US. If you buy cheap, you get cheap. I prefer Killians (if it's really Irish?), Sam Adams and Honey Wheat (whoever makes that one personally. Best thing about our little local venue where I live is they have Killian's on tap. Haven't been to a single other place that does - many don't have it at all.

Cynic- Yeah, XXXX (pronounced 4X lol) is the dirtest sh** ever.

American beer is basically aussie's light beer. I don't even want to think about America's light beer hahah. I've seen Killian's on tap in a few RSLs here. Crownies are literally the top layer of the VB brew, so they're VERY overrated. I'll go for the Toohey's Extra Dry, Carlton Cold, Super Dry's or Toohey's Old because they're all cheap but drinkable.

O-Matron, I like Monty Python too :)

My Mom and Dad loved to wind surf and me and my sis would watch them kick the a$$ of those waves braveing the barges and the rocks. I would think that the lyrics of that song would be playing in their heads as they gripped the mast of their sail. Those were the days!
