Guns N' Roses will release their collection of Greatest Hits in the U.K. on June 2nd. The album has previously sold over four million copies.

This will likely not sit well with members of the band, past and present, since when the album was originally released four years ago, Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagen all tried to prevent its release.

And as far as Greatest Hits comps go, GNR's was one of the worst!!! So much was ignored and overlooked. They might as well just release Chinese Democracy now, since nobody's paying attention.

This band grew on me....very slowly. I haven't heard any recent tracks, though. I stopped listening to them after the Use Your Illusion albums.

Why didn't they release in the UK the same time or around the same time it originally came out,to me it makes no sense to re-release it to the UK and I am sure like the story states that GNR Members past and present will probably be super p***ed about it.

exactly what I was thinking as I read the post. These guys just need to give up on it already, there gone and any respect any fans have left for any of the former band members is practically diminished.

Actually, it should say "Geffen Records will re-issue GNR Greatest Hits". GNR doesnt really have much to say what DGC does as they don't have a contract with them any longer. Just don't think this will be the last Greatest hits / singles collection etc release we'll see from GNR. Milk it, thats the name of the game
