The following is courtesy of Robert Levine and The New York Times:

A decade and a half after releasing its previous album, GUNS N’ ROSES plans to put out a new song in September — on the video game Rock Band 2. MTV expects to announce on Monday (July 14th) that the sequel to its popular Rock Band game will include 'Shackler’s Revenge', a track from the Guns N’ Roses album that has been in the works for more than a decade, said people familiar with the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because the arrangement has yet to be announced.

The inclusion of the song on a game suggests that the Guns N’ Roses album, Chinese Democracy, will come out this fall, after years of delays. Axl Rose, who has selected replacements for the other original members, has said that the album is finished, but a release date has not been announced.

MTV and Universal Music Group, Guns N’ Roses’ label, declined to comment on the deal.

It would actually be kinda funny if this album ends up getting delayed until after China actually has a revolution and becomes a democracy. I'm sure the great Axl Rose could pull it off, all he need so do is keep fighting people who go to his concerts (such gratitude!).

Now Playing: Pig Destroyer- "Pretty in Casts"

LOL

"a song"
We know you've been waiting a long time, so here it is, MY GOLDEN OPUS, ONE SONG(a rough edit in fact, because im still not satisfied with 99.9% of the disc), SO ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN BECAUSE IT WILL ONLY BE DOWNLOADABLE FOR 5 MINUTES. I want to keep as many in the dark as possible so everyone will buy the cd without knowing if they'll like it or not.

News: Self proclaimed hard rock legend axl rose commits suicide over poor receival of half-assed downloadable song. celebrations ensue. More news updates soon and some words from tommy hilfiger!

*rolls eyes* Much like Metallica going back to their glory days (and truly delivering) with their new album, I will believe that GNR will actually release their new song in September when I see it. I doubt that it will even be worth listening to either.

Fat chance. I'm ready to call "too little, too late" . That's even if this really happens.

Even Use Your Illusion 1 sounded better two years ago than it sounded yesterday.
