MTV Multiplayer is reporting:

Rock Band 2 featured a single track off the mythical Chinese Democracy album from GUNS N' ROSES and since the record’s release, rumors swirled the entire album would hit Rock Band, rumors an MTV Games spokesperson confirmed today.

Not only can you purchase a physical copy of the long-delayed Guns N' Roses Chinese Democracy at your local Best Buy, but this spring, Chinese Democracy is coming to Rock Band as a full album of downloadable content.

Rumors inched closer to reality this morning, when Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose told Billboard Chinese Democracy was coming to Rock Band on February 28.

An MTV Games spokesperson told us Rose was speaking the truth, but clarified Chinese Democracy wouldn’t arrive in playable form until sometime this spring.

“They [MTV Games / Harmonix] felt the record-based on the nature and complexity of the depth of instrumentation-deserved a bit more attention and some more involved elements than they’ve generally dealt with,” said Rose in the interview. “I have no idea what that means but it’s my understanding they were very enthusiastic.”

Chinese Democracy is appreciated, but the real question lingers: what about Appetite For Destruction? 'November Rain' demands the full Rock Band experience.

ewwwwww......

I would be fine with a AfD download though. that album isnt half bad to this day. it still stands up pretty well against alot of contemporary rock that's been coming out.

Chinese Democracy though.....I reiterate:
ewwwwwwwww.......

Dude, November Rain wasn't from Appetite From Destruction, it was from Use Your Illusion II. Jeeze.

But I agree: Appetite AND Illusion I&II all need to be on Rock Band :)

There are a whole lot of bands that I've always wanted to see on Rock Band.

Guns 'n Roses has never been one of them.

Captain Obvious!!! :D

hahah that guy is a long-running joke in my group of friends.

I don't care what you say. I like the old GnR. November Rain was a bloody decent number. Chinese Democracy, on the other hand, can get fingered.

Out of all the good GnR music they could have picked, they're getting Chinese Democracy? (Which I still say isn't real GnR.) I agree, November Rain, or Welcome to the Jungle, would be great choices. Even though my personal fave has always been One in a Million.

Will the game tell you that the song will start in "approximately 10 minutes" since GnR almost never start a concert on time? I think it's a bad idea to use C.D. but, if it was a catalog spanning game that might be worth it. BTW, Estranged is my favorite song from GnR.

Detmetal20 - well if it's for XBOX, which is made by Microsoft, it will just give you a blue screen of death occasionally that would say something to the affect of "Axl is mad and has left the game. Please stand by while we locate him"

you're gonna play guitar hero metallica first, james gets badly burned by pyro and the game abruptly ends, so you switch to rock band chinese democracy play a few songs and that game abruptly ends due to axel's anger and incompetence, then a riot breaks out in the game and it turns into grand theft auto.
