The U.S. District court Judge in Los Angeles turned down AXL ROSE and ex-GUNS N ROSES SLASH and DUFF MCKAGEN members to prevent Geffen Records from releasing a Guns 'n' Roses Greatest Hits record. The record, which contains 14 of the band's most well known songs, including "Welcome to the Jungle", "Sweet Child O'MIne" and "November Rain", will come out March 23rd as planned.
In a press statement, the band's management said, "Not only will audiences be misled into believing that the planned compilation is an authorized release, but [the Greatest Hits album] will hinder the release of the band's long-awaited new studio album, Chinese Democracy."
The press statement added that "there has been a massive outcry among the band's loyal audience against the Greatest Hits record" and that the fans "believe the track selection is fundamentally flawed, does not reflect the band's best work and is clearly not the ultimate package that would be selected by the band or their fanbase if they were given the opportunity."
Geffen Records has yet to issue a statement.
