Something called "Shackler's Revenge" is appearing on Rock Band 2.
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.
Not an entirely inexplicable course of action. Jokes that we'll see real Chinese democracy before the album version will cease regardless, replaced by a hush over the hipster commissariat: turns out beneath those arch posturings and deflated poses they have one remaining scrap of naive, innocent hope -- that this album will really, really not be awful, and might even be awesome.
