Poll: What Do You Think of the New Guns N’ Roses Song, “Absurd”?
Last week, Guns N’ Roses released a new(ish) song, “Absurd” (or, er, “ABSUЯD,” but… yeah let’s never speak of that decision again).
A reworking of a never-officially-released song from the Chinese Democracy sessions called “Silkworms,” the fresh iteration of the track marks the first studio recording of original Guns N’ Roses material to feature singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash, and bassist Duff McKagan since 1991’s Use Your Illusion collection. It’s also the first time any version of the band has released music since Chinese Democracy in 2008.
Now that you’ve had some time to listen to, re-listen-to, and digest the song, we ask you, beloved MetalSucks readers: whattaya think? Was it worth the wait? Is it total crap? Somewhere in-between? Vote below!
