This might be the last time we feel obligated to write about Axl Rose’s magnum opus Chinese Democracy. But today is the day you can sign up for a free Dr. Pepper because GNR released Chinese Democracy before 2009. Good luck though, since it seems everybody loves Dr. Pepper. It’s struggling under the traffic right now. Also, in case you were wondering how it takes someone 17 years, $13 million and “a battalion of musicians, producers and advisers to deliver” one album then you might want to read this NY Times article. Regardless, you can buy the album today at Best Buy or in front of their computers. Or you could just steal it, I suppose. Idolator has a timeline of events that transpired from the album’s genesis to its physical release today.
