At first I started thinking that if he were to make the album they'll have to create some kind of procedure that will make it less likely that people will go in for their free can of Dr. Pepper's.

But then I realized they used the ultimate trick of elimination, making it contingent on an impossibility.

Mercedes should give a free car to everyone in Germany if Axl releases the album in 2008...

*Guitarists Slash and Buckethead Will Not Be Eligible For Free Soda

OHO SNAP!!! :rolleyes:

I was really, really, really surprised to have read this, actually. The album's just taken that long to get released.

And how are they gonna ship out Dr. Pepper to everyone in America!? So many questions.

I saw somebody quote Dr Pepper being all "just like Dr Pepper is very difficult to make and the final product is great, we are sure Axl's album is a modern masterpiece".

I LOL'ed so hard at that, I swear.

He apparently has this enormous grudge against them.

I dislike GnR and Dr. Pepper so this is a lose-lose.

I really wish the Offspring had stolen that album title for real. :(

Ha! Everyone's saying this should happen! While they can't use the actual name due to the risk of being sued, they should at least use a very similar name.

I.E. Japanese Democracy, Chinese Proctology, etc.

This is great, but couldn't they have used a better drink than Dr. Pepper?

I find it funny how they're trying to use it as a motivation to get Axl to hurry this album up, but I hope he does release it so that the people at Dr. Pepper will actually have to send out all those cans. It will probably cause them a lot of confusion and chaos.


Chinese Proctology, etc.
I lol'ed at that for some reason?

A band from Winnipeg decided they would name their album Chinese Democracy as a joke, then Axl went all legal on their asses.
