BONUS EPISODE: The Great Chinese Democracy Takeover

Staric Chanderstad published on

Steven goes pirate radio and, as he has threatened for months, has blessed the listeners with a track by track review of Guns and Roses schizo-frenetic epic: Chinese Democracy

Ian from the East Bay guest stars as Eric and Marc wouldn't have been able to speak intelligently about this topic for 2.5 hours, not to mention the fact that they didn’t even know it was being recorded. 

Ian and Steve discuss their history with GnR, the influences between Guns and Roses and NIN, the recording and roster of hired guns performing on the album, and finally a track by track review of the record itself. Along the way you'll hear talk about #EndofDays #Terminator2 #Mastodon, #Botch, #AphexTwin, #Kanye, #DrDre, #GirlTalk, #Aerosmith, #BrianWilson, #Buckethead, and much more. 


This all started because Axl Rose owned a tshirt from the NIN Sin Single.
