I always had a soft spot for silk worms. I think it would be better without “absurd” 500x. However, Slash is killer on it. You can also hear Duff which is great since there is zero bass on the CD songs. 

 

If Axl really wanted to ditch the chorus so bad, he still could have kept the structure of the demo and did something like:

 

Quote

 

Listen motherfuckers to the song that should be heard
Back down in the gutter is more than you deserve
Screaming fucking banshee, you know that’s what you are
Pussy full of maggots, isn’t that absurd


Absurd!

 

Just another life slips away

 

Dizzy little dreamer with your head down in the stars
Fucking little schemer lost yourself inside the art
Syphilitic priestess baby, I know who you are
Parasitic demon sucking acid through your heart


Your heart!

Sure gives them more of the blame after going back on what they were originally unhappy with in guns. Playing material that was progressive

they are all despicable "artists", only in it for the money these days

FAxl, Sluff, Dush not to mention the others

 

It doesn't matter who is happy about what anymore

Having a change or additional musical influences isn't despicable its natural.

 

My point is that Axl is looking more credible to me seeing that Slash and duff just did tracks on a song they would have never touched in 96. I can understand why slash and duff didn't want to, and I get why they are open now. 

I personally don't want dad rock album after album. I enjoy the progression. 

I didn't like a lot of tracks on Illusuons when I was a kid, I grew into tracks like estranged which is now one of my favorites

if it wanted to ditch the chorus just keep the structure of the village version before the added in the chorus. 

The song never had a real chorus and stil doesn't.

I don't understand why people can't see that this song isn't about melody or a traditional song structure. Its about attitude, energy, and fuses different styles subtly together. 

Its about the rhythm of that riff.

dad rock is about being out of touch

 

the synth intro, the hamfest bridge and general Y2K vibe of Absurd are dad rock as fuck. 

It's a pitman dizzy song  -- they're leather-dad rock as fuck. 

 

there's no progression, it's just different from what made them famous, difference for difference sake

 

it's a shit difference

I do, its cool. And I'm so glad its not meant for the boomer crowd

? you do realise that GNR are a boomer band?, young casual fans who attend know this is a boomer band. Do you think they care?. 

If listening to the song with your long emo fringe and your nu metal piercings and black  finger nail polish is for you, you do you.
