OMFG!

 

The singer's not as good as Axl was on Chinese Democracy, that's the only negative.  It's not something I'd be interested in but it sounds like an actual song played by an actual band.  The synthesizer sections sound quite nice, like actual music.  Is that even legal anymore?

 

And it looks like they've covered the entire album.  And other stuff from bootlegs.  We live in a world where a coverband is as interesting as Guns'n'Roses.  I'd like to celebrate that with a double shot of drain cleaner.  Oh just leave the whole bottle.

Today marks the 1 Month mark since ABSURD was released at Midnight on August 6 2021.

 

The YouTube video is just shy of 2 Million views,

not counting however many plays it got on Spotify, ITunes, and Amazon Music.

 

Is this good?

 

I'm not sure where this ranks as far as play counts in modern day music.

 

Is 2 Million alot of plays for 1 month?

Maiden got 2 mill views in 2-3 days for their latest vid...

Maybe the songs quality got something to do with it though

2 million in a month is very very low when judged against the most popular musical acts. With that said, rock music isn't popular. 

 

The Killers new single which is a few days old has almost a million views. 

 

Keep in mind, Absurd had a lot of press because it was the first Axl/Slash song in decades. 

 

Guns N' Roses aren't popular in the mainstream anymore. They are popular as a retro act but nobody cares about old rock bands releasing new music.

Iron Maiden has more views on their new songs. If GNR new single wasn’t trash I’m sure it would have more views
