got kinda high and put my nice stereo headphones on and that song came on. Axls voice is insane and different asf on that song. Honestly best and most “gnr” sounding track on the album… 

Also makes me sad because absurd and hard school aren't as layered or interesting as they should’ve been 

I always liked the Chinese Democracy song.

The thing that kills it tho is the layers.

Demos were way better.

 

The opening riff is bad ass

I've always said it: CD is the only GNR worthy track on the whole record...(i'm not talking about Axl's best screams in other songs and parts on the album, just as a song)

 

It has that....kind of feel

It's simple, yet, in your face and punching

It has the most "edgy" lyrics

It's a rocker. it's not about Axl's formerly beaten gold digger sweethearts.

 

I prefer the short version without the long ass intro though

Axl intro scream was the closest of WTTJ on the record...

 

Easily my "go to song" if i ever be "brave" enough to show somebody what Axl did after his prime period

Josh Freese is a great songwriter lol

The album CD would have been a banger if they went with something like this as its track listing

 

CD the song

Hard School

State Of Grace

Rebel

Quick Song

Oklahoma

Zodiac 

D Tune

Prom Violence

Mustache

 

Could have been a nice rocking ten track album.

Nothing beats opening an album with a mostly silent 90 second intro 

Exactly. Axl failing to emulate Trent Reznor is so hilarious.

 

Axl can make two types of songs: dad rock and cheesy ballads.

 

Anything beyond that is a certain fail for him. That's why his industrial solo project failed so hard.

 

He even hired Chris Pitomba to help him but all Chris could do was steal some ambient noises to add to Riad. Is Chris a gypsy?
