What might be a brand new Guns N’ Roses song has leaked online, and according to MetalSucks, guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal has actually confirmed that the song is legitimate – although that verification has subsequently been deleted.

The song, titled Going Down, features lead vocals from bassist Tommy Stinson, with Axl Rose on backing duties. Listen to it below.

Guns N’ Roses has not released any new music since 2008′s Chinese Democracy.

  1. Here’s a more important question, does anyone actually give a flying fuck that there’s a new song from the Axl Rose Band? And no shit Stinson has to sing it cause Axl’s voice is shot. And how many fucking guys are now in this band? There’s 8 guys in this photo. Is Axl putting together a football team? I’m assuming one of the guys in this shot is the keyboardist but I can’t tell cause he’s not wearing his Hookers n Blow t-shirt. WTF?! Its appropriate that the song is called Going Down – its appropriate with this ‘band’ for sooo many reasons.

    1. DR I think we re actually putting HOOKERS AND F#$KING BLOW on the map. After taking 14 or so years to release an album with a few good songs, this Axl should be grateful anyone cares at all. He still thinks hes on top but hes far from it. BEST BUY cant give CHINESE DEMOCRACY away for $3.99 and this guy thinks a song sung by the bassist(thus no original member on it) is gonna cause a buzz. Give up that misunderstood artist bullsh&t. The guy is 50 years old. Grow up! I wanted to see G N R in Pennsylvania last year, my wife said IM NOT STAYING UP TILL 5 IN THE MORNING TO SEE AN ASSHOLE SINGER AND A BACK UP BAND. How could I argue with Mrs. Richman on that?

      1. Richman, before you know it that f’n keyboardist is going to be richer and more popular than Axl all thanks to the globally dominating business force that is Hookers ‘n’ Blow. That guy is a genius just riding Axl’s coattails all these years while secretly working on his t shirt empire. While Axl was on a private plane back in 1990 going from gig to gig, Keyboard player was on the tour bus with Slash and Matt Fucking Sorum sowing t-shirts in his bunk and thinking to himself ‘one day…..one day!’. I’m typing this wearing my H+B PJ’s as we speak. This guy will be more business savvy than Gene Simmons himself.

  2. Look, all the slash ass lickers will hate this good demo leak but having seen gnr 9 times since 06, I know axl is still bang on form…YouTube and other downloads of the band do them no justice….and to the assholes who say 8 men in gnr is too many, think of the usi tour….count them yeah, rose, duff, slash, dizzy, gilby, matt, teddy zigzag and 2 women backup singers…too many eh

    1. If you’ve only seen them since ’06, then you haven’t seen Guns N Roses. What you’ve seen is the Axl Rose Solo Band. Why all the talk about ass licking and 8 men is enough? Should we read something between the lines?

  3. Sounds pretty bad… The Axl Rose Band just doesn’t do it for me. It’s too bad that he continues to contaminate the Guns N Roses name to this day. He sounds awful in the background and that’s an honest opinion. I’m not a hater, just not digging this or Chinese Democracy.

  4. I thought CD was a different album but stuff has chnaged since AFD in 1987. Jesus I was 12 then and now I am 38 so people should stop expecting another AFD. Then again you have people who are syaing 13 doesn’t sound like Black Sabbath record….no shit the last time they did anything together is 40 years ago. Get over it. Who cares how many people are in the band, if you don’t like them don’t listen, simple. I have saw them live a few times and I thought they were great. Plus, people who say they prefer the old Guns were probably still swimming in their father’s sack then so how do they really know. Its all good, let it be.

  5. All posts true….even Axl knows it is a clown show. Ratt are dead on ’86 again….freakin’ DeMartini is ramped up white hot….more dates, just as a 2 band gig nationwide.

  6. Cmon guys…GnR was the ultimate band of the time. The Metallica tour with Body Count in KC is even still to this day the best damn concert I have EVER seen!!! Hetfeld had just come back from being burned on stage, Axl being an ass by holding up the show for like 2 hours, but all the naked chicks on screen made up for it so.. Thanks Axl!!! Guys were leaving the band Izzy then Duff, Steven being fired..I can remember when Slash was the replacement guitarist mimicking someone elses style, and look how great it turned out for him, when Miles sings with him it sounds just as sweet to me!!! I wish the best to all these guys…FUCKING ROCKSTARS!!!! Just what I always wanted to be!! Anything new they do I like!

    1. Call me hypocritical, but I don’t have a problem with Sabbath without Ward, or KISS without Ace/Peter, or Winger without Reb Beach – but after Illusion(s), GNR ceased to exist and Axlerod calling this version GNR is tantamount to Ozzy calling his solo band Sabbath. I saw GNR open for The Cult in 1987 when nobody knew who they were and the 5 originals blew everyone away. It was the first concert without pyro or affects of any kind that I had seen where you just had 5 guys completely kick ass and that included Axl. Nobody knew any of their songs and still everyone was freaking out and loving it. I swear everyone in that arena ran out the next day and bought Appetite. Axl would have plenty of credibility if he hadn’t called this version GNR. Nobody would bitch or gripe about it. For you guys who never saw the original 5, I’m trying to understand your support of this football team – and if this floats your boat, then good for you. But if you haven’t been there from the start its hard to appreciate the original 5 and how they shook up the music scene. And that’s why Axl’s solo band is not accepted by most.

  7. I think Mr Hooker’s n blow is guy on far right. Is this leaking shit supposed to be like fucking WATERGATE? Is Adler deep throat? Does G Gordon Liddy have ITS SO EASY on his IPOD? Are Trunk and Florentine like WASHINGTON POST reporters? Is Axl looking to find out Slashes secrets? Like Slash is McGovern. What a nut this Axl is. Where s Buckethead? Is he the leak? Axl will be forced to resign as President of Guns N Roses and he ll be replaced by Angry Anderson who could pull it off but might be a little old.

  8. Even the Use your Illusion tour was a joke. That’s when I lost interest as it started going downhill. It looked like a circus when I saw it on TV (them playing Wembley). In addition to the usual 5 piece, you had a keyboard player, two or three backup singers, a percussionist, anyone else I’m forgetting here? Needless to say, I didn’t go. Besides, it was so commercialised with Coca Cola sponsoring i here. I respect Izzy for leaving when he did. And I told him that myself when he toured here in Australia with the Ju Ju Hounds , around the same time. Izzy was the coolest to talk to. Totally down to earth….

    And Axl wanted Zakk Wylde at one stage….

    DR & richman, you’s crack me up!

  9. Use Your Illusion tour was okay, the mix of everybody was great on the new stuff. Chinese D was too many indians, one lost chief Axl. This thing now is just Axl with some dudes doing some garbage. Get Slash & Fergie to put a band together, tear it up like Big Brother ’67.

  10. Leaked = musically we’re lost and are going to throw stuff on the wall and see if anything sticks.

    I saw them in NYC when Thal first joined and I thought they were better than expected but they did the same ole BS of making you wait way too long for them to come out on stage. If it happened once a tour you chalk it up to “it happens” but when you’re known for being inconsiderate – F-YOU.

  11. You guy are freaking hilarious! I couldn’t agree with you guys more! When Appetite came out, I was the lone guy who didn’t care for it. I know “sure you didn’t” but I was (and still am) a huge Crue fan. I never fully understood the appeal of GNR. I like some of their music but Rock n Roll hall of shame…REALLY…and based on ONE album??!! You cant count the Illusion or Pasgetti albums because they stunk!!! That leaves Appetite and Lies, If you base it on those two then there on pretty thin ice!

    The interest in these guys is gone and they have all been better separately than they where together, MY OPINION!

    1. I was very partial to Theater of Pain despite Home Sweet Home. Very bluesy record. Crue didn’t get enough credit for that record. Shout at the Devil also had a lot of good stuff if you look past the singles.

  12. CRUE fan, Thanks for the complement. NEW TATOO in my opinion is a great comeback album after a hiatus. Castillo (RIP) was a nice fit and metal music itself was passe at the time, so that album for me brought it back for sure. MAIDEN did BRAVE NEW WORLD close to the same time so the genre got a nice lift. Definitely a fun time. APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION, however was and is truely the last standout album of the rock era. It goes alongside the all time great albums and may be the best rock album ever done by an American band. Heavy metal went in decline after APPETITE cause it could go no higher. It is the definitive album of the 1980s for certain. Not better than SABOTAGE of course but not too far off.
