Wal-Mart possibly to release the most important album of the 21st Century

Posted By on Fri, Aug 15, 2008 at 1:31 PM

Axl not looking crazy at all.

Billboard reports that negotiations are underway to release Guns N Roses long-gestating album "Chinese Democracy" (14 years in the making; take that Dr. Dre!) exclusively through a big box retailer, either Wal-Mart or Best Buy.

G'n'R is currently managed by Irving Azoff, who's been an outspoken proponent for these exclusive deals. He released the Eagles "Long Road Out of Eden" through Wal-Mart earlier this year.

As Vulture reminds us, if Wal-Mart wins the bid, that would mean New Yorkers would have to make the long haul to Seacacus, N.J. There's no Wal-Marts in any of the five boroughs.
