New Guns N' Roses song Shackler's Revenge leaked

Rockin' or rubbish? You decide
Rockin' or rubbish? You decide

Shackler's Revenge, the Guns N' Roses track set to feature on Chinese Democracy and in the Rock Band 2 videogame in September, has been leaked online.

Shackler's Revenge certainly bears little resemblance to the GN'R of old, with multi-layered tracks of Axl Rose's vocals and industrial flavours.

There is also what sounds to our ears like a characteristically barking mad Buckethead guitar solo at 2:16.

We'd advise clicking this link right now and checking it out before it inevitably gets taken down.

What do you think? Is it worth the wait?

UPDATE: Chinese Democracy review.
