GUNS N' ROSES: New Song 'Better' Released To Radio?

According to, the new GUNS N' ROSES song "Better" has been played the last couple of days on the Texas-based radio station Q94.5 The Rock.

People who have contacted the station have been told that this is not the demo version of the track that has been circulating on the Internet but is rather an official release sent to the station by GUNS N' ROSES' record company to play in heavy rotation. Ever since Q94.5 The Rock started playing "Better", it has been the most requested song on the station.

Q94.5 The Rock is based about a two-hour drive from Monterrey, Mexico, where GUNS N' ROSES will kick off its 2007 world tour this Saturday, June 2.

As previously reported, a studio mix of another new GUNS N' ROSES song, "There Was a Time", was leaked on May 6, making it the fourth new GN'R track in two days to be released via the Internet ("The Blues", "Chinese Democracy" and "I.R.S." were leaked two days earlier). "There Was a Time" (also known as "T.W.A.T.") was played live only twice — at the first New York City warm-up show on May 12, 2006 and Madrid, Spain on May 25, 2006 — and was mentioned as one of GN'R singer Axl Rose's favorites in an interview he gave to Rolling Stone magazine in January 2006. All tracks are rumored to be set for inclusion on GUNS N' ROSES' upcoming album "Chinese Democracy".

Longtime GUNS N' ROSES associate Del James revealed in a February 2007 online posting that "Chinese Democracy" was in the "mixing" stage.

GUNS N' ROSES' "Greatest Hits" collection, which was originally issued in March of 2004, was certified triple-platinum on April 11, 2006 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of three million copies. The CD sold 7,000 copies in the United States last week alone (week ending May 27), bringing the total number of copies sold since its release to 3.59 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
