I wonder how many people with "ethics" issues about Wal-Mart have illegally downloaded the leaks.

Besides the obvious "ethics" contradiction, you are the sole reason the music industry have had no choice but to come up with creative sources of revenue such as exclusive retailers and video game releases.

Edit: And yes, I contributed to that as well, but I'm not bitching about it.

Treating your employees like garbage, and not allowing them to have a union is bit worse than downloading a song Roll Eyes

In my home town, after the commercial fishery shut down, Walmat became the biggest employer. Everyone in my hometown are very grateful for Walmat and the jobs they provide.

You are being pretentious and sophomoric.

And how many jobs has Wal*Mart taken away and how many American towns have had their identities raped because of Wal*Mart?

Do you know how many children suffer in Wal*Marts sweat shops?

Are you aware of the fact that Wal*Mart store managers mess with the computer payroll system just to make their stores profitable?

BUT THEY LET OLD PEOPLE GREET CUSTOMERS!  HUZZAH!

Interesting article, but nothing confirmed yet, so I'll try to temper my excitement. As for Wal-Mart and the censorship, the new songs we've heard really don't contain many curse words.  I'm not sure what it takes to slap that parental advisory sticker on a CD but it may not be an issue.  Not anywhere near the cursing that can be found on their previous albums.  Someone gave 2 examples earlier.  I find it hard to believe they'd make a clean version of the CD for 2 bad words.  Who knows though, in these crazy times.

Everyone in your town were extremely happy to be treated like shit, and making what, $6.75/hour? Huh

Pretty warped if you ask me..

LOL! You know the world make the same argument about America?! Wal-Mart is America... and I am a friggin' American. Stop living in denial... are you a Capitolist or a Socialist. There is nothing wrong with either, but if you are a Socialist, I think you'll feel more catered to in Canada.

VOTE OBAMA!

The Walmart employees in my hometown prefer Walmat to Welfare. And they aren't treeted like shit, I know that because I have friends there.

Either way, I'm buying Chinese Democracy. Enough threadjacking.

So let me get this straight on how all of this works.

What special advantages do u get for releasing it straight to Wal Mart or somewhere? Do they pay any of the recording costs or do anything like that? Help with the promotion? I know GNR and the label probably get a bigger piece of the revenue.

You have to look at it in wider terms than just the album. The real reason for doing it is to get people through the door. That's why some stores (such as the Wal Mart owned Asda...) were prepared to sell the last Harry Potter at a loss. 1. You're taking business away from your competitors and 2. Chances are that a lot of people are going to buy more than just the album once they're in.

So anybody striking up an exclusivity deal are likely to get whatever the want... If the product is going to be big enough... Recording costs or marketing is by the by, regardless it's all green.

Even if we loose money, atleast our competition can't compete with us by selling the same product.

Real nice.

This certainly will feel a lot different than 1991 when UYI came out at midnight at Tower Records in LA (Tower Records went bankrupt in 2006).

Hopefully, Walmart can try to duplicate some of the excitement and hype that surrounded the last major GNR release.

The article doesn't specify what chain will have the exclusive, if they get it.....

You look at it like this, If they do an exclusive, it keeps it off ITunes and Kid Rock has proven that is SMART!

Selling 500,000 albums at 15 dollars, is a hell of a lot more profitable than 1 million people buying 1 song for 99 cents. I think it would be a great idea, would be cool if they could work out a double deal with Walmart and Best Buy. Clean version with one of those live studio peformance things for Walmart and maybe the explicit version and some different extras for Best Buy.

I would kill to see a behind the scenes making of though. If they put something like that in a boxset for 100 bucks. Id buy it no questions asked.

Hell the album with anything live from 06 or 07 would be dynamite.  There were a ton of great live performances the past 2 years.  Regardless of where it's released, it's the release the we want, I'll buy it at FYE, I don't care.

So assuming Wal-Mart do get the gig, the next question has to be does the album go in the drinks aisle next to the Dr Pepper or is there cans in the record department.  rofl
