Axl was mentioned on Sam Kinison's album, "Live from Hell". Kinison was talking about how he missed the Joan Rivers show and the media made such a big deal about it, but other celebs did worse. he mentioned that Axl had a warrant out for his arrest in MI. for inciting a riot with $300, 000 damage done.

Slash also appeared on Kinison's "Leader of the Banned" album, he played on Kinison's cover of "Highway to Hell"

"Grosse Point Blank", 1997
Gun's N' Roses Live and Let Die comes on
outside the store, then Paul McCartney's
version inside the store.


It's not McCartney's version. It's some live-and-let-lite muzak remix, which contrasts against the GnR version in a much more humorous (and satirical, considering the context of the scene, where the protagonist's childhood home has been converted to a convenience store) way.


"Dead Pool", 1988
GNR members make two brief
appearances in the movie: at a rock
star's funeral and on a boat.
Soundtrack contains:
"Welcome To The Jungle"

One might also note that said rock star (played by a young Jim Carrey) whose funeral that is, has more than a passing resemblance to Appetite era Axl, leather pants and all.

Another Simpsons Tidbit.
In an episode called *Can't remember's*wedding  Mr. *Can't remember*  Gets married.(Didn't see that one coming, eh??)
In Church Otto wears very slash-ish tophat.When you throw in Otto's  Slash-ish haircut and november rain-ish church, it's hard not to think about GNR/Nov.rain.
Might be a coincidence, though.

Nothing to do with movies but what the hell,

There are quite a few GNR references in Stephen King's books.

In Bag Of Bones, WTTJ plays in  radio when the main char is driving to one place or another near the ending.
King uses a line or two to descripe the song."Dirty and aggressive"or something like that.
In some..errr..library-related short story Main char. and libararian(who turned out to be a demon, i think!)are debating about wether or not it is adequate to have a GNR poster in the children section of the library.
There are more but I can't remember them anymore!

Well, I only get to watch cartoons mostly, but I do have a GNR cameo to mention  :)

On "Hey Arnold" (Nickelodeon), they are recapping the life of a washed up lounge singer who has apparently died.  One of his attemptes at a comeback is mentioned as a duet with GNR.  They show this guy with the original GNR members all leathered out and Axl leaning on his shoulder. [hihi]

Well, I was funny to me  ;).  My guess is most of the 4-10 yr olds had no clue  [hihi] [hihi]

Three Of Hearts. Kelly Lynch is a lesbian who wears a black leather jacket and a bandana and William Baldwin said she looked like Axl Rose.

I think Stephen King called Axl an asshole in one of his books.

On Five in the UK about 20 minutes ago they had this advert for an Arnie/Terminator night coming up.  It had this chick at a bar talking to this barman saying she was on a blind date or something and her date was supposed to be tall or something, then YCBM starts playing and she turns and Arnie in Terminator mode (even looks at her through that red screen thing - u know u see it through his eyes) all this time YCBM was playing it was like a flashback to T2 and the old days ;D

A couple Ive noticed recently...

I was watching an episode of the awful "Americas Funniest People", which most likely aired in '91, '92, and the host, David Coulier, says "When we return from commercial...",  something about thumbs-up, adding "...and Axl Rose will give us a hand gesture of a different kind."

An ad for the new "Headbangers Ball" has two guys talking and one says something like "...but it took Guns N' Roses tearing down the set to do that."

In the Mr. Show Seasons 1 & 2 DVD, a cast member observes during the audio commentary that the theme music for one of the skits can be sung to the tue of "Sweet Child O' Mine" and then sings it an Axl voice.

Sometime in the mid-90s there was a show on CBS called Middle Ages. It was about baby boomers, sort of like Thirtysomething, only these people were in their forties. I was watching one time when a guy was talking disparagingly about Geffen records, saying something like " how good can this company be when their biggest property is Axl Rose?". It really pissed me off at the time, even though I liked the show.

Also, there was an early episode of ER in which one of the female doctors was wearing an original GNR logo shirt (back of bullet/2 pistols/roses).

Christina Applegate used to have a sitcom named Jesse, and they once had an episode flashback to the birth of her (Jesse's) son when she was a teenager.  I don't remember exactly, but I know she wanted to name the kid Axl and at some point she does an imitation of Axl moves, I think while in line for GNR tickets.

Yeah and on the same sitcom, there was an episode, when they went to some strip club or something. Or restaurant where a male-stripper was acting and he was doing it to Welcome To The Jungle.


And as You remember in "Cost to cost with Space Ghost" on CartoonNetwok with Slash, which I never see, damm.

Married With Children -- Al was once a member of a band in which he called himself Axl Bundy.

Married With Children -- Bud sold a pair of sunglasses to Kelly under the guise that she could use them to view a shirtless Axl.

America's Funniest Home Videos -- I once saw a little kid wearing a UYI 2 t-shirt.

MTV Death Match (was that what it was called?) -- there was an Axl v. Slash match

The Newz -- they used to have this comedy skit featuring Jennifer Aniston in which she played a GN'R groupie.  Andy Dick played Axl, but I forget who played Slash.

Full House -- the kids were watching a music awards show and bet whether or not the band would even find the stage.

SNL -- Matt Damon did an Axl skit.

SNL -- there was once an Axl / Sebastian Bach skit for toddlers (I think).

Wheel of Fortune -- Guns N' Roses was the answer to one of their puzzles.

Guiding Light (or one of those soap operas) -- way back circa the late '80s one of the cast members blared "Nigtrain" on his Walkman.

Doonesbury (comic strip) -- one of the characters had a GN'R t-shirt.

Foxtrot (comic strip) -- Peter had a dream which featured Axl, Slash, and Stephanie Seymour

Foxtrot (comic strip) -- Peter was deciding what music to listen to...one choice was GN'R.

Snapple commercial -- there's a Snapple commercial featuring a rock band that looks oddly inspired by GN'R.

I also hope (as a fan), that Guns will be mentioned. But I see it this way

a)before relising the album, mentions like
Two guys talking
-We'll have to wait
-Hope not like for Chinese Democracy...

b)after relising:
Wich I don't know how it's gonna look like, but after all these posts I red, I'm a little bit sceared. Maybe not the studio album, but live shows.
Nevermind, 'cause I'm loosing the topic.

I guess, old and new Guns will be mention for years and years.

Axl was mentioned on Craig Kilburn show last night (Why I was watcing, I dont even know)  Some guy named Roberto Rodriguez was on, he does most of the Spy Kids Soundtrack I think they said.  Anyway, they changed the subject to music and Kilborn was like, "You can sing like Axl Rose?" but the guy said no so Kilbron was talking out of his ass.

Conan O' brien's band play paradice city.  Conan said,"Yea a little Guns N' Roses" and then he compared Axl's snake dance to a hose going crazy.

I didn't see this mentioned in this thread, although I know it was mentioned on here somewhere before, but in one of the MegaMan X games..I can't remember exactly which one...all of the boss characters have names that are spinoffs on the GN'R members..which is pretty fucking cool:

Axl The Red (I think they spelled it Axel or Axle)
Duff McWhalen
Grizzly Slash
Squid Adler
Mattrex

and I can't remember the others right now...there should be about 3 more....but their names just...escape me (yes, GN'R reference intended there)

A movie that came out in 89-90 called Ford Fairlane-Rock n' Roll Detective. Very funny movie with Dick Clay(?) in it. A scene near the start, a women mentions a Guns n' Roses video rap (up) party.
N' near the end another women says if Axl Rose would be reincarnated, would it be a black women or...........(cant remember)
Anyone ever seen this?

and owen wilson's character says an indirect GNR quote. Its when he has been convinced by John Voight to try and catch the snake and they tell the others what they're gonna do. He says:

"Look around you, do you know where you are? welcome to the jungle...........you can die out here"

i wonder if it was deliberate.

Also in MMX7 One of the characters is named Axl! He has sort of long hair thats red and he uses guns as weapons.

Full House: Jesse Is talking about how he doesn't want to go to something and his wife Becky Says: "Well Guns N' Roses never won the Kentucky Derby." Can you imagaine that!? :rofl:

This isn't movies/tv, but i'm gonna mention it anyways.
I went to the projekt revolution tour on september 5th, and during the band The Used, the lead singer was like "whos ready to see snoop? *cheers* whose ready to see korn? *cheers* Whos ready to see LP? *cheers* Whos ready to see guns n fuckn roses!" and the crowd just exploded. then he was like "well, sorry about that, I guess I'm either on the wrong tour or axl didn't show."
And then later in the night during the band linkin park, during a break, the guitarist played the opening to SCOM and stopped and the singer was like "if you start playing GNR, you better fucking finish it" and he started singing along, and the crowd sang along more for SCOM than they did for the entire linkin park set.

I've been hearing a bit of GnR on Fox lately.  They're using the GnR version of Live and Let Die during some of the "Rebel Billionaire" promos.  In addition, they've been using some GnR (I've heard Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City) during some of the MLB playoff games...during the "game moment" interstititals leading into and out of commercials.

Just watching D2: The Might Ducks :-[, one of the Hockey players is wearing a UYI T-Shirt with UYI1 on the front and UYI2 on the back, just another nice film reference to add to the ever increasing list.  As for TV i think every now knows the GTA San Andreas advert with Welcome To The Jungle playing, now it's Christmas it seems to be getting played more and more.  Now this one is a long shot but, Johnny Depp starred in the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers video Into the Great Wide Open playing a rocker along with Faye Dunaway, now that same year he starred in a film with Faye Dunaway playing a character called Axel Blackmar, probably not much of a connection there but i thought it was worth a shot.

The Simpsons have always done great guest bits with music stars.  My favourite was that bit from the "Homerpalooza" episode where Peter Frampton's pig isn't working.

"Hey Springfield!  Do you feel?  Do you...do you...do you feel...dammit, my pig isn't working.  HEY!  Sonic Youth is in my cooler!"

Otto is based on Slash.

Duff is based on Duff "The King of Beers" McKagan.

And apart from this episode, WTTJ has featured in at least 2 other episodes.


It's on the commentry on a Simpsons DVD.

I was so excited to post the Weezer/Mallrats reference but I guess I was too slow. But since we've diverged a few times from TV and Movies, I got one that hasn't come up yet. NOFX (my 2nd favorite band) mentions Guns in 2 songs.

in "El Lay" on the album "S & M Airlines": "Get outta my way. Can't you see I'm from LA. I met Slash. I got a Rose tattoo."

in "We Got Two Jealous Agains" on "The War On Errorism": Fat Mike sings about loving his wife because she has similiar taste in music which gives him doubles of all his favorite vinyl but then adds "What's with this Underdog, and this GN'R EP? I don't think Hanoi Rocks, and I don't want your Paul Stanly next to my Subhumans Gatefold. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I don't think this record merger is gonna work"

...i guess Mrs. Fat Mike owns Live @#$% Like A Suicide. hahaha

Song title similarities:

They Might Be Giants have a song called "Welcome To The Jungle" and The Arrogant Sons Of Bitches have a song called "November Rain" niether one bares any similarities to the GN'R songs.

There's a sweet new movie coming up on the Sci Fi Channel called "MegaSnake."  It's packed with GNR references...

*Two of the main characters are snake-handling brothers named Les Daniels (Les Paul + Jack Daniels) and Duff. 

*One character calls another one "Bumblefoot" when he trips and falls. 

*A guy pines over his lost love, Erin, while discussing how beautiful her smile and blue eyes were. 

*There's an abused dog named Izzy (a dog they liked to beat).

There are others, but I can't remember them all.  Plus, lots of references to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Alice Cooper, Rush and the Drive by Truckers.  That movie is a stroll through rock history.  But mainly GNR.

backyard babies was also on the afterparty in stockholm where gnr was last summer in after the stockholm gig and they are among GNR's top friends on myspace wich all makes me wish for a BYB to open for GNR in the future, they'd fit great and they know del james and we all know del knows axl pretty good

Wikipedia trumped us all this time around. I forgot this one totally

"The title of the album [UYI] was the focus of a joke on an episode of the sitcom Arrested Development that aired well over a decade after the CD's release. When magician Tony Wonder (played by Ben Stiller) had to come up with a name for his home video, he decided to name it Use Your Illusion II, citing that Use Your Illusion I had already been taken, apparently unaware of the fact that Use Your Illusion II is also the name of an album. In the end, he used the title Use Your Allusion."

also

A band I despise, TREEPHORT, actually did something pretty funny and called their last album "USE YOUR ILLUSION III" the artwork is very similiar except the backround guy is holding a gallon of milk and puking into the trash can and the guy in the forground is not reading but instead lighting his genitals on fire (both those antics were used consistantly onstage during Treephort shows).

GNR was referenced in the show Californication last night.  The main character (David Duchovany) who is a writer has had writer's block and was being interviewed by a DJ (Henry Rollins) and the DJ said something like "Hope it doesn't take you 10 years to write another book like it is taking GNR to put out their latest album"...some shit like that...it was not that funny...I think the writer of the show likes GNR because this is the show that they featured Tommy's "Light of Day" although the incorporation of GNR was just another rip on the album's delay...At least they are fucking relevant!!!  This album will be huge...the mystique of the album has trumped the album itself...Axl's plan is in full effect and working just like he wants it....

I would think since Axl makes all the decisions and this is his ship that yes he is proceeding with his plan and I think his plan is working beautifully...yes it probably isolates some die hard fans who wait and wait but when the album is released they will be back for sure.  For the rest of the world has their ever been an album so anticipated? A New York times article...every store posting fake release dates...shit even the Atlantic Monthly was reporting the release of the album when it was tentatively slated for March, 2007.  References on countless late night talk shows, radio shows, TV Shows...it does not stop and will not stop until the album is released so than why release the fucker because the anticipation keeps growing and growing...Yes the majority of the press may be negative but who the fuck cares...surely not Axl cause in the end he will have the last laugh when first week sales kick ass....and while the release keeps getting pushed out Axl can tweak and fine tune the album to his satisfaction all the while still getting free publicity due to the album's delay.    So yes I am serious that Axl has a plan and it is being executed today, tomorrow, basically until he decides that the next act begins.  Why the tours?  To introduce the new band/new songs to the world in preparation for the GNR Locamotive ready to barrel through cities and stadiums once again and to maintain "The Relevance".  Somehow Axl has managed to make GNR still relevant throughout the world for 15 fucking years without an album.  If you are relevant than you have the control and relevance has been Axl's plan all along.  For Axl to capture the rights to the GNR name shows that only he knew the power of his past and the prowess of his future.  That said,  where the fuck is the album?  I am so fucking ready and done with him taking over my existence on the internet.

GNR was referenced in the show Californication last night.  The main character (David Duchovany) who is a writer has had writer's block and was being interviewed by a DJ (Henry Rollins) and the DJ said something like "Hope it doesn't take you 10 years to write another book like it is taking GNR to put out their latest album"...some shit like that...it was not that funny...I think the writer of the show likes GNR because this is the show that they featured Tommy's "Light of Day" although the incorporation of GNR was just another rip on the album's delay...At least they are fucking relevant!!!  This album will be huge...the mystique of the album has trumped the album itself...Axl's plan is in full effect and working just like he wants it....


This was the bit from Californication

DJ:-
"Some folk have compared the wait for your new novel to the decade plus wait from the new Guns N Roses album which one do you think will see the light of day first?"

Hank:-
"I would certainly hope I beat Guns N Roses to the punch because i want to get on Oprah book club" then there was some other stuff about Oprah

I saw some American sitcom today, I don't know the title in english since it was translated.

Anyway, a guy said something that didn't make any sense (I was half asleep) and a girl replied:

"Really? That's like letting Axl Rose do anti-drug commercials."

 :rofl:

I'm a damaged fan, but the delivery was perfect.

I didn?t have time to read all the posts, so maybe this post is a " re run "

But....

In one episode of BH, 90210, Brandon meets this girl who?s ex boyfriend plays in a band and is very " violent" ( The rockers is played by Courtney Cox husband i think )
And one time Brandon says to him " Calm down Axl " To which he replies " Axl sold himself" And then walks away, looking pissed  :hihi:....The episode was aired sometime in the early 90?s... ::)

In the show My so-called life, in the first episode, Angela (Claire Danes) dies her hair red. Her parents are in shock a little bit.
Her dad says to her: Oh... well I can see it now: social world, wild parties...Axl Rose.

I have a question. In Pulp Fiction, has anyone noticed how the guy that helps Uma when she's almost dying looks really like Axl. I always thought it was intentionnal. If I remember correctly, he's wearing a kilt or at least a skirt and has long red hair.

Not trying to be ultra-sensitive on Axl's behalf, but it stinks that he gets dragged down like that with a drug referance when from everything I've ever heard Axl never really had a problem with drugs other than the problem he had with his band mates using too much of them. Not that Axl never did any drugs or should be on D.A.R.E. posters or something but still it's not like he had a problem as bad as a ton of other rock stars popular at or around the same years he was.

If he didn't want to be "dragged down" with that he could have left GNR , hell he could have left LA. His band was regarded as the most dangerous guys in rock n roll. LA was not the place to be if you wanted to get away from drugs.... I agree that Axl never really had a big drug problem except during I think it was 89-91 he said he did way too much dope for his own good. There's a picture of him with a giant bud somewhere floating around.

Just watched True Lies for the 1st time. And there was an Axl mention. Tom Arnold said to Arnold S.  something to the effect of: "Your not her parents, her parents are Maddonna and Axl Rose".

This is what happens when writers are on strike.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGex5VZB7T4

The female character starts talking about Mike Patton. Then she says she saw Faith No More open for Guns N' Roses once. I thought it was bizarre but funny. I'm sure since there's no real news going on right now this is worth posting for giggles.

Just in case anyone's interested in the back story on this clip - here's an interview with Patton:

http://www.movieweb.com/news/87/25087.php

Quote
Now, I have to ask you about this. I don't think I've seen you comment on it yet. There is this clip that is all over the internet from All My Children. Where they talk about you on that soap opera. I'm wondering what your reaction to that was?

Mike Patton: Uh...I'm speechless. That was completely out of left field. I have no idea who is writing for that show. But he is probably fired by now.

Yeah. I thought it was pretty funny. I was sitting there in the daytime when it came on TV in the other room. And I heard, "Mike Patton"? Uh, what? What is going on with this?

Mike Patton: (Laughs) Rewind! I really...I don't know what to say about that. There must be some freak working on that program. That is all I can tell you.

Grimsby runner tackles Sahara trek

The mountains didn?t get to her. Neither did the sandstorms. And when the blisters started showing up, she just soldiered on.

In fact, Grimsby runner Andrea Lynn Sloan is already thinking about her next challenge after completing the gruelling Marathon Des Sables this week.

Sloan ran with a 10.5-kilogram backpack of supplies, including bars of oatmeal for breakfast and freeze-dried food for dinner.

Each day, the race would start around 9 a.m. and continue through scorching heat ? up to 51?C on the hottest day.

Heat wasn?t a problem for Sloan, who arrived in Ouarzazarte, Morocco two days before the race to get acclimatized and found the 30?C city temperatures chilly. While others were shedding clothes for shorts, she was wearing a jacket and looked forward to warming up in the desert.

But at night, temperatures would dip to zero and Sloan wore thermal silk pyjamas with a sleeping bag wrapped around her body.

Runners tackled a different length of race each day, ranging from 17.5 kilometres to a torturous 75 kilometres.

That longest stretch took 25 hours to complete. Sixteen hours into that stage, Sloan said she started hallucinating that Axl Rose was singing Paradise City in front of her.

That?s when she knew it was time to take a two-hour break at the next rest stop.

PS: Love that white jacket Axl wore in 2006 where Axl, Beta and co. visit the F1 race in England. Really cool. Reminds me of this pearl design on some Eton shirts.

Today's NY Post has a review of the new Will Ferrell movie 'Step Brothers' and it mentions SCOM.

MOVIE REVIEW
BEST IN BRO!
'Step Brothers' funniest film of year
By KYLE SMITH
July 25, 2008 --
 
I thought I knew funny, but I was mistaken. Before the blessed light of "Step Brothers" entered my life, I knew not the sweet comedic splendors of live burial, bunk-bed catastrophe or a minivan family singing "Sweet Child O' Mine" in four-part harmony.

Saw Step Brothers last night with Will Ferrell. Wasn't too bad of a movie, quite funny at times.

However, when Will's brother and his family are coming over for dinner (or something to that effect..) they start singing SCOM in the car on the way. Not to post any spoilers, but the brother is a dick and it's just a funny moment.

This is a radio show that turned into a TV show.  In flight of the conchords, they are talking about threesomes being part of rock n roll and their manager goes "everyone has threesomes, look at guns n roses" and germaine goes "so axl's there, and he's got duff and slash also there" and the manager replies "yeah, i don't know what they use".

On 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' they just did a bit that's like celebrity "Jeopardy" (tv game show) where Jay gives the answer and the celebrity has to guess the question.

The answer was Guns N' Roses.  The Sarah Palin character replied "What my husband Todd gives me for Valentine's Day?"

Hi All,

Former forum member here, back again.  I didn't really want to start a new thread but I couldn't anywhere to put this.

I got up this morning and switch on the breakfast TV here in Aus and there I see it. GNR's blazen across the screen with the anouncement "Axl Rose has confirmed Chinese Democracy will be released in November".

It was sort of a TV gossip section, they also mentioned Michael Jackson doesn't want to release his forthcoming album until its the equivalent of Thriller.

Take it for what it is..  Personally I've been around too long to get excited until I here something official but all the planets seem to be aligned.

i just wanted to let you all know.. after all I have never woked up to the GNR on Breakfast TV.. quite a nice suprise.

peace out

As for E & 'Chelsea Lately'...while after this much hub-bub without a forced retraction (the GnR Legal team is spot on) we must 'assume' the un-official news is true...in spite of the fact that it was on E & Chelsea. :hihi:

This is for a radio show and may have been mentioned before, but after the Howard Stern Show on Sirius they have what they call "The Wrap Up Show".  They review the events of the show each day.  At the end of the show they often play "You Could Be Mine" or "Mr. Brownstone".  Another example of someone with good taste in music.

The Story of the Guitar - Sunday 19 October
10:20pm - 11:20pm
BBC1

"In the final programme of the series the guitarists talk about how they find their own sound, and how the guitar has changed their lives. Since its invention, the electric guitar has unleashed a seemingly inexhaustible sonic invention among guitarists.

Featuring Muse's Matt Bellamy, who turns out to be following in his father's space age footsteps, Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath, who talks about the invention of heavy metal, David Gilmour from Pink Floyd, Pete Townshend (Perhaps equally famous for smashing guitars), Johnny Marr from the Smiths on 'the mother of all riffs', Slash and The Edge from U2 among many others."


http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00f3564

[Wasn't sure whether this should be in the ex-Gunners section but seeing as how they're bound to show some vintage GN'R action thought it'd be okay here.  Feel free to move, if not...]

A cool little 1984 exploitation film entitled SAVAGE STREETs just got released on DVD.  Some of the extra features include commentary tracks with the actors/producers/etc.

During the film, there is a scene where a rock band is playing in a club and a fight breaks out.  On one of the DVD commentaries, one of the actors says something like --  "Now, if this were a few years later, that band would've been Guns N Roses, and Axl would've jumped offstage and brawled with them, and all hell would've broken loose!"

Something like that anyway.

he'd make jokes about the age of members of the Rollings Stones or Aerosmith too (he probably already has).

They haven't put out an album of original material since 1991.    Of course GnR is a huge band, but they've been out of the public spotlight for the most part and the fact that Jay is bringing Axl up in his nightly routine shows the latest GnR news hasn't gone unnoticed.

Oh, listen to the whiny ass bastards talking shit about Jay Leno.  How DARE anybody crack a simple joke about Axl, despite the fact that he's given comedians enough fodder for a lifetime of jokes.

But for once, I actually concur with my longtime nemesis Jim Bob.  The fact that Jay Leno is mentioning Axl is good news for Axl and his album.  As the saying goes, there is no such thing as bad publicity.

It doesn't matter if Leno cracked wise on Axl, the bottom line is that three million people heard Leno say that Axl is releasing a new CD soon.  That's great publicity, and (as someone else said) Conan O'Brien is sure to folllow suit as well.

There is a difference between mean spirited attacks, lies, and other crap - and a guy that tells (tries to tell) jokes for a living poking fun at Axl.  A lot of people watch for the monologue ONLY, and GnR got a free ad at peak viewing time.  People should lighten up.  Perhaps Jay should put little laughing emoticons on-screen after he drops a bomb, just to let the anti-social basement dwelling techno-crats know he told a joke.

NY Giants always play it, as do the Devils.

I didn' t read the whole thing, so sorry if someone already mentioned these:

In this one episode of Gilmore Girls, Lorelai goes over to Christopher's house and it's all messy because of his little kid and she says: " Ok, so when did Axl Rose leave??"

And in another episode, one that Sebastian Bach is playing the guitarist in Rory's best friend's band , the lead singer doesn't want to start the gig and the rest of the band is pushing him to and he says something like: "No one tells Axl Rose when he should start the show"

=P

Gilmore girls was so lame, but I watched it and always remember these lines... and the one already mentioned about Stephanie Seymour's dress in November Rain.

ESPN's Page Two did a year-end retrospective on "the year that wasn't."


"Aug. 8: The world turns its focus to Beijing, where an army of acrobats, dancers, martial artists and schoolgirls enter the iconic Birds Nest Olympic stadium to stand in line for the long-awaited release of Guns N' Roses' "Chinese Democracy." The album is tangled in controversy, however, when journalists discover Axl Rose's performance in the title-track video was lip-synched by a 9-year-old Chinese girl with buck teeth."

I was just watching Howard TV (Howard Stern's on demand channel).  There was an episode covering Artie Lange's book signing tour for his book, "Too Fat To Fish".  For the New Jersey book signing they cut to a familiar face waiting in line, Bumblefoot.  He said something to the effect. "Hi, this is Ronny, Bumblefoot, whatever the f--k you wanna call me, from Guns N' Roses.  I just wanna congratulate Artie Lange on his #1 book.  Congratulations!"  That's like the 3rd time Ron has come up either during the Stern show or on Howard TV in the past couple months.

GNR was referenced in the show Californication last night.  The main character (David Duchovany) who is a writer has had writer's block and was being interviewed by a DJ (Henry Rollins) and the DJ said something like "Hope it doesn't take you 10 years to write another book like it is taking GNR to put out their latest album"...some shit like that...it was not that funny...I think the writer of the show likes GNR because this is the show that they featured Tommy's "Light of Day" although the incorporation of GNR was just another rip on the album's delay...At least they are fucking relevant!!!  This album will be huge...the mystique of the album has trumped the album itself...Axl's plan is in full effect and working just like he wants it....


This was the bit from Californication

DJ:-
"Some folk have compared the wait for your new novel to the decade plus wait from the new Guns N Roses album which one do you think will see the light of day first?"

Hank:-
"I would certainly hope I beat Guns N Roses to the punch because i want to get on Oprah book club" then there was some other stuff about Oprah

There was another GN'R reference in the show a couple of episodes after that one.  Hank's in a meeting with his agent and someone who works for his publisher, and the letter asks him, "So Hank, how is Chinese Democracy coming along?"
I didn't find either references too insulting... I actually thought it was just a bit of light-hearted banter that Axl probably laughed at himself.

There was an Axl Rose mention on ESPN's "Around The Horn" today.  Tiger Woods recently had a baby boy that they named Charlie Axel Woods.  The question was posed, which name would you call the boy, Charlie or Axel (since Tiger obviously isn't Woods real first name).  Woody Paige didn't like the name Axel, saying "what is this like Axl Rose?"  To which Jay Marriotti responded, "yes I like that.  Axl Rose, a little rock and roll vibe".  These aren't specific quotes, but it was something to that effect.

over the last 4 or 5 days, ive seen multiple Nascar commercials on ESPN which have Welcome To The Jungle playing the entire time.  No words, no intro, it just comes right in with the opening guitar and the song plays throughout the entire commercial.  Then at the end its just "Nascar 2009", almost like " enough said ".   Im not a nascar fan really but the commercial is cool and obviously with WTTJ on it I stop and stare at the tv every time its on.

Just to clear this up....  That's NOT a GNR reference, that's a reference to the original 1981 My Bloody Valentine film, in which the character was named Axel.  Yes, this 3D movie is yet another shitty remake, like every fucking horror film these days

The falling leaves, Stewie walking down the street, trashing the hotel room, the grave RIP Stewie, playing acoustic guitar, falling off the bridge, floating down into the water, the girls on swings and the swings become empty. It is subtle, but it is there. I read about this on mygnr and I watched for myself.

Axl only smashes a telephone in Patience.  No hotel rooms are ever trashed in any known Guns N' Roses music videos.

I can name at least two other music videos by other musical groups that show them playing an acoustic guitar.

I don't recall seeing any bridge in any GN'R video.

Leaves fall, it's what they do.  I'm sure Stewie wasn't the first to ever walk down a street.  If one of the stores had a sign above that said "GUNS", I might be able to follow your logic.

I have watched the GNR videos enough times to see that the person who made Stewie's video is a creative genius who pays tribute to the great romantic videos of the late 80's and early 90's. Satire is subtle, it is not exclusively GNR but I can see the subtle references by Stewie's expressions. Falling leaves is a metaphor for NOVEMBER RAIN. Throwing the phone is taken straight out of PATIENCE. When Stewie is descending in the water it is so DON'T CRY. The abandoned swings are so ESTRANGED. Seth Mac Farlane is 35. I am sure that he was watching all those epic music videos back in the day.

Great summary. there were AXL/GNR mentions in past episodes of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. YES DEAR and that old show of Christiana Applegate's back in the late 1990's where she wanted to name her son after Axl and she was a GNR fan. She had to miss the concert because she was going into labor and she said, "Don't worry we'll see Gunsnroses again, they're like the ROLLING STONES. they'll be around forever."

Christina Appegate had a show called Jesse. The episode I remember was from Feb 2000 and was called Jesse' Gives Birth. It was really funny because she was 17 and pregnant and wearing an AXL ROSE bandana.

No... sadly, my husband was determined that our son's name had to sound good coming over the loud speaker during football games.  All we could agree on was Zack.  Our daughter was going to be named Patience because that was/is our song.  We had planned that since 1989 when we first got together.  My mother had other plans though.  She knew a woman with that name that she did not like at all, so she swore she'd call her Pat if we named her Patience.  We wound up with a mixture of my maiden name, Meredith, and my husband's middle name, Daniel:  Meredith Danielle.  We call her Dani.

But when we renew our vows one day, we are playing Patience.  Didn't get to the first time around.  Parents had a fit, and we were young, and they were paying, so ya know...  Next time, we're doing what we want!!!

Thanks!  As for the name, it's not that she didn't like it.  She just associated it with someone she didn't like.  The song?  They all liked it, but had a problem with us playing GnR in the church!!!  Go figure!  Also, back then, I think both sets of parents associated that song with our teenage relationship, which was like hell in a handbasket, and they didn't want any reminders!  14 years later, it's a reminder of how far we've come!

As I recall, Bud tries to get Kelly's attention and says something like: "Hey, isn't that Guns N' Roses on the TV? Doesn't that Axl-guy ever wear a shirt??!    :)

On the morning news channel 11, Jillian Barbare (whatever her last name is now), was talking about her little girl liking to dance to this one particular song (something really dumb can't remember the song).

She did a interpretation of how she dances, and said she dances "just like Axl Rose." Jillian was fully doing the serpent Axl dance. Thought it was cool.

... I also had the thought that for having a kid not too long ago she was looking damn fine. Total milf. She is maybe wearing too much makeup on her face, probably hiding the age but, I would have so much fun with her. Howard Stern and Axl fan? A chick earns a point just for that. 2 if she plays videogames.
... 3 if she too is a geek. Remember this you single dudes out there. Megan Fox is a total geek. Fine looking ladies and geeks are not mutually exclusive.

That would be a Blade Runner reference first and foremost.

As regards the Married with Children episode, I seem to recall Bud sold Kelly a pair of sunglasses that would enable her to see a shirtless Axl.  There was another episode in which Al participated in some type of Live Aid gig.  IIRC, he dressed up like a rocker and dubbed himself Axl Bundy.

Ellen Degeneres had a sitcom called Ellen that once had an episode titled 'Guns N' Ellen'.

GN'R once was the answer to a Wheel of Fortune puzzle.

They had an Axl + Slash skit on a Fox show called The Newz.  It starred Jennifer Aniston as a groupie.  She and another groupie stowed away in one of the band's gear crates.

It was quite an extensive list, as Lily had been quite wild in the 80's and 90's. Serena made a face, and said "SLASH? SERIOUSLY?' Lily just smirked, yes.  When Lily showed the abridged list to Rufus, there was Slash's name. I thought it was funny that the only person Serena found to be repulsive on the List was Slash. :hihi:

Yea....that MWC stuff is starting to come back....about a shirtless Axl. The sunglasses part sounds right.

However, the Axl Bundy stuff, was, he was gonna fly stand-by to Hawaii with his family, decided he wanted in first class and faked being a rocker. He said he was Axl Bundy from "Socks N' Shoes" or maybe Shoes N' Socks, I forget what exactly it was.

Two obscure GNR finds...on radio, the conservative talk radio show, The Michael Medved Show, used You Could be Mine and Paradise City as separate lead-ins from commercial.
and on tv, while watching an old British sit-com called Waiting for God, a nerdy guy trying to be a bad boy to impress some chick, rode up on a motorcycle, yes, wearing the Guns N' Roses t-shirt that had the big skull on the front.  I saw that the show was filmed in 1994.

"Young Mums Mansion: Here Come The Dads"...;- Trashy TV at it's worst  :yes:.

Completely random weird one:

Commercial for those "Beaches resorts" vacations came on TV....and about 1/2 way through there was a girl wearing a baby blue Guns n Roses shirt...the old Skull with top hat logo.

I caught it quick while watching and had to rewind the commercial on our DVR to make sure I'd really seen what I thougt I'd seen.

On a recent 20-20 Special on Keith Urban, they reviewed his ideal play list. Keith Urban's play list included "Welcome to the Jungle." He said something about liking to play the song ballad-style on his piano.

This isn't exactly a TV reference, but there is a Broadway musical called Rock of Ages about the hair metal bands of the 80's.The show's writer Chris D'Arienzo said that the music of the era reminded him of "guys wanting to kick my ass." But he quickly realized that APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION is a great album,"even thought I was pushed into a locker while it was playing.  There are no GNR songs in the musical, but the article is in the May 2009 edition of SPIN magazine right next to the Duff McCagan article. You never know how GNR can inspire a person to create more great art! :hihi:

Ok so this isn't too random but not many people will know! This morning I had a meeting at my work place , Best Buy. We watch this district mandated videos that are kinda cheesy/funny and help promote the upcoming work season. Anyways they have a little dog kinda like the one that used to make fun of all the celebs , his name escapes me. Anyways the video opens up and this girl is like SO! Are you guys ready to the biggest news to come to Best Buy! and the dog comes out of no where with a copy of CD in his hand and is like " Guns N' Roses , FLOPS! So much for partnering with Axl!" I guess Best Buy is ticked at their revenue from the album so they placed a little satire in their video. Stupid , but funny none the less.

I noticed there were a lot of people who worked at Best Buy or knew someone who worked at Best Buy were posting here prior to and soon after the albums release, but haven't said much of late.  Could just be coincidental, I had the feeling though that Best Buy couldn't be happy with how it all worked out.  Especially if things pick up after the exclusivity ends.

Obviously things could've been handled much differently and better on both sides.  Unfortunately though I think this deal was doomed for Best Buy from the start, due to the major economic dowturn.  Even if the promo, marketing was amped up 1000% I'm not sure they would've done as well as they imagined.  In a way, they could be just using GNR as an excuse.  There were many factors.

They just played a bit of Chinese Democracy at the LA Lakers vs. Houston Rockets NBA game on ABC. It wasn't by ABC, but by the actual arena's music playing before the team shot free throws. Also, I found it a bit ironic that they were currently interviewing Yao Ming on the bench (a Chinese native).

I saw a really intense political play at the Goodman Theater called ROCK AND ROLL. It was about the failure of communism. At a really intense part of the play I was thrilled to hear Uncle Axl's voice singing DON'T CRY. It brought a tear to my eye. This play was originally in London then Broadway. On Broadway they couldn't use DON't CRY for licensing reasons. I AM SO HAPPY they were able to use it here in Chicago!

Professor North says, "The Raiders style themselves as bad boys; Guns N' Roses really promotes that.  The band represents what the players need to emulate when they step onto the field:  heightened masculinity and ruggedness."

Oh yeah!  We hit the jackpot here.

Axl is a staple of primetime television programming on Wednesdays.

In the new Patricia Heaton sitcom, "The Middle" one of the characters is named AXL!!!!!

8:30/7:30 Central on ABC.

The show is set in Indiana.

Someone from TMZ (who bases their entire existence around stalking celebrities and pop stars) complaining about something being too "poppy"??

Just a follow up on my post from yesterday:


CHARACTER BIO

Axl, the oldest son of Frankie and Mike Heck, was conceived during what might be remembered as the Guns 'n' Roses period in the Heck household. He might be a typical teenage jock who eats his mom and dad out of house and home, but do you know many teenage boys who like walking around the house in their underwear? Yeah, neither do we.

I don't know if it makes a difference but in case it does I don't want that TMZ kid to get blamed for a word I used.

That show was replayed on the weekend after the original aired and I believe the term the TMZ kid actually used was "pop rock".

Either way, he didn't seem to be a fan of Mr. Levine's music.

Just saw an episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien (I think it was from Thursday night).  They did a sketch about Barbershop Quartets and Conan dressed up as an old time member and told some ladies that his grandfather used to sing a song on the circuit.  He then belted out the lyrics to Welcome to the Jungle.

It only lasted 30 seconds or so, but it's something.

It's actually the featured video on the website right now.  The GNR part comes on with 2:05 remaining.

Then he starts talking like you're supposed to if you're "cool", and goes on to say the vaccine isn't cool because kids and old people are getting it!  :hihi:

Chinese Democracy gets mentioned (and the album artwork displayed)  on national TV and it's not some bullshit negative thing. It could be a lot worse!

right... so you think it's "cool" to blame swine flu on axl rose?  to joke about him starting and spreading diseases? 

also, he didn't really say anything nice about the music.  and since we all know the music is great and legendary, that means he went out of his way NOT to say nice things he must have been thinking.  instead, he cracked jokes about axl trying to make the world sick.  sorry if i didn't LOL or ROTFL like you did.

Are you serious? Has the concept of humor ever been explained to you?

I would say nine out of ten people who saw that realize it's a joke!

It seems like you're the only one who thinks Axl is actually the origin of swine flu and you got offended!

Or maybe you just don't have a sense of humor....


He didn't say anything nice about the music? He didn't mention the music at all!

He was talking about a fucking vaccine.



You really need to pick your battles. There's a lot worse things said about Axl, and some of it are done by so called fans...

Honestly I love the show and not more than 3 months ago joined his web forum and made a thread about Guns N' Roses being on the show I know it wouldn't happen but I thought at least the guys monitoring the sight might say something and that might have been the case but who knows it might be that he secretly has some taste but only Steven knows  :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

Would love to see Axl and Steven talk though I think the audience would turn on Steven if they got in a debate about well anything GN'R and beyond :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

Yeah, I don't think you quite "get" what the show is all about.  It's completely satirical, and I'm betting you may not have a full comprehension of what that means.  The other "pricks," as you refer, are often the ones who Stephen Colbert is mocking; but I suppose that went a little over your head. 

Anyway, pretty cool, would love to see Axl sit down with Colbert for a few minutes to just shoot the shit.  Colbert is a pretty clever guy; so is Axl - it would be interesting.  A PR move like this would be awesome, something cooler than say a stint on Conan or Letterman where viewers really don't care that much about the music act. 

Thanks for the post,

Cheers,

Andrew

My girlfriend's jealous cause I talk about you 24/7

the comedian isn't making fun of axl. Who the hell would find it funny any more if he was with the joke.
everyone knows axl didn't create the flu, he isn't even a virologist.
it's a biting satire on some part of the media and its victims that blame axl for anything.

yeah, well as far as i'm concerned, he's just a punk in the press who likes to start shit by printing lies and starting controversy.  axl didn't start the swine flu.  i'm not sure how saying he did equates to a joke -- or at least not one worth laughing at.  guess his amazing brand of comedy just goes over my head.

hey, here's a joke... what has two arms, two legs and a giant asshole face?  stephen colbert.  he started the swine flu. 

I love your posts dude!!!

Seriously though, Where is the Axl Rose cult that you attend?  you and your cult friends must be the only people that are allowed to speak of the great one.  :hihi:

You have some cheek attacking jarmo after he has stood up for you SO many times when you're talking shit.

dude, i have nothing but the highest respect for jarmo.  in many ways, he's like the tenth member of the band.  so we happen to disagree on whether or not it's cool for this one comic to score a cheap laughs off axl.  we don't have to agree with each other 100% of the time.  i totally look up to jarmo for all he does for the fans and the band, and i'm really grateful for the times he's stood up for me, even though i don't think a fan supporting his favorite band should be considered "talking shit."
it feels like ur kinda like stan in that eminem song, not cool

Jon...

For now, you win 7 internetz, but I look forward to shaking your hand one day.

the comedian isn't making fun of axl. Who the hell would find it funny any more if he was with the joke.
everyone knows axl didn't create the flu, he isn't even a virologist.
it's a biting satire on some part of the media and its victims that blame axl for anything.
shame that a loyal axl fan like yourself fail to see it.  :no:


oh please... your'e just making excuses for that comedian because he's famous and trendy and everyone has to pretend to like him.  but your logic falls apart... if he wanted to make fun of the press for the way they constantly demonize axl, then why didn't he say THE PRESS created swine flu and tried to blame it on axl?  okay, i get that.  it's funny.   he could have reprised the rant from 'get in the ring' but making it about members of the press creating swine flu.  to me, that's  joke. 

i fail to see how just saying axl made swine flu to sicken the world is really a joke about how axl didn't create swine flu to sicken the world and instead someone else altogether did, and the whole joke was supposed to be about the press picking on axl.  sorry.  doesn't make much sense.  nice try though.  come again!

stop defending haters, bitches and punks.  is a little respect for a musical genius too much to ask for?

It is called satire, and you have to have an IQ over 10 to understand that whatever is said is not intended literally.  Everyone else here seems to get the joke except for you.  Just coming out and saying it the way that you thought it should have been said wouldn't have been funny... it would have been a statement.

For example... do you think that South Park is making fun of Jews or Jew-haters when they make Jew jokes?  (take into account that the characters saying them are intentionally ignorant, hateful people).


Title: Re: GN'R references in movies and on TV
Post by: cotis on October 09, 2009, 11:32:00 AM
My final answer is.....YES! Yes they are making fun of them because the creators of South Park are anti-Semitic Nazi's who hate all Jews.

I think I hit hte nail on the head right?

the difference is that colbert has a HISTORY of going after axl.  it's like he has a personal axe to grind, and he's using his tiny bit of media attention to mock someone i respect and admire.  one time he made a joke about how long it was taking to finish cd, and in a very sarcastic tone, he mocked axl for taking extra time to tweak the reverb on a backing vocal track.

oh, how his well-trained studio audience howled.  but his joke was stupid and didn't make any sense.  obviously, there's far more to mixing and mastering and tweaking an album than putting more reverb on a backing vocal track.  anyone with half a brain knows that far more was going on, like rerecording some rhythm guitar parts with bumblefoot.  a little bit of reverb on a backing vocal track wouldn't really make that much of a difference at all.  so he scored a cheap laugh by lying about what axl was doing, and pretending like he has the faintest clue of how to mix an album.  he made an ass of himself and brought his audience down to that level. 

these are just the two examples i know of.  but i don't watch his stupid shit show.

When it takes so long to finish an album, people are going to make jokes about it.  Even fellow fans (who had the album pre-ordered as soon as their local stores had it on their database), have followed every bit of news over the past decade, gone to as many shows as possible and are planning on attending others - like me - made jokes.  That's all they were... jokes.  It wasn't a declaration of hatred, otherwise I wouldn't have done all of that other stuff.

Do you REALLY think people takes everything he says as the truth? He's a comedian, not a news reporter... There's a difference.

You obviously haven't grasped the concept of his show.

Oh yeah!  We hit the jackpot here.

Axl is a staple of primetime television programming on Wednesdays.

In the new Patricia Heaton sitcom, "The Middle" one of the characters is named AXL!!!!!

8:30/7:30 Central on ABC.

The show is set in Indiana.

Yeah, surprised more people haven't commented on this. Someone who works on that show is an Axl/ GN'R fan.

Another clever reference to Indiana is the youngest kid's name, Brick. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is, of course, referred to as "The Brickyard".

There was another GNR mention in the latest episode of "That Metal Show" on VH1 Classic.  During the show they have a segment called "Stump The Trunk", where audience members ask Eddie Trunk metal/hard rock trivia questions and if he gets them wrong they win a prize.  This week some lady from the UK asked the following GNR question. 

"Which song from GNR's Chinese Democracy was co-written by former Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck?" 

Of course the lady should've referred to Robin as former GNR guitarist, not NIN.  Anyhow easy question for any true fan of GNR, apparently Eddie doesn't fall under that category though because he got it wrong.  First he said he didn't even know all the songs on the album and he guessed "There Was A Time".  While he was thinking it over, comedian/co host Don Jamieson joked "Does he get 13 years to guess the answer?"

Not pleased with Eddie's answer, thought he was a bigger fan.  But in his defense, that kind of shows the lack of exposure or push that this album was/has been given.  This type of thing should be common knowledge, not just to us "forum geeks", especially since "Better" was the 2nd and last single (so far) off the album.

also on the sitcom jesse with christina applegate, there's a flashback from where she was pregnant and they were supposed to go to a GNR concert in manhattan, so there's a couple of gnr references and jokes about it, like when they are missing the show 'cause she's going into labour her sister says "don't worry, it's guns n roses, they're like the stones, they are gonna be around forever"  :P

On the Suite Life of Zack and Cody they did a parody of November Rain that was called Hot December Snow. you can see it on youtube. I tivoed it, and I love to watch Dylan do his Axl impression. " When I'm with my best friend, I feel a warm wind blow. And when we buy a doughnut, we both poney up the dough. But friends are not  forever, well that just the way things go, and it's tough to make an angel in the hot December snow."

I was asleep and my husband said Axl's on TV and I said, ha ha you are just trying to wake me, he said no I'm telling the truth, so I sat up and looked and he was telling the truth, he was actually performing with Steven Tyler.  Anyway it was an ad to order some Rock N Roll Hall of Fame CD, but through out the commercial it showed him a few different times.  Anyone aware of this CD or seen the add before?

He is apparently on this compilation with more than just one artist I believe.  I was also half asleep.  Now I could be mistaken, but I am 99% sure that is what I saw unless I was dreaming lol...

OK after further investigation it seems I must of just seen Steven Tyler on the commercial and apparently I was 99% wrong, sorry guys :yes:

You're wearing a Guns N' Roses t-shirt. What do you make of Leona Lewis doing the theme song?

Sam: I said I wanted Axel. Jim looked at me and thought I was an idiot. Guns N' Roses could have fit in I'm sure.

I was reading an article on yahoo sports about the 10 worst hockey trades of the decade and it had this tidbit in it:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/The-most-lopsided-NHL-trades-of-the-last-decade;_ylt=AtWBJxZGpS3lXWhf6.s8Lkx7vLYF?urn=nhl,209570

7. Philadelphia Flyers traded Patrick Sharp(notes) and Eric Meloche(notes) to the Chicago Blackhawks for Matt Ellison(notes) and a 3rd round selection in 2006. (Dec. 5, 2006)

Now, this could have easily been the Blackhawks stealing Kris Versteeg(notes) from the Boston Bruins in exchange for Brandon Bochenski(notes) in 2007. But Flyers Goal Scored By ... offers compelling evidence that this is the bigger fleecing:

    After two good seasons playing in Hockey East, Sharp turned pro and joined the Phantoms for what would have been his junior year in college. The next season he split time between the Flyers and Phantoms pretty evenly, and the during the lockout he helped the Phantoms win the Calder Cup with 21 points in 21 playoff games after a 53 point regular season. And then when Sharp finally looked ready for the big leagues Bobby Clarke made one of the bigger mistakes of his tenure and traded him away for a guy that is now in the KHL and a third round pick that we then traded to Montreal for two other picks, who turned out to be current Phantom Jonathan Matsumoto(notes) and busted goalie Jakub Kovar.

    [...]

    He's exactly the kind of guy you want sitting next to you on the bench, which is the type of guy the Flyers have traditionally tried to acquire, not tried to deal away for a Guns 'n Roses poster and half used phone card.

Especially when it's a poster for "Chinese Democracy."

This is most likely just sheer coincidence, but I was just watching an episode of The Twilight Zone - "Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up".  In a 5 minute sequence the phrases "like children hiding in a closet, can't tell what's going on outside", "parlor trick", and "off the beaten track" were used. 

The phrase about children hiding in a closet wasn't word for word to the lyrics from "Breakdown" but it was close enough.  Again, probably just a coincidence, but I took notice of it.


And just to clarify, the Twilight Zone episode came out in the 1960's, so obviously if there was any connection it'd be on Axl's end.

One more thing if you wanna stretch it even further.  The alien in the episode reveals "hidden hands up his sleeves" when he lets his identity be known.

Iconic? Nah, GN'R were just one of the biggest selling artists in the world, that's all. Guns n' roses, then C?line Dion, then Leona Lewis, that says it all. By the way, I haven't seen Avatar, and I won't see it. Just not interested, that's all... Maybe later...

I said this before but I will say it again regarding Sam wearing the GN'R T and Avatar. I fucking love Avatar. I am happily married and shit but she knows I have fallen for Neytiri. Cameron she have been given Chinese Democracy and been given a serious heart to heart with him. Got him high on some Pandoran weed and played If The World for him. The song would have been so perfect. As it stands the song I see you, the music for the song is played many times throughout the film so I get that too but If The World would have just been much cooler and strangely fitting.

"Vaughn uses the music perfectly to punctuate whatever action he has going on and that moment is an incredible ramp up to some serious ass kicking. At one moment, the audience burst into clapping along with Guns & Roses NOVEMBER RAIN ? a once in a lifetime event to be sure; I mean come on, that?s not going to happen again in an ordinary theater..."

i dont know if the song will be in the theatrical version.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty funny.  Jimmy's obviously a fan and I view this as a tribute of sorts.  He could've picked ANY singer, but he went with Axl.

The clip I saw on the show the other night can be seen on the shows website. 

In part 1, it comes in at about 1:50 and Axl "plays the clip out" in part 2.

The ending of the album "ADULTS!" released yesterday by Bomb The Music Industry! on Quote Unquote Records has the riff from SCOM being played on guitar at the end.

They also played the riff from Coma live at their 2007 CD release show.

And their old band The Arrogant Sons Of Bitches released a song on the album "Pornocracry" in 2000 called "November Rain" that was not a cover. (Which i had nothing to do with but I did play on other songs on that album).

Also, I am watching "The Dead Pool" and did anyone notice that the rock star character, before he died, was filming a music video to WTTJ and doing a horrible job of lip-syncing?

Finnish TV show "Choir War" [Edit: I see it's actually called "Clash of the Choirs"]. They have music celebrities from different cities and towns pick their own choirs from "regular people", then they go on tv to compete against each other. The choirs perform, TV audience votes. Today Nightwish bassist Marco Hietala (dressed up to look like Axl) put his choir to perform Paradise City. It was not a very good rendition, but enough to make them go through to the next round. It will probably be on Youtube or somewhere else on the net soon.

I've watched a couple episodes of "The Middle" recently.  I wondered if there was an Axl Rose tie in.  The show also takes place in Indiana, so either one of the writers is a big GNR fan or they're going along with the Indiana/Axl connection, or both.

Don't know if anyone remembers the tv show My So Called Life, with Claire Danes and Jared Leto. I was watching it the other week and when Claire dyed her hair red, her dad made a comment about wanting to look like Axl Rose or something along those lines lol

Last night on the latest episode of "That Metal Show", Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson started out the show talking about Guns N' Roses being back in action and touring Asia and Canada.  Eddie commented on how Chinese Democracy had come out about a year ago and didn't really meet "expectations" but now they were out playing shows and getting positive reviews.  Don mentioned how the Tokyo show was the longest in the history of GNR at 3 hours 37 minutes and that they were as fierce as ever.  Jim said it got off to a rocky start with Axl punching out a paparazzi at LAX, but they all agreed that that's what they want to see Axl doing.  Being a true rockstar.  The episode isn't online yet, but I'd imagine it will be in the next couple days.  It's right at the beginning of the show, first thing they discuss, for just a couple minutes.  It's season 4, episode 4, with Joe Lynn Turner.

Not sure if this was ever mentioned, but since I just saw it for the first time.

During the 3rd season of Married with Children, the Bundy's are over at the Rhodes' house to watch VHS movies, because the Bundy's only had Beta (yeah,it's that old). Anyway, Kelly asks to use the phone. She returns a while later explaining she called all over the world trying to track down "that rock group, Guns N' Roses"

Chelsea Handler was referring to or mentioning the ping pong game Axl played with Scarlett Johanssen on her Febuary 28th show which was her 35th bday.  Tried to find the link, but was unable.  Anyway it was surprising to see photo of Axl on her show.  Good to see Axl being mentioned again, the world was to quiet without him lol.  Go Axl.  It would be good if Chelsea invited Axl to her show.

watched this documentary called virgin school about a 26 year old, socially awkward englishman called james, he was a virgin and it told the very moving story about his life and how he finally lost his virginity. In the end of it, after 3 months of sexual therapy he lost his virginity to his sex coach, now to the reference, when he was about to lost his virginity and was undressing/taking his clothes off while dancing sexy he had a GN'R shirt on. (he probably had been thinking 'bout sexy being hungry for something that he hadn't had yet)  ;D

There is a sitcom called "The Middle" and the couple's oldest son is named Axl. He is named after the concert that he was conceived at. Also, I am watching "The Dead Pool" and did anyone notice that the rock star character, before he died, was filming a music video to WTTJ and doing a horrible job of lip-syncing? All of the band members were at the funeral except Izzy. Pretty cool. : ok:


I have 'the dead pool' on video (not because I am a fan of Clint Eastwood, but beacuase I am a GnR fan  ;D).
The rock star character is Jim Carrey in his very early days  ;)

Andrew Dice Clay was on The Howard Stern Show last week and made a few GNR mentions. He was explaining why his reality show failed, and how the producers told him they were going to show an image change episode where he would dress up as a rapper.  Andrew said his 16 year old kid spoke up and asked "if Axl or Slash was doing a show, would you ask them to do an image change?"  He said he gave in begrudginly because he was under contract.

Later on, he spoke about the difficulty in finding competent managers and how his attorney was his manager, Danny Hayes.  He said that Danny was able to get Axl's album out when nobody else could because, "you know he's tough to deal with".

Small mention on CNN.com regarding videos.

It's the Lady Gaga Telephone article.

http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/Music/03/16/music.videos.future/index.html?hpt=Mid

But with major record labels now seeing a downward trend in sales, "the big conglomerates don't have the money to pay for big music videos, which is why we don't have the Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses kind of video anymore," said Saul Austerlitz, author of "Money for Nothing: A History of the Music Video."

That's right.

The one guy said: "There was Jean-Michel Basquiat, then there was Christian Hosoi, and then there was Axl Rose, you know what i mean?" I thought that was a pretty cool compliment

There was a small Axl Rose mention on The Howard Stern Show earlier this week.  Courtney Love was a guest and Howard asked her if she had trouble remembering the lyrics while performing.  She said she did sometimes so she used a teleprompter.  And the "embarrassing part" was she "bummed it from Axl Rose."  Then she laughed wildly.

Before the interview, Howard was pissed at Courtney because she was an hour late.  And he was talking about how tough it must be to be her publicist, or someone like her. That made me think of Axl too, just because of the lateness.

We listened to it twice

I was watching "Behind The Music" last night on Courtney Love before falling to sleep and she mentioned Axl during a bumper prior to a commercial.  They were setting up her relationship with Kurt Cobain and she said that Kurt and Axl Rose had the 2 best noses in LA.  But she wasn't going to mate with Axl Rose. 

That's all I saw though.  I fell asleep before the actual part came on, so I don't know if there was any more to it than that.  I never knew Axl had such a nice nose.

This is a really really short reference so bare with me.  ;)

In the UK, there is a Vodophone advertisement where it's advertising summer events, not only music. It shows formula 1, I believe along with models on the catwalk. Halfway through, it shows you the Download 2006 stage while GN'R are performing and you can see Axl standing at the centre.

As I said it's really quick so if you want to look for it, you should notice the Download Stage (the red one in 2006). And then pause, then you can see GN'Rs' banner and equipment from afar, with Axl standing there.

It's also a far shot, just thought I'd mention it as it's really random.  :)

In Camp Rock 2 (the movie and the soundtrack), during a song called "Heart and Soul" the line:

"If you can scream like Axl Rose,
or you can sing like Christina, show after show

If you've got heart and soul
You can rock and roll"

About 3/4 of the way through the song.

My kids get all excited when they hear the Axl mention.

Edit: The full lyrics if anyone cares:

Oh!
Yeahh
Oh right
Mmmmhmm

Gather round guys,
It?s time to start listenin?
Pratice makes perfect but
Perfect?s not workin?
There?s a lot more to music
Than knowing where your cue?s gonna be

You can play all the right notes
But that don?t mean you?re moving me
But if you can jump like David Lee Roth
Or pump your fist like you?re Bruce the Boss

If you?ve got heart and soul
You can rock n? roll
Rock n? roll

Strum it, drum it, slide across and run it
The stage is your home if you learn how to own it
Like the greats did
There?s no way that you can fake it

You?ve gotta feel the beat before you can move
Even though you?re not wearing blue suede shoes
And making mistakes
But that won?t matter
If you can swagger like ol? Mick Jagger

If you?ve got heart and soul
You can rock n? roll
You can rock n? roll

Solo
[INSTRUMENTAL]

If you live and die for the music inside
If the 1-4-5 never gets old
Then you can rock n? roll
Rock n? roll

Alright, now take it low
Now I need the spotlight to hit me,
Right here
As the crowd starts to cheer
I need the fan to blow right through my rockstar hair,
Right here

If you can scream like Axl Rose
Or sing like Xtina show after show
If you?ve got heart and soul
You can rock n? roll, yeah
If you?ve got heart and soul
You can rock n? roll
You can rock n? roll
Ooo yeah
You can rock n? roll

Unfortunately for me....I have one of those "10 year old girls" in my house (actually, she's 8  ).

And the 3 kids do have influence over what music gets played in our car, especially when we're doing stuff as a family. :)

But I did think it was a neat tribute from a source you wouldn't necessarily expect.

I actually noticed the lyric this past Saturday when we were headed out to the local theme park and we had the Camp Rock 2 soundtrack in.  The funny part is:  We'd gone to the Jonas Brothers/Camp Rock 2 concert with the kids on August 13th, they played the song, and I didn't notice at all.  I guess the earplugs I had in might have had something to do with it.

I doubt the Jonas Brothers will amount to much more than a "New Kids on the Block" type of boy band.  We'll see.....

I hope parents don't let them get to much involved with that as we all know it's just part of Disney making a crap load of money I can't begin to explain how many good things they runined but some they did well.

I hope they don't fund for the GNR tour in the US

And then gives another example asking "So when you're at a Guns N' Roses concert, you're like, yeah, yeah, Paradise City...when are they going to rock me some Chinese Democracy?"  Barney says, "Axl has really matured as a song writer, Ted."

Everytime there's some tension in the air, it plays the very beggining of Right Next Door To Hell - actually only Duff's bass riff in a loop. And I always wait for the whole song and it never appears. :P

Well, he had Ron on his TV show last year and asked him a lot of questions, including if he could get Axl to come on the show, too... so I'm pretty sure he's a fan. Usually during the panel segments they discuss current events topics, rather than an interview format.

Not sure if this belongs here, but watching the latest episode of "That Metal Show" on VH1 Classic and they had guys on from Tesla.  One of the guys (guitarist?) from Tesla is claiming G N' R ripped them off and that their demo for a song called "Better Off Without You" became "Patience."  Claims that the whole end of the song is a complete rip off of their song.  The guy said he is not sure if was Tom Zutaut or someone at Geffen (G N' R and Tesla shared the same label at the time) got hold of their demo and gave it to G N' R.  I think this is total bullshit and Eddie Trunk stood up a bit for Axl and said "well if that was true why don't you sue them?"

Ted: Your telling me if your at a GN'R concert rocking out to Paradise City your sitting there going give me some Paradise City?
Barney: Well Ted Axl has really matured as a song writer..

Later in the episode a girl tells Ted how she was arrested for burning a Police car at a GN'R show. When he is shocked she rolls here eyes N' says "Chinese Democracy"..

I was watching "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" last night and I thought I saw a Guns N' Roses poster in Audrey's room.  It was real quick, and in the background, but it looked like them.  Can anybody confirm or deny this?

Yes, it is.

It's the same picture that's used on the back of the Greatest Hits album, but in full colour, instead of silver. It's real quick, and I watched the movie a few days ago, and I still smile when I see that.  :)

Another radio reference. I was listening to WEEI Sports talk radio Boston/Providence and they used "Chinese Democracy" as a bumper coming out of a break. They played a bit of the intro, Axl's scream, and some of the guitar solo. I don't listen to the station very often but Stern is on vacation, so I don't know if this is a regular thing or not. Regardless, it was cool to hear.

On "The Celebrity Apprentice" last night, John Rich was tasked to make a marketing campaign for Retro 7-Up.  He was given the decade of the 80's, and used an Axl Rose lookalike (kind of) in his commercial.  The guy had the bandana, that was Axl-esque.  And he was skinny, but other than that he didn't look much like Axl.  But you could tell what they were going for.  And the Axl and Madonna auditions weren't supposed to be dead on, as the REAL Dee Snider was supposed to stand apart from those two.

A couple Axl and GNR mentions though, were pretty cool.

It is, but it still is a little odd that nothing happened.  Paparazzi are always out to make a buck, so I'm just surprised a big lawsuit didn't come out of it.  They never see the error of their own ways.  I guess in this instance, he did.

Things like this just makes me like this band more and more, go Axl!
While I love to see Axl in action, the guy at the end does have a point.  How does nothing come of that?  If I had punched someone at the airport in such a public way, I think things would've gone down a little differently.


That was one sided as hell.

Why wouldn't somebody file a report if he was attacked? Maybe because he's not an innocent victim as portrayed in this clip...?

Yeah, so run over and drop him...haha  Did the photographer hit the girl??  If not, have you ever heard of taking the higher road? 

Have you?

Do you know anything about the situation?

But pointing fingers is easy to do.

The "girl", is Beta, she is a most important figure in Axl's life and is just as prominent in the Guns and Roses world, did you not really pay close attention?  Everybody knows Axl would never allow her or any member of his entourage to be pestered period.  Looks to me as if someone overstepped their boundries, and got what they had coming, not to mention he was warned once.

Okay, I know it's not movies or tv...but whilst reading the ESPN.com fantasy football running back projections for 2011, it included this line:

Chris Johnson:  2011 Outlook: It's all about the expectations game. When Johnson was a relative unknown exploding to become fantasy's MVP in '09, he was the greatest thing since "Appetite For Destruction." When he was many folks' No. 1 overall selection for '10 and managed "only" 1,364 yards rushing, he was more disappointing than "Chinese Democracy."

BASTARDS!  :rant:

On an old Beavis and Butt Head episode entitled "Bride of Butt Head", there is a dream sequence where Butt Head walks down the aisle with his new wife.  Slash is standing at the altar a la the "November Rain" video.  It's brief but an amusing in-joke for those fast enough to catch it.

Finally was able to see it.  Gotta say though that a lot of that show seems like BS.  I believe the "bins" (i.e., storage units) are real enough, though not so sure about the one that exploded when they opened it.  I think the couple that one the GNR bin are legit but I think that Jesse (the guy that he got in a fight with on a previous episode) and Bear are bogus.  I think everyone else standing around are extras.  Plus I love that the woman criticized Jesse for bidding on a bin cause he thought stuff was valuable and then she finds the framed Appetite rape cover and thinks there's only two in the world.  And on top of all that it was a 2nd issue too!  But still cool though.

I watched that, the show looks so contrived it's ridiculous.

They apparently gloss over all the files with paperwork in but happen to look at the one document that is signed by William Bailey. (I bet they originally didn't even know who he was)

"I bet there's only like two of these and I have one of them".  lol  yeah there are only 2 copies of the banned AFD artwork in circulation.

Those other bidders for the storage units don't look real either, if they were you would see heaps of people there bidding.  I have no doubt these people buy the whole storage units contents but it probably happens formally and in an orderly manner somehwere off site and this whole auction thing and opening it up is ccompletely staged. That's what it looked like to me anyhow.

Its all for show. I am sure they spend a lot of time going threw and just show us the goods. As for Axls sig. I remember they said the first contracts he did sign that way. Changed his name shortly after, if I remember right. Not sure why he had all of Slash's awards.
As for the little bomb thing. I know it seems crazy but I know people that would pull that.

Post by: faldor on July 10, 2011, 01:20:03 PM
I was checking the guide today and saw a documentary, "Queen: The Days Of Our Lives" was on and it was narrated by Axl Rose.  I caught it about 10 minutes in and have watched about half of it and haven't seen or heard from Axl yet.  Maybe I missed him in the beginning?  Maybe he'll reappear at the end.  Anybody seen this before?  It's pretty good so far, despite the absence of Axl.

I ended up watching the rest of the documentary and there was no sign of Axl narrating.  They did show a short clip of he and Elton John performing at the Freddy Mercury tribute.  But aside from that, there was nothing.  I'm guessing he must've been on at the beginning, which I missed.  Just seems odd that they go out of their way to list him in the program credits as narrator and he's hardly in it, if at all.

Their crafty ways worked though, they suckered me into watching it.  It was good too, so I'm glad I watched it.  I was just waiting to hear from Axl and it never happened.  Strange.

Okay, I just checked youtube and Axl is indeed in the opening minutes of the doc.  Mystery solved.  He comes on at the 2:15 mark or so.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRYb-YZa_aE

Edit - I'm still a little confused.  This is NOT the same documentary I watched today.  I mean, it's basically the same story, and it's of the same name and description.  But THIS documentary says it was made in 1991, the one I saw today was made in 2004 and had no Axl narrating.  Maybe they updated it or something?  I no for sure that Roy Thomas Baker certainly looked at least 13 years older than he does in that youtube clip.  The mystery continues.

Anyway, the link provided does contain Axl's narration, so that's all that really matters I guess.

Was it just a coincidence or did they mean to somewhat make refference to Axl?

A couple GNR mentions on "That Metal Show" last night by a few guests.  The late Jani Lane (RIP) talked about how his band "Plain Jane" used to open for Guns a lot back in their days on the strip, while Warrant would open for Poison.  And once Poison and GNR got signed, the lead singer and drummer left Warrant, paving the way for Jani to join the band.

Then, Faster Pussycat's Taimie Down was on and he was asked why they never made it big like a GNR even though they had a number of hits and great songs.  He said he had no idea but said that they had some great times with GNR, when they took them out on the road.

A nice little nostalgic trip down Memory Lane of the Sunset Strip.

I also don't know who on here watches the show Supernatural. It's about two brothers who go across the country hunting down monsters. They frequently use Rock star names as their alias when posing as police or the FBI. On last week's episode, their names were "Rose and Hudson". I had a good laugh at that and was glad to see GnR get a little nod from that show after all these years.

I don't mind using their songs in movies, tv shows...

But really in a Johnson and Johnson commercial.  I mean they all have to sign off on it, the original 5. 

I am a purist is all.  I don't think they need the money, and who knows how much they made, I just didn't think Axl would ever sign off on that kinda thing.  The Harly commercial was ok, wasn't that mad, I mean Gn'R and motorcylces a good combo....

Again just my humble opinion....

Its a fantastic song, it crosses lots of boundaries, young and old, black or white, rich or poor, everybody can empathise with this song and each can relate to the lyrics. Its not selling out, its keeping a classic timeless... In case you haven't noticed, GnR do love songs, I get the biker thing, the PC video had touches of "toughness" through out it, as did the majority of AFD. But I know more people who don't care a jot about the band, but they love this song in all styles, the Taken by Trees version for the very middle class and affluent targeting John Lewis stores in the UK, being a prime example, or the one by Sheryl Crowe.

Awesome use of Sweet Child O' Mine in the series finale of The Office.
Dwight Schrute finally marries Angela.
Walking down the aisle, Sweet Child is playing.
It's an instrumental version slowed down...but it was still very nice.

On the opening episode of TMS from 2 weeks back Jason Newstead was on and he was asked what his most memorable touring experience was.  He answered the GNR/Metallica tour, because he learned what not to do and how not to act on that tour.  I took that as an obvious shot at Axl.  Not sure how else one would take it. 

And in last weeks episode they did a segment with Bumblefoot called "Origins".  He spoke about himself, some of his likes and dislikes, how he got involved in music, etc.

Not a "real" GN'R reference, but more of a funny coincidence since both songs were covered by GN'R at the same shows. The Seeker and Don't Let It Bring You Down (a cover version) are both in the movie American Beauty.

I just watched the episode and came here to say that! hahahaha

But my favorite gnr quote on HIMYM so far is on the "New is Always Better" episode where Ted says to Barney "So you're in a Guns N' Roses concert and you're like 'yeah, yeah, Paradise City, whatever...when are they gonna rock me some Chinese Democracy?'" and Barney says "Axl has really matured as a songwriter, Ted..."  :hihi:

Tuesday night I was watching a funny (and very offbeat) show on Comedy Central called "Kroll Show."
In their segment called "Rich Dicks," the two rich dicks are forced to go to a ticket counter because their private plane was messed up:

Kroll:              "Hi, we wanted to purchase a plane."
Ticket Agent:  "A real airplane?
Kroll:              "Yes, it's just that we invited Axl Rose and Tyrese onto our plane and they did some dermage..."

The whole show pokes fun at the garbage can of reality television...always fun to hear an Axl reference out there.

Thanks for the heads up and the link.  I watched the GN'R segment...to me it was basically a commercial for Marc Canter deli.  Instead of offering the items direct to fans he sells them to the TV people so they will sell them to fans for double the price or something like that.  I never understand how "reality" TV works.

Great thread!  Recently watched the first 4 seasons of BLUE BLOODS on Netflix.  Anyone else watch the show?  During one of the famous Reagan family dinner table discussions in the 4th season episode 6 there was a GN'R mention during the last scene:

JAMIE REAGAN: Hey, didn't she go to L.A. right after you guys graduated?
DANNY REAGAN: No
JAMIE REAGAN: Yeah, and then somebody swore that they saw her in a Guns N' Roses video out there, too.
DANNY REAGAN: No, that was somebody else.

Ok, so I just finished watching the new Kurt Cobain movie, "Montage of Heck."  Has anybody seen this thing?  We all know the history of the whole GNR/Nirvana thing but this movie really shines a different light on it.  From what I saw, Kurt really had a borderline  obsession with Axl and the rest of GNR.  In the movie he makes several Axl and GNR references in his home movies when he is just sitting around with his wife.  For a guy who tried to act like GNR were a waste of his time to even talk about he sure couldn't shut up about them in his private life.  I like Nirvana and his music, but it was kind of a sad movie to watch.  You can literally see him unravelling throughout the course of the film.

Kurt really looked gross in a lot of the footage from that movie.  Typical junkie. That looked to have not of showered in a while, greasy, covered in acne
He wouldn't shut up about Axl and guns.  In what seemed to be his attempt at humour....  It just came across as awkward and sad

So when a song from a band is played live at a sporting event that is broadcast on TV, does the band that wrote the song recieve any compensation?

I would imagine it would be similiar to the compensation recieved for a song being played on a radio (which is very little)

However, like you say.   There isnt one sport that doesnt play a guns song.  So all those pennies they get, have to add up

Is there an American sports event where WTTJ doesn't play?

I'm watching the Stanley Cup on paid tv with no advertising. Gives you a pretty good idea what's happening when everyone is waiting for the game to be allowed to continue after 'these messages.'


I doubt it.  Baseball maybe?

But its played at the beginning of everything.  Third downs at football games.  Coming out of timeouts in basketball.

I want to say the over playing of WTTJ at sporting events almost kills the song for me, BUT...

I still get pretty pumped to hear it played at all these events.

How cool would it be for a sporting team to take the field to Coma, rather than WTTJ

The funny thing is...

The only one that cares about what a Phoenix Coyote player thinks is Dave Mustaine...

I think if TheBaconman call up Dave and asked him to write him a little jingle he probably would.

About few days ago, I was watching a movie called Shark Night 3D (from 2011), and at near the end of the movie, there's a scene where Sheriff Sabin has this Nick guy at some boat house. He's messing with Nick and  he asks him what he'd like him to play for his last song, before he throws him in to lake with Tiger sharks. Nick requests Guns & Roses!  : ok:

I saw that too. I thought it was pretty lame. The character was trying to shock Frank Gallagher. The lame Axl comment makes me think the writer was a former groupie who didn't get chosen. SHAMELESS is usually a pretty good show. Was very disappointed at that little jab at Axl.

I'm not supporting anyone's "point" and I really don't support him taking personal jabs at another member in order to prove his "point"- personal insults add nothing to your argument.

I honestly don't watch much TV, or place much stock in any given television program so I'm not convinced this statement or potshot - is anything to be concerned about-

there are always stupid people saying stupid things on TV , radio, media and internet - I put it in this category.

You are probably right. Shameless is one of my fav shows, it is usually very well written and really exposes the reality of life on the southside of Chicago. There was another joke once where another character told Fiona that she slept with all the guys of a Gunsnroses cover band and that they all had wives and girlfriends.

Guns N' Roses, one of the best-selling hard rock bands of all time, will reunite key members including bassist Duff McKagan, left, and guitarist Slash, second from left, with front man Axl Rose (center) to play Coachella in mid-April. With summer festival season already boasting a resurgence in slots for veteran rockers, we take a look at the hard rockin' bands of the '80s then and now.

This is NOT your grandfather's cane -- unless your grandfather is super pervy or Axl Rose.

Rose has been hobbling around England this week using a walking stick, but little did we know what's under his hand is the most badass, rock 'n' roll senior citizen accessory ever.

The stick's sterling silver handle features a naked couple doing, um ... what naked couples do.

Axl's slowly recovering from his broken foot, but once he's fully healed -- he's gotta keep this thing handy.

Limping's never been so pimpin'!

New Resident Evil trailer came out today.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXpVgwzKLpE  : ok:

awesome use of paradise city, seems like they used only the vocal tracks in certain places, and axl's voice sounds flawless !!!

It sounds amazing, is this all the original vocal track from Appetite or from the re-recorded Appetite... Interesting

Sounds like it although some of the backup vocals sound suspicious

Indeed. I was wondering how is this possible: I mean, they can use the song if the band authorized, of course, but are they free to remix it like they did without the band's consent?

They probably got the permission/license to use the master tracks.

Maybe (I don't know) the final product of the trailer and use of the tracks was subject to approval by the band before release.

If that's the case, then having various channels of the final track isn't beyond possibilities either, shame it wasn't something new though  :-\

Last week on Smackdown, they did one, too.  A specific Axl rose mention.

I wonder if WWE has something planned with them.  They pretty much feature a "song" every PPV, many of them from major acts.  I can't remember an act getting this much mention who was NOT doing something with them.

WAY late..but it sorta does, if you know the RE movie story.

Racoon City, and Umbrella Corp, are her home....and, yes, it's no longer a paradise city.  But it sorta was, until all hell broke loose, and, even in its' current state (an interesting juxtaposition with the lyrics about grass being green and girls being pretty...considering it's current inhabitants)....it might be HER idea of paradise.

It's a good commercial, and I like the instrumentation they used. Reminds me a LOT of the Taken by Trees version of the song:

Tonight, Guns N Roses was a question on Jeopardy.....

"In 1996, Axl Rose sent a fax to MTV claiming THIS guitarist had left the band, and that no new music had been made since 1994."

"WHO IS SLASH?"

 ;D

Other bands referenced in the same category were Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Van Halen, and AC/DC.

Okay that went right over my head.  Is that "sarcastically" funny because Mr. Newhart and Axl are not really friends?  Or did Conan only think Bob was being sarcastically funny because Conan is known for not being a fan of Axl's??  ???

It's funny because of the unlikeliness of them knowing each other at all.


Btw, is Conan not a fan of Axl's?

I don't understand why it would be unlikely them knowing each other?  Both are well known for their varied and eclectic group of friends and acquaintances.

Conan takes potshots at Axl every chance he gets.  Has for years.  No idea what his issue is with Axl.

They don't strike me as hanging in the same friend circle.

The deadpan delivery of the line was also what made it funny.

So this happens often then? I can't remember he having any sort of "crusade" against Axl. He makes fun of most things, I wouldn't worry about that if I were Axl.

I do remember something in 2002 during the tour where Axl made a joke about Conan on stage after Conan apparently had said something.

Ive been watching Conan since around 2009 and yes he has made some Axl jokes but not constantly, maybe one every two years or so.

I dont know who started their ''feud'' Conan is known for making jokes about celebrities so i wouldnt think its super personal.

https://youtu.be/zzmuzMdIpy4?t=1m44s Its a low shot.
Slash has been many times a guest on his show.

Yeah, late night talk show hosts make a living making fun of hundreds of celebrities, and the hosts don't even write the monologue.  Axl has actually been rarely mentioned by Conan compared to many other celebrities.  Check back and see how many Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Michael Jackson, and Paris Hilton jokes have been made if you wanna see joke frequency!

Due to a lack of a better topic I will tell you this here.

France 24 news channel ran a piece from Greenland, Denmark where there was a school Christmas play by some 13- to 15-year-old or so. They have massive social problems including a lot of alcohol abuse, violence and the suicide rate is the highest in the world. Many kids are abandoned because the parents are drinking.

The teens took a massive risk dumping a traditional play and instead highlighting all this. Estranged was played during the play :'(
