My thoughts on the performance:

The band sounded really tight and seemed to have a lot of fun while playing

Slash's solos totally fitted the vibe of the song.

Axl sounded good. He sang most the song with his deeper voice. The higher notes were proplably programmed and sampled by Melissa.

Guitars worked well, especially Slash. Richard played his usual licks. What Robin played there in 2001 also worked. Maybe a mix of both will be on the record?

I liked the ''what can i do with a bitch like you'' line

Frank played it better than Brain imo. The vocals could benefit from some deep reverb/echo/filter effect to make it sound even creepier.

The quiet part could be longer i think.

Ive always liked this song. I like the nugnr Its So Easy. Im exited about this lineups work on these songs and what else is coming up!

I could see this as being the Shackler's Revenge... of a possible new album.  Instead of releasing it in a video game, they debuted it live.  I would expect Hard Skool to be the first single like Chinese Democracy was.

Oi fellow old-timers, nice seeing ya. Quite absurd going on twitter this morning to see "GNR perform new song live". I'd seen some rumour of it being on a set-list but thought that it'd be fake. 

I always was a fan of Silkworms due to it's aggressive attitude. I'm glad the "bitch chorus" is gone even though it was hella lot catchier than yelling "Absurd". Lyrics are already risky as shit, glad they seem to be somewhat woke. Imagine going through all this time only to be cancelled when things might start to get exciting again.

"Down on the farm voice" suits the song, wish he'd try it on more songs. Guitars are great!

Also, only took about 15 years for the text under my avatar to be relevant.  smoking

Haha this is the dumbest song. They should have left it in 2001 where it belongs. And this is coming from someone who liked it from Rio concert. I guess - to me anyway - it didn’t age all that well. Or maybe I’m just getting old. It just sounded like noise to me. Haha

Well, I thought this was great.

I flat out LOATHED it upon first hearing back in January 2001.  I did come around on it over the years.  Still not my favorite from that time, but it grew on me.

This, though, sounds great.  Lot of energy and everyone seems into it.  I have to think this has to be a bit more exciting for them than playing 'Double Talkin' Jive' for the 800th time.

Perhaps there is hope for us yet.

I would rather listen to DTJ a million more times than one more time of Absurd. It's just noise.

Well, I never liked it as Silkworms but didn't even recognize it yesterday because I only ever listened to Silkworms like twice. I think it's much more of a pleasant punk style track now, and agree with rebelhipi that the slow part should have been extended. I was just getting into that and they went back to the main riff. It feels like that could really go somewhere. I'm surprised Slash didn't change up the riff though. He could have done more of a 16th note thing like Anastasia or the lead in to the bridge on Better. That would give it more of a classic Guns feel.

I'm conflicted, I guess. You'd think if not Axl, at least Slash would want to re-write or re-structure the songs instead of basically doing the treatment he does to the CD album tracks, you know? I listen to those songs and I can think of a bunch of different ways to go that would be more classic era Guns style.

Ive been listening to it alot today.
All i can say is that im glad this song wasent forgotten and is now improved and hopefully included in the new album.

Its too good of a song to not have on a release. And This lineup made it better than what it was in 2001.
I see it has the same gritty agressive quality as Its So Easy, Right Next Door To Hell and Shacklers Revenge.
Im on the new gnr album hypetrain!

Its good they play it. I have listened to Village sesions, there is INCREDIBLE material there, it would be sad if all that not see the light some day. I love the sound of BH, and of GNR that years.
They could take some songs and re play for a studio record. but we dont know if its going to happen some day.
