Guns N' Roses Release Official Studio Version of 'Absurd'

Guns N’ Roses have developed a reputation for moving at a glacial pace in the studio over the past 20 years. But on Thursday (August 5), the veteran hard rockers proved that they can still be quick on their feet by releasing their first new song in 13 years shortly after debuting it at their Fenway Park gig just 24 hours earlier.

As reported earlier, the Zeppelin-esque, rampaging song, “Absurd” (which is officially spelled with a backwards R) is actually a revamp of an unreleased song from their 2008 Chinese Democracy era titled “Silkworms.” After performing it live for the first time on Tuesday — and then again on Wednesday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey — the 3:23 track was released to streaming services.
