Guns N' Roses new album came out before Duke Nukem Forever

Chinese Democracy, the new album by Guns N' Roses, is being released next week. Back when the album was announced, a new Democratic President gave people around the world hope and excitement that America would slowly descend into mediocrity allowing their own second rate nations to soar, oil prices had been in a steady decline, and ER was the top television show.

Well, okay, something's changed in 14 years. You get the picture though. Fourteen years, $13 million, and about 15 band member changes later, Chinese Democracy is here.

Well, the rock album, I mean. Not actual democracy in China. But for a while it was an open question which would happen first.
