New Guns n' Roses Leak: "Shackler's Revenge"

August 14, 2008 2:08 PM ET

After a mess of leaked GN'R tracks popped up a few months back, another new cut has apparently popped up online. "Shackler's Revenge" (which was supposed to have its premiere on the upcoming sequel to the video game "Rock Band") opens with a deep-voiced Axl gradually building towards his characteristic yowl, and features guitar noodling that is very likely the work of the man called Buckethead. The song's low crunch sticks with the album's long-stated industrial leanings, and again, layers upon layers of Axls create a particular sort of demented choir. We're getting thirsty for some Dr. Pepper.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
