We'll believe it when we see it, but Axl Rose insisted this week that Guns N' Roses have new material he hopes to release sometime in the not-too-distant future. "We recorded a lot of things before Chinese Democracy was out," he said. "We've worked more on some of those things and we've written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call the second half of Chinese. That's already recorded. And then we have a remix album made of the songs from Chinese. That's been done for a while, too."

Now we have a question for you: What is your single favorite Guns N' Roses song? Feel free to vote for an early classic like "Sweet Child O'Mine" and "Rocket Queen," a 1990s epic like "November Rain" and "Don't Cry" or even a Chinese Democracy track like "Better" or "I.R.S." You can vote for whichever Guns N' Roses song you want, but please only vote once and only for a single track.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
