With "Chinese Democracy" Official, Dr. Pepper Reveals Free Soda Plan

October 23, 2008 9:00 AM ET

Finally, after over a decade of false starts, we will finally get what we've all been waiting for: a free bottle of Dr. Pepper. With yesterday's official confirmation that Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy is really happening, the makers of Dr. Pepper announced their plan to make good on their promise to provide everyone with free soda. "We never thought this day would come," said Dr. Pepper vice president of marketing Tony Jacobs, "but now that it's here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us." Starting November 23rd, the day Chinese Democracy hits Best Buy, you can head over to the Dr. Pepper website and register your information to receive a coupon which can be redeemed for a free 20-ounce pop. However, any dreams you fostered about drinking your free Dr. Pepper while headbanging to Democracy will have to wait four-to-six weeks, the estimated delivery time to get your coupon in the mail. Still, what's four-to-six weeks when we've already waited fourteen years?

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
