Guns N’ Roses Drew Suspicions From Chinese Communist Party
August 24, 2011
Of the more than 5,500 State Department cables released by Wikileaks in late August — most blandly refer to climate, diplomacy, censorship and the economy — but not all reports Businessinsider.com‘s Vivian Giang.
Guns N’ Roses raised flags in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with their rendition of Government of the People’s Republic of China and Falun Gong causing a country-wide ban of their new album Chinese Democracy.
Mentioning the ban in a 2008 cable a Chinese official said “many people do not like this music as it is too loud.”
After a 15-year-wait Guns N’ Roses released ‘Chinese Democracy’ on November 23rd, 2008. The album reached #3 on the Billboard charts and recieved a platinum award from the RIAA but was considered somewhat of a failure when compared to the band’s previous works and the massive recording budget.
