Shackler's Revenge (3:37)

Cover of Chinese Democracy

From Chinese Democracy

“Shackler’s Revenge” (which had its premeire on Rock Band 2) opens with a deep-voiced Axl gradually building towards his characteristic yowl, and features guitar noodling from their past guitarist Buckethead and some parts (at least the solo part) by their current guitarist Bumblefoot. The song’s low crunch sticks with the album’s long-stated industrial leanings, and again, layers upon layers of Axl’s create a particular sort of demented choir.

Written by: The song was written by Axl Rose, Brian Carroll aka Buckethead, Caram Costanzo, Brian Mantia aka Brain and Pete Scaturro.

Written in: It was written in or before 2003. Parts of the song were re-done after Buckethead left the band. Ron confirmed that he recorded the solos and bridges of the song.

    The background vocals in the chorus are so awesome.

    It's utterly different than anything from Appetite cause it's called artistic evolution, Axl's interested in different sounds in his band, not being stuck in the past where ya can't outdo those killer records. Caramel insanity is Shackler's Revenge.

    A good song, but compared to the 'Paradise City' or 'Nightrain' performs poorly.

    This song gets even wackier when i see all the hate it gets, it's an immense song! Axl probably wrote it with you in mind! Not a lot of people would dare make an album as ballsy as chinese democracy, especially with the back catalogue of that band!

    I had the bass part (or whatever it is) after the guitar in the beginning of this song repeating in my head a few months ago. Freaking annoying, but it sounds so cool! Good song after I got into it.
