Is Axl Rose now a Wal-Mart kind of guy?

If you’ve been waiting 14 long, fruitless years for the Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy, you’d better live near a Wal-Mart or Best Buy, because those might be the only places to get it. Billboard quotes "several unnamed sources" who said that "negotiations have begun to make Chinese Democracy a retail exclusive" at one of the two megastores, presumably because anyone hip enough to buy music elsewhere no longer gives a shit about Axl Rose. But come what may, fans will get to hear "Shackler’s Revenge," a track from the album, in the next installment of the video game Rock Band. Unless Axl manages to delay that, too.
