After fourteen years of start, work, delay, speculation and rumor, rock band Gun N' Roses have reportedly succeeded to bring their upcoming sixth studio album "Chinese Democracy" to the next level. According to several reports, their forthcoming effort is set to be launched anytime soon this year. Either Front Line management or Interscope have reportedly approached Wal-Mart and Best Buy executives. Recent news says that the agreement has been settled with one of the big-box retailers and shortly, "Chinese Democracy" will be out as an exclusive at one of the merchant chains.

Commenting on the issue, some say that it may be true as Gun N' Roses are now managed by Irving Azoff from Front Line, a management team who have earned a reputation for striking exclusive album deals with retails chains. Early this year, Irving has just released Eagles' reunion set "Long Road Out of Eden" through Wal-Mart.

However, no one from the Front Line is available for a confirmation. Wal-Mart's representative refuses to give any comment about the alleged offerings while Best Buy publicist couldn't be reached.

This news then made some claiming that the release schedule for their "Chinese Democracy" is imminent. Some speculations even say that their confirmed "Shackler's Revenge" track will make its worldwide debut on MTV upcoming "Rock Band 2" game.

As previously reported, "Shackle's Revenge" is confirmed to be among soundtracks for the brand new MTV game. The song, which carries an electronic sound, recently has a brief run on YouTube but was withdrawn not long after it was uploaded.
