So apparently the line up for this recording is the current touring line up?

Yes. It's rather a CD single, not an EP.

Is it me or these guys are completely out of the loop?

Who announces a release that will happen in FIVE MONTHS TIME for 4 tracks that are already AVAILABLE FOR FREE? This in a day and age when people want what they want for NOW?

Wouldn't it be better for they to announce a pre-sale for this BEFORE the release of the studio version of the song and before the live debut of it?

Like wouldn't it be better to offer this to people before anyone even heard the new version of the song?

I think these guys are so "out of time"...

It likely has to do with the current backlog in vinyl factories (and to a lesser extent in CD pressing ones) due to Covid, which has caused delays of physical releases. The Hard Skool CD single and 7'' seem to aim at the smaller market of hardcore fans who want to buy the new songs in physical form.

Hmmm... Not sure about that... If there is a known delay in making physical records that can totally be "circumnavigated". You want to release something in September 2021 then you "order" it to the factory "X" months before you would normally do because you know there is an expected delay of "X" months...

Not sure about that also... I believe for GN'R this "small market" could actually be a (multi?) million copies market if done right. By "done right" I mean 1) good songs and 2) good marketing/sales strategy. They don't seem to have any by now and it doesn't look like they care about having any of that...

Very interesting info.

Axl famously refused to edit "November Rain" for the video so it is interesting that he is "allowing" this one to have a radio edit.

Do you know if this radio edit is available for streaming somewhere?


If you're a member of SiriusXM you can stream Duff's radio show on demand. If not, I have a rip of it, I'll send you a link in PMs.

Can you share with me the radio edit?

The song got 3/6 in one of Norway's largest newspaper. A bit of an annoying review, the song was apparently decent enough but the reviewer complained about it being old and that the current lineup hasn't created anything new together. I feel the song wasn't reviewed fairly.

I've just made a short video of Hard Skool with some footage of "Three O'Clock High" movie (1987), with Casey Siemaszko (Jerry Mitchell) e Richard Tyson (Buddy Revell). I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks, dude!

I would like to put it at my YouTube's channel, but would be deleted in a few minutes... so, Vimeo is a good alternative to upload these things.

I see the video is getting a lot of criticism from fans. Many of them would have wanted something more elaborate, more of an effort. I get that. I also find it highly unlikely that they would make a "proper" music video, something similar to what they did back in the 90s. I expected nothing and got more than what I expected. And as far as low budget lyrics video go, I don't think this is too bad. In fact, I think it is pretty good.

Hard Skool hasn't appeared yet on any databases like ASCAP, which are about who gets royalties for songwriting.

But, as I saw on a GnR forum, it is on the database of Universal Music Publishing:

Hard Skool - Page 2 Hard_s11

https://www.umusicpub.com/us/Digital-Music-Library/search/Hard%20Skool

According to it, the writers are Axl, Slash, Duff, Paul Tobias, Robin, Tommy and Josh.

So it seems that Axl has given credits/royalties to former members. I guess it also means that the song doesn't originate from 1996 and it's not the same song Duff referred to then as the Jackie Chan song?

On the other hand, the press release said it was written by Axl. So maybe the other members just helped develop it.

How does this information mean the song didn't originate in 1996? It could have been a song Axl, Duff, Paul and Dizzy worked on back then which was later worked on by Josh, Tommy and Robin, and eventually Slash added guitars, earning all of them writing credits?

Yes, it could have gone down like that (except Dizzy, who doesn't have a writing credit). Or, like I said in the follow-up comment, Axl had come up with the basic sketch and then members helped arrange it and so they got credit.
