Atlas all day long... there is the bones of a very good song there I think

All of them show some promise - Hard School is a perfectly adequate rocker, Perhaps sounds ok but like Axl hasn't figured out a proper melody yet - Silkworms is what it is and I can't see it working with this lineup...
State of Grace shows some promise too - seems to have an uncertain vocal from Axl again but for me its probably closest to Atlas in potential for me

I do wonder if these songs are in contention for the mooted new album? Theres definitely some good stuff. Have these been leaked purposefully to gauge the hardcore fans reaction?

Throw these in with a few Slash/Duff numbers a few Izzy collars and one or two worked up by the current band on the floor as well as the Seeker and Wichita and you're looking at proper Guns record potentially

Yeah Atlas is a real gem. It certainly deserves to be in contention now. I think it's one of the best songs so far from the Chinese years.

State of Grace is pretty rough but has potential. I wonder if they ever worked on it later or was it dropped to C list. Had it ever been considered promising it seems like it would've moved up the A list and we would've heard of it before.

Perhaps is like a lost UYI gem but it does cover similar ground as TWAT.

Silkworms is Silkworms.

Hardschool is a B side IMO.

With all of these being "rough demos," Atlas Shrugged has gotten my interests.

Atlas Shrugged because it really isn’t a rough demo like Perhaps is. State of Grace and Silkworms are cool but simply don’t sound anything like “Guns N Roses” to me....either does Going Down. It is a great Tommy Stinson solo tune.

I voted Perhaps. Although Atlas and Hardschool have seen several spins from me as well. SOG was a grower. I'd be super interested in hearing a more evolved, fleshed out version.
