It'd be a perfect title for the record and wow, great call on the Warhol imagery ...

It's not going to be called Stay of Execution, the trademark expired a long time ago and GN'R have never trademarked album titles, so it was never likely to be an album title.

Besides which, SoE was always one of those "Axl pun" titles like "No Trickery" or "Not In This Lifetime." It's a specific reference to getting a stay of execution for New GN'R from the record company by putting out an album to placate them. The joke no longer applies, so I very much doubt that he'd use the title now.

I thought that title was connected to a letter Axl wrote to the Indo president about those drug mules that got a stay of execution but in the end got the death penalty? The copyright that title was for the press release?

At the time I thought it kind of reflected the Slash and Duff situation. Maybe Axl could forgive the drug mules and give them a stay of execution.

That may have been the inspiration, but I'm pretty sure that - given the band was in a pretty parlous state at that point and that getting a new album out was a "do or die" moment for New GN'R - Axl was referring to the album being a "stay of execution" for the band itself. It's a cool title, but it doesn't resonate with where the band is at now.

Stay Of Execution was never an album title.... it was a title for some Vegas residency if I recall correctly but it was never the new album's title.

I'm for sure stoked if gnr is in the studio, but am equally as thrilled that Daft Punk and The Strokes are too!

You know, with any other band, the fact that they're in the studio recording a new album might get my hopes up that they were planning on releasing a new album. But you know what they say, fool me once...

Guns N Roses are always on death row. It’s the nature of the business. But I know what you mean it’s a bit negative for this rebirth of GNR. It’s more like the Return of the Living Dead. Self titled seems to be the most likely.

Given that Axl wrote that letter and copyrighted that title he could have some lyrics about this subject.
