I made a red handful of refinements to the Chinese Democracy album cover.

I removed distracting elements and corrected the piss-color sepia tone whatever Universal intern thought would be a good idea.

Please enjoy for personal use if you are so compelled.

I was in shock when seeing the album cover for the first time. Yes we had the description for years and of course loads of fakes but when seeing the real thing for the first time......ugh.

Not how I had pictured it.

Not a huge fan of the alt covers either but they were a lot better than the bike and the bike should've been ditched. If anything, release the bike cover as the rare alternate version for hardcore fans.

Thanks.

The bike could've been a good cover but whomever took the picture (Terry Hardin, whoever that is) is clearly not a trained photographer. It looks like it's a cover for a record called The Golden Basket.

The Red Hand is the best cover and even recalls Appetite For Destruction's original cover however it doesn't fit the songs on the album.

Always thought that red hand cover was amazing...way better than what we got.

The original bike with graffiti idea is a decent concept but the execution just wasn't quite right....in that sense it fits the album well hahahahah

Although I do love CD it's one of my fav albums really...but it's amazing that from the mix to the art to the promo to the production time everything about it was always like "well this is cool as shit...but...."
