Chinese Democracy is a 2008 album--the sixth studio album by hard rock band Guns N' Roses. Though it bears the "Guns N' Roses" name, a spade needs to be called a spade here--it is an Axl Rose solo album. Period.

The album was covered by Damien and Desmond Reddick on their podcast, Dropped D. To date, no other album they have reviewed has come even remotely close to being scored as low as this one (a collective 18% from the duo), and Damien has gone on record as saying there will absolutely never be another one that he will score lower. The album took fourteen years to come out, and was marred by inconsistent tunes, too many cheesy ballads (most of which were strung together), horrible industrial rock, and Axl trying desperately to copy the success he had in decades past.
