    Dr Pepper is bringing out the big Guns, confirming yesterday they will uphold their grandiose and somewhat opportunistic pledge to provide each and every American citizen with a can of the soft drink should Guns N' Roses deliver their long-awaited Chinese Democracy album before the end of 2008.

    Though the announcement was made back in March, when such a promise seemed like a stellar publicity ploy that would not necessarily require follow-through, Axl Rose & Co. recently confirmed the perpetually delayed album, their first in 15 years, would be released Nov. 23.

    In terms of their deal, the Dr is still in.

    "We never thought this day would come," the brand's VP of marketing, Tony Jacobs, said. "But now that it's here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us."

    That is, if you're quick.

    Fans who want to cash in on the libation donation will have a short window of opportunity. Would-be freeloaders must visit DrPepper.com Nov. 23, the day of the album's release, and register for a coupon redeemable for a 20-ounce bottle.

    Speaking of ... they actually played Don't Cry on the radio today. I don't think I've EVER heard that song on the radio.

    I dont blame you axl is a racist, homophobic, republican, womanizing pig I can't stand that song "one in a million" because he says such horrific things about gay people, immigrants and black people. UGH!

    But, He doesn't look bad for a man who is pushing 50 ...I like his looks and singing voice just not his hateful attitude.
