Fans of Guns n' Roses may have gotten a sneak peak of the band's anticipated Chinese Democracy album this summer when it was posted online by a blogger, but today the band itself has released the title track before the album's November 23rd release.

In July, Culver City blogger Kevin Cogill posted nine songs on his website, prompting his arrest by the FBI in August (just this past Monday, he pleaded not guilty in court).

Nevertheless, today you can listen to the album's single on GNR's profile at Imeem, a site that is basically the YouTube of audio clips (coincidentally, the company is reportedly up for sale today).
