Update: fake Chinese Democracy leak crashes Hipinion board

It appears that after 15 years, Guns N Roses fabled "Chinese Democracy" has been completed. Unlike the last ten times you heard this, a finished version of the album has leaked to the internet through a piggish UK torrent site. (Said site, which maintains extremely nerdy standards for the material uploaded there, has twice deleted the torrent, apparently because it was transcoded from a non-digital source -- the album is currently unavailable there, but is about to metastasize into the mainstream internet.) A mere mention of the torrent on the indie-nerd message board Hipinion has led to that site being pretty much immobilized. The truly insane hook to this story: early responses to the post indicate that hipsters think the album is really fucking good. Hell: totally freezing over.

Damn you, webternet! The whole thing was a hoax. Count us among the gullible who've fallen for this one about seven zillion times. We'll have more details as soon as we get hold of what made it onto Oink.
