The Chinese government has dubbed Guns N’ Roses‘ new album “Chinese Democracy” a “venomous attack” on the country.
The Communist party’s newspaper, the Global Times, stated that the album “turns its spear point on China”.
When asked about the piece by BBC News, foreign ministry spokesperson Qin Gang said: “According to my knowledge, a lot of people don’t like this kind of music because it’s too noisy and too loud.”
One line, ‘blame it on a Falun Gong’, on the title track of the band’s long-awaited album refers to the controversial spiritual movement reportedly persecuted by the Chinese government.
