Guns N' Roses plan 'rock party'
Axl Rose

Guns N' Roses are offering fans the chance to hear their new album Chinese Democracy before anyone else.

To hear the long-awaited album, fans have to show off their top skills in an air guitar competition.

Those wishing to enter should upload their "craziest, most inappropriate air guitar" performance to the band's YouTube channel.

The winner will hear Chinese Democracy at a private "rock party" before its release later in the month.

Chinese Democracy, released on 24 November, is the first original material from the group since 1991's double release Use Your Illusion I and II.

Only vocalist Axl Rose remains from the original line-up of the band, whose last album release was the 1993 covers collection "The Spaghetti Incident?".

Earlier this year, Dr Pepper promised to supply every person in America with a free can of the soft drink if Chinese Democracy was released in 2008.
