Axl Rose Hates Dr. Pepper

According to reports, Guns 'N' Roses frontman Axl Rose is quite displeased with Dr. Pepper.

As you heard on the Juke, the soda brand promised to give everyone (that's right everyone) a free drank if Axl came through with his promise to deliver the much anticipated album "Chinese Democracy."

As you probably know, Axl and his G'N'R remake actually released the album. Shockingly, it hasn't been called the worst album ever.

What you may not know is that Dr. Pepper folded under the pressure, and their site crashed with all the demand for free pop.

Now Axl and his lawyers are pissed, and they are letting the good doctor know about it. According to MTV.com, Axl's lawyer called the scheme "
exploitation of my clients’ legendary reputation and their eagerly awaited album,” and said that the whole fiasco “brazenly violated our clients’ rights.”
