Axl, Kanye, Ludacris, and the Killers all eye November 24 album releases

Poor Brandon Flowers and the Killers. They had all that post-Olympic bounce from the Nike commercial, appeared on the election resurgent Saturday Night Live, and picked November 24 to release their new album, Day and Age. The only competition was from Ludacris' Theater of the Mind, and let's be honest; there's not a lot of crossover audience there. Then, like Godzilla arising from the briny deep, Axl Rose drops sixteen years of hairspray and insanity on your big day. If that's not enoigh, Kanye West decides to turn his attention from being a puppet long enough to join the fray. Now instead of having all those pre-Thanksgiving impulse shoppers deciding between two big ticket albums, it has become Axl-Kanye-Luda-Killer-Thon 2008. If four major acts enter and only one can be victorious, who will it be? Though my money is on the mulleted legions of G N' R fans (of which I am one), I have a feeling who will end up with the short ends of the stick.  The Killers had better ask their families to buy a couple of copies this time around to make things look good.

I will pay you to stop posting that picture.


haha. That is a tough photo to look at.

I can't imagine that all four will actually be released on November 24. Someone has to back down.

If they all do come out on 11/24, my order from most to least album sales would be:
1) GNR
2) Kanye
3) Ludacris
4) The Killers

The GNR album actually comes out on the 23rd (the Sunday). But it's crazy that many albums from big bands are out in two days.

Are you kidding? I wanna write about the Killers just so I can use that picture.
