Welcome to the Jungle Dr. Pepper.

Dr. Pepper made a deal with America. If Guns n’ Roses released their new album “Chinese Democracy” in 2008 (17 years after production began), Dr. Pepper would give everyone in America a free 12-ounce can of soda. Axl Rose and crew delivered the album. Dr. Pepper bungled the giveaway, which required people to visit Dr. Pepper’s website and print out a coupon. Web problems left a bad taste in the mouths of all those who tried to get their free drink. Now Axl is ticked off and is demanding an apology from the soft drink maker, accusing them of profiting off the bands name. Based on some of the album reviews, one could say that Guns ‘n Roses is cashing in Dr. Pepper’s name.
