On this 9/11 themed rocker Axl refuses to live in fear of the terrorists.
In October 2009 it was reported that Guns N' Roses were being sued by two independent record labels, claiming the group used portions of two songs by a German electronic musician Ulrich Schnausson for this track. The lawsuit alleged that singer Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses band members and album producers copied portions of Schnauss' songs, "Wherever You Are" and "A Strangely Isolated Place" without permission at the beginning of the track. The two Schnauss songs came out in 2001 and 2003, respectively.
Guns N' Roses manager Irving Azoff responded, "the band vigorously contests these claims." He added: "The snippets of 'ambient noise' in question were provided by a member of the album's production team who has assured us that these few seconds of sound were obtained legitimately."
