Guns N' Roses Sales Drop, Is It Best Buy's Fault?

(Day in Rock) Guns N' Roses' new album, "Chinese Democracy", sold 47,000 copies in the United States in its third week of release to land at position No. 29 on The Billboard 200 chart, according to Blabbermouth.net . The CD has shifted 365,000 units since it was released on November 23 as a Best Buy exclusive after a wait of more than 15 years.

Maybe they should have gone with Walmart! Just ask Billboard. Here is a part of their report: Some executives suggested that the initial projections for "Chinese Democracy" were out of whack with reality, considering that Wal-Mart has 4,200 stores selling music while Best Buy only has about 950 stores.

But many others say that Best Buy simply didn't promote "Chinese Democracy" as much as Wal-Mart pushed "Black Ice." And while no one expected the consumer electronics chain to duplicate Wal-Mart's store-within-a-store strategy for Guns N' Roses, about half of the executives interviewed for this story said they had a hard time finding "Democracy" at their local Best Buy.
