Chinese Democracy chronology
1. "Chinese Democracy" 2. "Shackler's Revenge" 3. "Better"

"Shackler's Revenge" is the second track on Guns N' Roses' 2008 album Chinese Democracy. It was originally released as a promo single of sorts, by being included in the video game Rock Band 2.


"Shackler's Revenge" made its live debut at the Taipei, Taiwan show on December 11, 2009, which was the first Guns N' Roses show since 2007. The live version of the song has generated controversy among fans, mostly due to Axl's apparent lip-syncing during the verses and extensive use of backing tracks during the rest of the song.
