(Newser) – Back in March, Dr Pepper offered to give every American a free soda if Guns N' Roses' long-delayed album hit stores in 2008. Now that Chinese Democracy, 17 years in the making, has a release date of Nov. 23, the soft drink giant is paying up. That day, it will offer coupons for free Dr Pepper on its website, the Daily News reports.
