And here is their latest and most attention grabbing:

Jesus returns to the cover of So Rock! magazine for the December issue, which arrived on newsstands just last week.

So Rock Jesus for 2009 - Mozilla Firefox 3.1 Beta 2.jpg

The rock icon previously appeared as Buddy Christ on the cover of issue 45 in 2005. Here, the message is less vulgar and slightly more positive: “New Year / God Bless Every Fxxking Guy.” A relatively frequent cover model, Jesus also appeared on issues 34 and 36.

Featured in this issue is an irreverent take on Chinese Democracy, the new Guns N’ Roses album. It’s the group’s first studio album in fifteen years so, like much of the western press, So Rock! mixes an album review with snarky commentary on how long it took to produce. Most of the feature is devoted to a look back at how the music industry has changed in the last decade and a half, from technological changes that brought about the iPod and MySpace, to the wax and wane of various musical trends, departed musicians, and the changing lineup of frontman Axl Rose‘s band.
