New, multi-disc 'Appetite for Destruction ' box set provides a nearly comprehensive look at Guns N' Roses. Paul Natkin/Getty Images. When Guns N’ Roses exploded from the Sunset Strip with lyrics like, West Coast struttin’, one bad mutha, got a rattlesnake suitcase under my arm, they were a vision of piss n’ vinegar at a time when Steve Winwood was topping the charts. Apart from Axl Rose’s mile-high coiffure, Appetite for Destruction was the opposite of everything going on in the mainstream: it sounded raw, nasty and dangerous. In addition to the original album – which is remastered here and remains a document of rock & roll perfection – the collection contains EP tracks, B Sides, rarities and a heap of previously unreleased demo recordings that chronicle Appetite for Destruction’s evolution. Where Do Guns N' Roses Go From Here?
Guns N' Roses' debut, Appetite for Destruction was a turning point for hard rock in the late '80s - it was a dirty, dangerous, and mean record in a time when heavy metal meant nothing but a good time. On the surface, Guns N' Roses may appear to celebrate the same things as their peers - namely, sex, liquor, drugs, and rock & roll - but there is a nasty edge to their songs, since Axl Rose doesn't see much fun in the urban sprawl of . and its parade of heavy metal thugs, cheap women, booze, and crime.
Guns N’ Roses' debut album is a stone-cold classic – but some songs on it are more classic than others. 10) Think About You. Written by Izzy Stradlin pre-Guns N’ Roses, the sweet, upbeat Think About You is described by its author as a quick love song about drugs, sex, Hollywood and money.
It was the jungle, baby, and you were gonna die. Appetite for Destruction didn’t only stand out because of its storm of bad vibes, although that sure helped. The band’s stew of influences-caustic punk, sinewy funk, Aerosmith, the Stones-helped make it a switchblade-sharp statement of intent. Even with Appetite’s thick layers of grime, its path to mainstream success was shoved along by songs that reflected a bit of Southern California sunshine. Sweet Child O’Mine was the album’s big hit, a mushy love song set aloft by Slash’s thick arpeggiating (which, as he told Rolling Stone, was a goofy personal exercise overheard by Axl, who decided to write lyrics to it ) and Axl’s doe-eyed lyrics. It’s not all light-hearted-his initially muttered, eventually yelped, Where do we go?
