Guns N’ Roses Release Appetite for Destruction

“My Way, Your Way, Anything Goes Tonight.”

On this Date, July 21st in 1987: Guns N’ Roses released their landmark debut album Appetite for Destruction, which would later spend five weeks on top of the Billboard 200 album chart. As of September 2008 the album is certified 18 times platinum. The band Guns N’ Roses in their original line-up – Axl, Slash, Duff, Steven and Izzy – were inarguable the greatest hard rock band of that era. The fact that Axl Rose could and would willingly destroy that band is proof enough to me that the man is mentally ill.

  1. Steven Adler! Man, he’s a train wreck now, but I feel for him after watching his Celebrity Rehab antics (It was so sad when he was crying that he “just wanted my best friend Slash back”. Poor guy!).

    But yeah man…Appetite is still a way badass record. Sidebar: I wish Velvet Revolver will get a new singer already!
