Your favourite Guns N' Roses song  

When I was in high school (around 1991), most boys in my class were shaggy, stupid GN'R fans. At the time, I was too busy listening to my Queen tapes to pay much attention to other bands and I think I was considered a weirdo for not listening to GN'R at all. I even noticed when Freddie Mercury died for Christ sake! (I must have been the only one who knew who he was)

However, I heard a few GN'R songs then that were not too bad, so the other day I decided to download the "Use your illusion" albums and I find the following tunes quite good:

- Locomotive
- Estranged
- Coma

On the other hand, many songs are so crappy it's hard not to burst out laughing when hearing them (I'm thinking "Get in the ring" and "Back off bitch" here).

Now what do you think? Any fans here?

Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness - and it's all over much too quickly.

so nobody ever told you baby, how it was gonna be new [re: Froggy Starlust]  

They were my first (and arguably only major) musical pillar before Bowie.

Estranged


That might be their finest - and the only GNR song to make my recent top 200 songs. Also from the Illusions, I love 'Civil War', 'Live and Let Die', 'Coma', 'You Could Be Mine' and even 'November Rain' (before it was overplayed).

GG Allin was less hateful on a good day new [re: Froggy Starlust]  

This one. A politically aware song that even Dylan would have wanted to write.

One In A Million

1,2,1,2,3,4
(Whistle)
Guess I needed sometime to get away
I needed some piece of mind
Some piece of mind that'll stay
So I thumbed it down to Sixth and L.A.
Maybe a Greyhound could be my way

Police and Niggers, that's right
Get out of my way
Don't need to buy none of your
Gold chains today
I don't need no bracelets
Clamped in front of my back
Just need my ticket; 'til then
Won't you cut me some slack?

You're one in a million
Yeah, that's what you are
You're one in a million, babe
You're a shooting star
Maybe someday we'll see you
Before you make us cry
You know we tried to reach you
But you were much too high
Much too high, much too high,
Much too high, yes, ow!

Immigrants and faggots
They make no sense to me
They come to our country
And think they'll do as they please
Like start some mini Iran,
Or spread some fuckin' disease
They talk so many goddamn ways
It's all Greek to me

Well some say I'm lazy
And others say that's just me
Some say I'm crazy
I guess I'll always be
But it's been such a long time
Since I knew right from wrong
It's all the means to an end, I
I keep it movin' along

You're one in a million
Oo, you're a shooting star
You're one in a million, babe
You know that you are
Maybe someday we'll see you, Oo
oh, Before you make us cry
You know we tried to reach you
But you were much too high
Much too high, Oo, much too high
Yeah,
Much too high, huh, no, no, oh
Ow!

Radicals and Racists
Don't point your finger at me
I'm a small town white boy
Just tryin' to make ends meet
Don't need your religion
Don't watch that much T.V.
Just makin' my livin', baby
Well that's enough for me

You're one in a million
Yeah that's what you are
You're one in a million, babe
You're a shooting star
Maybe someday we'll see you
Before you make us cry
You know we tried to reach you
But you were much too high
Much too high, ow, much too high,
Much too high, much too high
Yeah, yeee, yeah, yeee, igh!
Ow! Much too high
(Oh, much too high, ah,
much too high, ah, much too high
much too high, ow, much too high)

I will drug you and fuck you
On the permafrost

I'll do that, thanks. Then I'll watch their performance of "Bohemian rhapsody", Axl hand in hand with Elton. That was cute.

I used to be a big G'N'R fan but Axel's voice pretty much grates on my nerves now. Sweet Child'O Mine is the best thing they ever did. They probably never topped their first album for consistency. My favorites on it are Child, Mr. Brownstone and Rocket Queen.

I also like One in A MIllion and Used to Love her- from their second album. The acoustic side is much better than the concert material on "G'N"R Lies".

I like Don't Damn Me, The Garden, and Coma From Illusion 1, but November Rain was a bit overblown for me. It reminds me too much of Layla at the end of it.

Estranged, Civil War,You Could Be Mine and My World from Illusion 2, but I hardly ever listen to them anymore.
I think the covers are awful. Knocking on Heaven's Door is the worst version I've heard of its many covers. The video to Estranged IS pretty cringe worthy.
I never heard Spaghetti Incident and I didn't like their cover of Sympathy for the Devil at all.
