It's true.

IT'S DAMN TRUE.



Obviously people are going to disagree with me here but honestly I don't think there's anyone better.

Guns N' Roses are a great rock band, but to call them THE greatest rock band of all time is a bit of a stretch. I'd put Led Zeppelin or The Beatles above GNR. They're arguably one of the greatest rock bands of all time imo though. They're in that debate for Appetite of Destruction alone with the overall power and in-your-face attitude of the songs in that record. Just great stuff.

The Beatles are the best. Followed by Pink Floyd, followed by Led Zeppelin. I like some GNR though. Its odd, because I've rediscovered Appetite for Destruction recently, and forgot how much I like the album. Very good, if not one of the best debut albums for a band.

By far, one of the most overrated bands of all time. LOL at people who think slash is something special.

I am just tired of people saying he is the best guitarist ever.....I don't know who the best guitarist ever is, but I sure could name a bunch I'd rather have teach me all of their technique. Plus Slash secretly copies all Jimmy Page's styles(not playing wise) but... the guitar to the knees, black long curly hair, Gibson Les Pauls, the only thing he is missing is the dragon suits. and I would much rather meet Page..or Hendrix..or any other decently good guitarist..Slash is decent. Nothing more.

I wouldn't put Led Zeppelin over them, nor The Beatles. I don't even like The Beatles. Their stuff is too bland and plain, whereas I like more sort of grainy hard rock. I like Led Zeppelin a lot though, but they just don't compare to the vibes that come from Guns N' Roses' music.

New GNR are trash though. Really ruining the legacy that the boys from say, 92, laid down.

Appetite is definitely in the top 10 rock albums of all time list, in my opinion. The Beatles aren't the best. Just because they're the original doesn't mean they're the best. Pink Floyd are good, and as I've already said so are Led Zeppelin.

Slash is something special. He doesn't have the most technical playing style and he can't play at bizarre speeds but he knows how to play guitar and he knows how to put emotion into his songs. You can't deny that. Page is nothing special either. Led Zeppelin are nothing special. Run of the mill rock band.

And don't get me started on Hendrix, he's a one hit wonder.

Speaking from experience, I think that someone who plays guitar can appreciate Slash more than the general public does. To be able to set the scene of a song with an opening feel and then shift that tone drastically to something much more "edgy" yet still maintain a distinct feel is no easy feat. Not to mention, this man has kicked out a line of nasty (in a good way) riffs and has developed quite the style over the years. You know Slash's tone when it is heard, and that says something. I will grant you that Slash isn't the cleanest guitarist out there, but a damn good one nontheless.

They came in post LA Guns and tore the scene down very quickly posting debut sales with Appetite that top alongside Boston all time for debut. Guns n Roses came in with that signature grit and rawness that presented a unique quality to the ubiquity of the classic rock sound/80s generic sound. Despite this rawness though and Slash's "firey blues" style, they still had a quality drummer in Adler and while Axl is more hounded for his notorious ways and inconsistancy, the guy I remind you possessed a four octave range with a vast array of various voices and when on his game was one of the best rock leads of the late 80s when on. Hell, even in 2010 Axl was in the upper echelon before the wheels came off. I think perhaps something else that isn't credited as much is that Guns for all their grit had the versatility to produce some damn nice ballads and tone shifts midsong to where they could almost produce two songs in one. Hell, even "This I Love" off Chinese Democracy is a damn nice ballad. Not to mention, for the controversy that some of their lyrics stirred back in the day and sure they are not GOAT lyricists, but if one looks into their catalogue, they have some nice gems. For example, "Time just fades the pages in my book of memories" or even "Sweet Child O Mine" for it's purpose. Class band in original/UYI form and hell, even Chinese Democracy has some great tunes like "This I Love".

That all said, due to lack of longevity and being against some juggernauts when we talk all of rock music, I can't in good conscience place them top 10.

It's Alice In Chains for me, not to say GN'R aren't great as they are, especially their Use Your Illusion albums, I think Appetite For Destruction is overrated though as the replay value isn't there for me, could be that most of the hits are overplayed nowadays.

Chinese Democracy is underrated as fuck too, a lot of good tracks on that album, This I Love, Madagascar, There Was A Time, Street of Dreams, I suggest everyone listen to it with an open mind instead of the oh slash isn't here this sucks mindset. Plays out like a movie soundtrack imo.

Alice in Chains are good, but I don't think they're the best.

A lot of GNR hits have suffered from too much mainstream attention and as such are overplayed and overused. It's a shame. The only song I like from Chinese Democracy is This I Love but I've only heard around three.

I'll have to give it a proper listen soon.
