Do you know where you are? You’re in the jungle baby!
We all know the mega-hits: “Welcome to the Jungle”, “Sweet Child O Mine”, “November Rain”, “Paradise City”, etc. And now that Guns N Roses are back together and playing Detroit, we wanted to give you nine songs you might not be familiar with, but you’ll love when you hear them live.
We aren’t sure why Night Train isn’t played as much as all the other hits on classic rock stations. It’s classic Guns N Roses power rock.
The masters of the 8-minute long rock ballad did it again with “Estranged”. If you like “November Rain” (and we all do), then you’ll love “Estranged”.
What would a list of GnR songs be without references to drugs?! “Mr. Brownstone” joins a long list of awesome rock songs about rampant drug use.
It’s So Easy
Leave it to a massive rock band to write a song about how easy it is to hook up with women. Jealous much? Yes, yes we are.
Surprising to most, Guns N Roses did indeed write songs that were about something more than sex and drugs.
This I Love
There’s no way you know this one, because it’s from the album turned punchline Chinese Democracy. Axl does have a knack for ballads, and this one is no exception.
Great song about looking back on the past and not dwelling on it. “Yesterdays have got nothing for me.”
Double Talking Jive
Killer guitar riff with the profanity of a George Carlin album. The best part of this clip is the shirt Slash is wearing. Hope he wears it at the show on Thursday.
Speaking of Chinese Democracy. The title track to the album that seemed like it’d never be complete is actually pretty great. It wasn’t worth the 15 year wait, but what album is?
Enjoy the show! It’s the concert event 23-years in the making!
