Just ignore Uziel. He's a troll and I don't understand why Kyle does nothing. (np)

Appetite for Destruction may be a little overrated. It's definitely not in my top twenty albums; it's doubtful that it's in my top thirty. But they did something right with this album. For starters, every other hair metal band was building off of/ripping off Led Zeppelin. Guns n' Roses largely expanded on Aerosmith's sound instead. And the way they did it... My first time listening to Appetite for Destruction, over a year after it had come out, I had never heard anything that raw and dirty before. Listening to it for the first time was something of a shock.

And that was about ten months after I heard Welcome to the Jungle for the first time. The album may be overrated, but I contend that this song deserves all the accolades it's received. I was floored the first time I saw the video, and I wasn't alone:
However, within minutes of the video airing for the first time a week later, the phones began to light up at the network as their switchboard became overloaded with calls for repeat plays from overexcited fans.
So yeah, overall Guns n' Roses isn't a band over which I'm going to fanboi spooge, but I'm not about to sell them short either.
