|GN'R was listed as #43 in Spin Magazine's 50 greatest bands of all time:
"While Axl Rose Stews in his Malibu juices, its best remember when Guns preened supreme as world-baiting, coke-corrupted, glam-punk-metal heroes. Nobody ever
looked more rock-foxy playing guitar than Slash (sometimes overshadowing his solos); and even though the power ballads are fabulous, heartfelt, beautiful, hilarious, etc., it's those fucked-beyond-belief rockers ("Paradise City", "Welcome To The Jungle") that raised the hair on your skinny, tatooed arms.
Influenced: Marilyn Manson, Limp Bizkit, Buckcherry, Michael Jackson, Howard Stern, Jesse Camp
Classic Album: Appetite For Destruction (Geffen 1987)
