1. November Rain
Axl Rose wrote this lush, beautiful, ridiculously melodramatic piano-with-strings weeper for a true love. This song has some of the most beautiful lyrics, and when accompanied by full orchestra and and Elton John style piano and the massive, mesmerising solo that Slash delivers... it creates a effect so powerful that it gets your blood racing and puts a smile on your face at the same time. It is first because:
- The lyrics are one of the best lyrics of all time, maybe the best.
- Slash's solo is the most beautiful guitar solo ever made.
- The Piano and Guitar in tandem are Great
- The orchestra is doing a really great job!
- Awesome Finish
The solo in this is song is perfectly paced with one of the best melodic phrases ever it brings chills down my spine and Axel's lyrics and vocals are so good synced with the rest of their band this is the best song. November Rain is the only single in US chart history which broke into the US top 10 with a guitar solo over 1 minute long. It is also the longest song to reach the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. So is this song too long? No way! This song is way too short. I love long songs like this one.
2. Sweet Child o Mine
It was a song that Slash thought was silly initially. But "Sweet Child o Mine" went on to rewrite the rulebook for '80s hard rock, showing the hard rock and metal bands how you could write an expressive love song without losing your dignity in the process. Slash solo in this song is one of the best solos I have ever listened... it seems there we are flying when he starts the guitar solo... AWESOME... Sweet Child O Mine did not seem like a song I would like, but when I listened to it I could not help but instantly fall in love with this song.
- The Lyrics-Amazing.
- The Singing-Incredible.
- The Tune-Awesome.
- The Guitar-Godly
3. Welcome to the Jungle
Welcome to the Jungle was the opening track to Appetite for Destruction and had taken its name from a song by Finnish group Hanoi Rocks. It is a startling assault of guitars and Axl Rose's full-throttled howls. Labeled by Rolling Stone and VH1 as one of the greatest hard rock song of all time, Welcome to the Jungle was the first song co-written by Axl Rose and Slash. A proper GNR classic and a legendary song, Shows the true GNR attitude.
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your shanna nn,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,,n.n knees, knees
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine..
4. Don't Cry
One of the greatest songs of all times. when I listen to it, the hair of my hands stands up. Everyone can enjoy a song like ‘Don't Cry: it is built around simple guitar chords, it features an obvious chorus, it has a short but nonetheless insane guitar solo, and it carries a simple yet relatable message. I'm not sure why I love ‘Don't Cry so much, and I'm sure on another day, i could have rated this as song as number 1. This is a collaborative effort, and it really shows when you listen to the song- you see everyone's prominence - Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff and Matt. Sing this song to a heart broken girl and she will feel all better.I love this song, it is so sweet and comforting, and helps built up my strength whenever i fell like crying.
A beautiful ballad that showcased Rose's vocal talents and Slash's amazing guitar playing. Proving that they could handle emotion, the song was reportedly inspired by one of Rose's many turbulent relationships. It's generally accepted to be about the troubled relationship between Axl and now ex-wife Erin Everly, despite being written by guitarist Izzy Stradlin. Slash is using a acoustic guitar which is what made this song so amazing. Also the whistling in this song fused with the acoustic guitar melody makes this unreal.
6. Paradise City
The music video featured footage of the band on tour, mixing both on stage and behind-the-scenes action, which further enforced the rock ‘n' roll lifestyle the band was leading. you can listen to Paradise City for 100 times on loop and still wanna listen to it even more! It has got everything! Guns N' Roses' lead guitarist, Slash, states that the song was written in the back of a rental van as they were going to San Francisco drinking and playing acoustic guitars, when he came up with the intro. Slash's Favorite Song - "Paradise City" is usually performed last, as an encore during Live Shows.
7. Knocking on Heaven's Door
GNR's rendition of Bob Dylan's track is so good that the song is now more associated with them than it is with him. With cute little solos scattered throughout the track, and an interesting background narrative to complement the incredible lyrics, this is another of the band's absolute classics, building up from a classic ballad to an exciting climax. This song is very good on Use Your Illusion 2. But live versions of Knockin' on Heaven's Door are so great, it was always one of the highlights of a typical GNR show!!! This is so good on The Tokyo video (the second solo is very long and is absolutely great. But this is nothing compared to the Chicago 1992 version!! AAHH! The best solo ever! Slash did this little miracle with the guitar below). And i have an unplugged version too and it's as great as the Tokyo version, with a great slash solo and a really good piano solo. Love the wembley version too. great ambience and axl is flawless"Ladies and Gentlemen, on the piano, Mr. Dizzy Reed." But on the album the voice of Axl is so amazing and the sound of the guitar is more than perfect.
A combination of lost-love song and midlife crisis, "Estranged" is nine minutes of disheartened confusion as Rose whispers and whimpers over a stately piano and Slash's beautiful guitar solo. The second-longest track ever released by the band, ‘Estranged' is more of a journey than a song, driven carefully by passionate instrumental passages with intricate guitar melodies courtesy of Slash, strong vocal lines and themes, and Rose-trademark piano fills and breaks. This song is the great because it is an epic, flawless masterpiece; just listen to the song! Besides, Estranged only changes key once, just like Sweet Child and November Rain. This song is divided in 3 parts: The first part is great with beautiful guitar melodies. The second part is an excellent piano solo and i like it so much. And the last part of the song is as great as the 2 first parts. And the guitar solos are soooo gooooood! This is the greatest song! I heard a couple of live versions but i think that no one is as great as the album version. After listening to such a great song, the only thing you can say is that Axl and Slash are the best! Axl wrote all the piano and lyrics and then Slash picked a guitar and achieved this miracle. I've never heard a similar song and as Gilby Clarke said, slash kinda re-invented the rock n' roll guitar that day!
9. Civil War
It is a protest song that was first featured on the 1990 charity album Nobody’s Child. Known for sampling Strother Martin's speech in 'Cool Hand Luke' in the intro, as well as featuring the closing line at the end of the song that asks, "What's so civil about war anyway?," 'Civil War' is GN'R's anti-war anthem. It is also the last song on which drummer Steven Adler played before being replaced by Matt Sorum.Excellent Guitar work and matching lyrics, telling a killer story. A nicely mixed song, transitioning from emotional ballad to heavy rock and back perfectly, ‘Civil War' is the most moving Guns song, and one of the best lyrical compositions in the band's history.
10. You Could Be Mine
This is one of the first songs GNR wrote in their first years. It's amazing how it did not end up on "APPETITE". Because it would fit perfectly on that album. It's loud, powerful, energetic, very good song to wake you up in the morning! Axl sang it perfectly on the album and it's always a very popular song among the GNR fans, i also like it a lot! The Song featured in Terminator 2 during the ending credits and was heard in the film itself in early scenes with John Connor. Film also has references to Guns N' Roses including a Guns N' Roses t-shirt to the T-800 taking out his shotgun from a box of roses,
