19th November 2003 - AFD 500 Greatest
THE 500 GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME

#61 Appetite for Destruction
Guns n' Roses
GEFFEN 1987

THE BIGGEST-SELLING debut album of the Eighties, Appetite features a lot more than the yowl of Indiana-bred W. Axl Rose, the only thing still remaining of the original G n' R. Some of the band's assets were in fact subtle, such as drummer Steven Adler, who brought swing and disco breakdowns to the band's mighty metal. And while songs such as “Welcome to the Jungle” are all about urban pain, others including “Sweet Child o' Mine” and “Paradise City,” have sweet, yearning lyrics that put the band's musical ferocity in even higher relief. “A lot of rock bands are too fucking wimpy to have any sentiment or any emotion,” Rose said, “unless they're in pain.”
