One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Appetite For Destruction:
very sad homophobic LA teenie rock, RIP Axel. About as hard as the spice girls.
i’m sick of people calling g’n’r a metal band, they aint a god damn metal band! first of all, they are not technical enough to be considered “heavy metal”, they are your basic crap 80’s hard rock band, not a metal one.
I jsut learned something really good! to spell!

Guns ‘N Roses pulls the limits when they decide to spread their ignorance and machismo onto the young minds of the world. This disc is just a negative effect it has on bois and grrls, that says the male needs to be the boss, that ‘real men’ hit women and ‘real rock stars’ must have 20 body guards to feel important, homosexuals must be hated and that people outside the white race not to be dealt with. This disc and this band is the scab of rock music, a mosquito bite, the in-laws that just wont go away. Axle Rose is a sham and a fake, he sould be welcomed into the jungle and shot for his ignorance, stupidity and egotistical way of being.
WOW,WHAT A JOKE,WHO LIKES AWFUL BANDS LIKE G’N’R,GREEN DAY,FOREIGNER AND NIRVANA.APETITE FOR DESTRUCTION IS A MASSIVE JOKE WITH SOME OF THE WORST SONGS IN PARADISE CITY AND WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE.WELL MY FRIENDS DONT BUY ANY ALBUMS FROM THE ABOVE MENTIONED BANDS.BUY ANY ALBUM FROM THE ROLLING STONES INSTEAD.
one of the biggest flash in the pan bands ever, i hate this band, i don’t understand why they are so god damd famouse for being posers. axle is the (…)singer in existance, he should (…).
This album has a couple of good tracks, however, they are VERY dated and the “vocal” capabilities of William Rose are, well, shall we say… awful. I wish someone with vocal training had been the lead singer of this now defunct late-80’s chaos.
Squash ‘n squeek a couple of guys behind me has said it the best, this album is the most overrated of all time. I think that the reason that it is popular is because Guns ‘N Roses made a genre like Metal more tangible in the public eye, when there where many more talented metal artists out at the time, before, as well as after. I do not think that they have enough talent as musicians to be considered so great. They made songs with some good aspects that I feel are way overclouded with the bad ones (and there are a lot!). They are just drug addicts with no substance to theie musc, and they have maybe one or two decent songs. I’m sorry but this gets a one star review in my book.
Axl Rose is a douche bag. Want hard rock? listen to Incesticide by Nirvana.
C’mon, folks! This is just Hollywood stuff. Pretended rebels, pretended punks, fake clothes, lots of overdubs and ultra-kitsch videos on MTV.
You can’t be serious about this being one of the best things you’ve heard…
Try harder, there’s MUCH more to be enjoyed than this petty appetite.
Axl’s voice is disgusting and the bass/drums are SOOO predictible.
It’s a SIN to compare these guys with a band like Led Zeppelin.
wow how could they ever become popular. Oh i know why it is because of slash. now i must admit he is a great guitar player but i just dont get axl rose wath a bum. his voice is almost worse that the blink 182 singer (almost). But seriosly has any body been listening to the same album i am i mean if it is i dont know what youre problem. I know the problem is that half of the people who reviewd this album havent even heard them. they just want to be cool so they go get the t-shirts from myrvens and pretend to like them so they can fit id. The other half are deaf, or have never heard real talent. over all dont get this album if you dont like a screechy voice that breaks glass blasted in your ear dont get it.
Guns N Roses has to be the most overrated band of all time. Welcome to the jungle is the only decent song…But it can’t save this album from total Wackness.
you posers. this is pop music. good chgarlottoer is real metal!
Welcome to the junge is the worse sogn eva. i hate that song! dlisten to the collerst song in the world: old mcdonald. now that real rocks!
mozart could write better rock music then tha
I got this album due to its repuation as being the greatest metal album of all-time, yada yada, but I was sorely disapointed. This CD stinks. It is plain to anyone with ears that Guns N’ Roses is just a huge rip-off of Creed. “Welcome to the Jungle” is a third rate “What if.” “Sweet Child ‘O Mine” is a poor man’s “With Arms Wide Open.” And the list goes on and on. That hack Axl Rose is such a Scott Strapp wannabe it’s not even funny. All of Slash’s solos are straight out of Mark Tremonti’s songbook. Anyone who says this CD is good doesn’t know a thing about rock n’ roll.
Let me tell you something. This band was never “cool”, and just because they were a bit famous back in “their day” doesn’t mean they are good. Just because they got a couple of videos on MTV doesn’t mean they are worth jack now. Times change, and now MTV only plays GOOD rock music and these losers are nowhere to be seen. I’ve never listened to this album but I can tell it sucks just from looking at pictures of the band. None of the rockers on TRL or the mall look like these guys so that means they must be bad. If you don’t look cool then you can’t produce good music. That’s why Beethoven sucks. Thank god Nirvana saved music in the 90s.
TO COMPARE THEM WITH LED ZEPPELIN IS A JOKE OF BAD TASTE.
THEIR PLAYING IS POOR, THE LYRICS ARE AWFUL AND AXL’S VOICE REMINDS ME OF AN AGONISING SEAGULL.
PEOPLE WHO WERE TEENAGERS AT THAT TIME TEND TO LET THE HEART SPEAK WHEN TALKING ABOUT THIS SHALLOW MINDED GLAM BAND. THEY WERE JUST LUCKY TO BE ON THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME (THE BORING END OF THE 80’S AND BEGINNING OF 90’S).
RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS WERE THERE TOO, BUT AT LEAST THEY CAN REALLY PLAY.
guns and roses what can i say except for the fact i hate them with a passion any questions about this non talented band…..
this band is so overated. they became the biggest band in the world over 1 alright album and the others were not that great. Look at slash he’s a so called “guitar god” but what was so great about him? nothing really besides the tophat. now thats what i call overated
Guns N Roses were best when they punked it up which they do for a measure near the end of their train wreck debut “Welcome to the Jungle.” Somehow Slash made a name for himself as a guitarist playing the sloppiest drivel heard on record till alternative would take over and wreck the music industry in 91. This was their first and their best record.
Don’t get me wrong. I mean, the lyrics are great and all but Axl’s voice is just brutal. I could probably sing better than him. If u want good music then listen to Oasis!
yes i am a hardcore limp bizkit fan. i truly believe this is the reason for the downfall in music today. it was this band who made mtv big, they featured on it thus giving it more airplay. i am a big fan of the bands mtv have but not this is is utter crap. good charlotte, simple plan, sum41, vannilla ice, hilary duff are all talented artists and could be sometimes overlooked because of their unheard of talent. so what im trying to say here is go listen to breakstuff by limpbizkit and youll know what im saying
G n’ R are an 80s hard rock band who want so much to be Led Zepplin. The problems are, firstly, there is no such thing as a good hard rock band from the 80s (in fact one could argue that there is no such thing as a good 80’s band at all) and, secondly, Led Zepplin are complete and utter crap so why aspire to be like them? G n’ R are merely posers – all hair and no talent. The Village People of hard rock and it doesn’t get any sadder than that. AVOID!!!
I would detest GNR who are as bad as Nirvana and Pearl Jam. They only made one decent song in ‘NOVEMBER RAIN’. Rest of their songs are GARBAGE.
Appetite for destruction is a highly overrated piece of trash and has two of the worst songs ever in Its So Easy and Paradise city. Stay far,far away from this and get Foreigner’s Fourth album insted.
