i see alot of 'craps' here. hope it's not revisionist thinking. appetite for destuction was a monster of a record, and i've never met a soul with the balls to tell me he didn't rock out to it.

Crap. Guns N Roses was grungy hair metal, that's all.

Revisionist thinking? Come on, how old were you when Appetite for Destruction came out?

i was in my teens. so that may be an issue. but i still think it rocks now, even though i don't listen to it much. i used to love gnr when i was 14 - i now see them as the stupid tossers they always were. but that doesnt change the fact that that record has good songs on it, even if it isn't smart.[/quote]

Yeah, it's got some good songs, but not that good. They don't make up for the cancelled concerts, the bad-boy posturing, the endless delays for the new record, the massive ego, the voice (jesus, fuckin' irritating after about an hour), The Spaghetti Incident - remember, the point of the game is to evaluate the entire trajectory of the group in question. You can't say one album is great, so Not Crap. Can you honestly say, taking everything into account, G'N'R is Not Crap?

Didn't think so.

i feel like the public defender for gnr. man whow'd i get this job...
ok, what about lies, some good songs on that one. and while use your illusion was a bloated mess, there were some saving graces no? at least, i once thought so.

so,
a seminal, startoshere-puncturing first album
a pretty good ep
and a mediocre epic double album

and forget gnr now, they stopped being gnr when izzy left the band.

not a great band, maybe not even really good, but crap? no.

Can't do it. If they're still called "Guns 'N' Roses", you have to count everything.

Guns 'n' Roses is perhaps the most hateable band that has ever existed.

I cannot think of a single redeeming quality of this band -- except the internal band inertia that has kept them from releasing more records.

Absolute crap.

I think I'll stand beside Chad, with the balls to say, "I NEVER rocked out to that crap".
The only thing I'd say that was remotely redeemable fromthis band, Is that it was freaking hilarious how angry they got at Nirvana for being a million times better than them and selling more records than them.
TOTAL and udder crap. Udder,as in, I'm relating them to the big sack which you pull on to get milk out of a cow.

hey, maybe i'm wrong. i never hung with indie rock people in the late 80's, as i didn't know such a people even existed. but everyone i did know failed to resist the urge to air guitar to sweet child o mine no matter how much they wanted to. like the sneezing reflex. and isn't sneezing fun? or shitting, sure the end-product maybe isn't something to put on your wall, but is wasn't unpleasant doing it. you know, i can't imagine what it would have been like to never like chessy stupid fucking music. i mean, to skip that entire phase of life completely - what kind of a twisted, mean son of a bitch would that make you? hmmm, if only such people were to be found on these boards.

stephensolo-

i myself grew up in a dinky farming village in the middle of nowhere. i had and still have friends that enjoy the hell out of guns and roses. just never liked them. i had, and still have a gutteral softspot for the first, self-titled record by black n blue. this softspot has been in existence for damn near two decades, and i still can't explain it nor do i feel the need to. in fact, i recently became really excited when i came across a cd of them playing at harpo's in detroit in support of that record. it's got a big, lame assed drum solo and everything, and i love it. have fun enjoying guns n roses. no shit.

yours,
chad

covers

Postby mattw on Wed Nov 19, 2003 1:25 pm

The covers they did of Knockin' on Heaven's Door and Live and Let Die immediately get them a crap vote, not to mention 'The Spaghetti Incident' which I guess was a homage to their 'influences'

But I'd be a fool to deny that I listened to them constantly 5th-6th grade

generation split

Postby O H Lee on Thu Nov 20, 2003 4:30 pm

Opinions on Guns n Roses show a generational split:
If you're an old fart like me, GnR was just the latest in a line of lousy hard rock bands (preceded by Motley Crue)that all the burnouts (who said how much punk rocked "sucked") liked. The only positive aspect of GnR was the fact that they actually covered Dead Boys songs which flew over the heads of most of their fans.

Younger folks might remember GnR as the first ROCK bands they liked. Some find the present state of Axl and their last tour funny in a trainwreck way(me, I think it's pathetic)

I'm pretty young and I think that GNR is a lousy hard rock band.

NOT CRAP
WF: ??%infinite%$$$$$$$
Sweet Child O' Mine has one of the best of the cheesy 80s metal intros. The fact that Axl would run around on stage like a moron is awesomely tacky. The notion that at some point before he dies, there might be a new record is hilarious. I guess what I'm saying is that they deserve a NOT CRAP for being entertaining in a very bad way more so than for ever being a worthwhile band.
Better yet, eat the placenta!!!

I mildly dislike GNR like I mildly dislike getting red hot needles shoved under my fingernails.






crap I hate with a passion.
the song people should associate with Axl should be "Prayer to God"
