One of the only hair metal bands from the 80's to survive today along with Bon Jovi, though unlike Bon Jovi gn'r is known for more than 3 songs. They stand out from the crowd because of their musical talent and their innovative techinques. Their leader, Axl Rose, is the only orriginal bandmember remaining (unless you count Dizzy Reed, their original keyboardist), but the true heart and soul is guitarist Slash. The entire band, in all of it's lineups, has been good though. It once featured Buckethead, a guitarist who may be even better than Slash.
Their debut album, appetite for destruction, is the highest selling debut of all time. Their other albums have also been great, though appetite is generally seen as their best work ever.
They were known for sex, drugs, and rock n' roll to the letter, which didn't go well with the so-called moral majority, and their ways made some, like Kurt Cobain's fans, say they objectified women. This may be true, but they rock all the same. And anyway, "sweet childo' mine"'s words are based on a poem axl wrote for his girlfriend.
They are also controversial for their song One in a Million which spoke of "police and niggers" and "immigrants and faggots," causing many to flinch. But the people who call it offensive obviously didn't listen to the last verse "radicals and rascists, don't point your fingers at me." and didn't read the album title G n' R Lies.
Guns n' Roses is one of the best bands ever. They came from being played at 5 AM on MTV to huge success.

Guns N Roses' were one of greatest rock bands of the eighties and could be easily claimed as one of the best ever. They split up due to Axl Rose wanting to much control and generally being a dick. Since they broke up he has tried to reform the band with new members, but they are now just an empty shell. The closest thing to the real Guns N' Roses now is Velvet Revolver.
"What ever happened to Guns N' Roses?"

Best hair metal band ever, Their debut album, Appetite for Destruction, sold 20 million copies and had three singles in the top 10. Words aren't enough to describe them, listen to their music.
"Welcome to the Jungle" is an old song, but it's way ahead the present-day pop, hip-hop, and nu-metal crack hits.

A terrible excuse for music. Miserable instrumentalists, lyricists, and composers. Simply put, they FUCKING SUCK! Axl Rose has zero talent, and has to cover it up by whining like a newborn baby.
Slash? Have you morons ever heard of Jimi Hendrix or Eric Clapton? Guns n' Roses couldn't lick Led Zeppelin's sweaty, hairy BALLS!
