Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the Jungle


by Guns N' Roses


Appetite for Destruction (1987)

Their debut album, arguably one of the very best hard rock albums ever made, contains few duds. Most of the album's songs are of the caliber of its singles "Welcome to the Jungle," "Paradise City," and "Sweet Child O' Mine."

Use Your Illusion I (1991)

Part one of GNR's follow-up album, I has some good hard rock as well as the epic hits "Don't Cry" and "November Rain."

Use Your Illusion II (1991)

Part two of the band's follow-up album, II features some excellent longer songs, including the fan favorite "Estranged" and GNR's best post-Appetite rocker, "You Could Be Mine." Also check out a great track with bassist Duff McKagen singing called "14 years."

Chinese Democracy (2008)

Surrounded by media myth a decade before its release, Chinese Democracy was always destined to fail to match rumors of its greatness—but that doesn't mean that it isn't a great record.
