Guns N’ Roses

Guns N’ Roses are an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. Their debut album Appetite for Destruction was released two years later and is considered to be the eleventh-bestselling album of all time in the United States. However, it was not until the following year that it became a massive commercial success, after the band had extensively toured  and received vast airplay with the singles “Welcome to the Jungle”, “Paradise City” and “Sweet Child o’ Mine”. By the time of the release of their fourth studio album Use Your Illusion in 1991, the band had already become one of the most popular hard rock bands at the time.

Following many lineup changes and criticism from the media after departure of lead guitarist Slash and Duff McKagan in 1993, who rejoined the group in 2016, the band released their latest album Chinese Democracy in 2008. In 2015 Guns N’ Roses were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
