Hair Metal

Guns N' Roses

Sunset Strip legends. Pure and simple, like the illicit drugs they were doing.

Guns N' Roses, a Hair Metal rock band from United States
Guns N' Roses | United States


Of all of the hair metal bands, perhaps the least deserving of the title. G'N'R' teased plenty of bangs, no doubt, but Aqua Net band they were not. Guns had a street tough imagine with songs to match. They were the kind of kids who would punch you in the face without bothering to take the cigarette out of their mouth first.

They could rock, they could take a serious tone, they could write a song like I Used To Love Her with a straight face and leave you wondering if it was a joke, dead serious, or both, all at the same time.

And through it all, they could party. FOR THE BAND!
