July 21st marks the 30th anniversary of Guns N' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction". Any fans of this album and/or Guns N' Roses? This is the best album from Guns N' Roses and still one of the great first albums from a band in rock history. The singles like "Welcome To The Jungle", "Paradise City", and "Sweet Child o' Mine" are classics, but the album tracks also help give the album a beating heart like "Mr. Brownstone", "My Michelle", and "Nightrain".

Along with Nirvana - Nevermind, Apetite for Destruction become two of the albums that helped boost my interest towards rock music and I still play it every now and then. I remember buying it in the summer of 2002, and could not wait to come home and listen to it. Fantastic album cover, even though I think another was planned but did not get used because of some censorship. Almost every track is a classic, but my favorite has to be:
For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth."
I hate Axel but its one of the greatest rock albums ever. Wish I heard it in 87. I think it was 89 when I first heard it. Remember buying the cheap cassette because the cover was missing, along with either Bon Jovi's New Jersey and Iron Maidens SSoaSS. I was all over the place back then but still love GnR's and Maiden
