I hated them less than I hated the other hair metal bands of the era, but not enough to buy a record.

I cannot believe everyone likes Paradise City.

IMO, not only are the tune and Rose's screeching voice annoying, but the lyrics are downright moronic.

Take me down to the Paradise City

Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

Please take me home.


Geeeeez....


Half of the song is that same line repeated over and over. It's a 5 minute song that could have been trimmed to 3 minutes,

Paradise City is a great song , the song that Axl REALLY sounds powerful in. He sounds much better in it than in Welcome To The Jungle.

202 votes for Paradise City as best Guns And Roses song means that Paradise City is the best Guns And Roses song!

Whoopee shît.

I wonder how many of those 203 votes were cast by you and your "friends".

I have a very difficult time believing that 203 registered members of this forum have even visited this site in the past year, much less cast votes in this thread.

...let alone care at all about GnR, or care enough about them to place a vote.

Besides, I'd expect Welcome to the Jungle would win, or at least do a lot better than 3 votes.

On top of all that, more popular doesn't equate to better.

I can honestly say none of my "Friends," voted.

Can't stand Rose's singing voice.

Just not my thing.


Well, Axl Rose isn't gyrating for you, perse, he's gyrating for his Female Fans.

ACTUALLY, I listened to Sweet Child Of Mine today and it is also a phenomenal song. It MIGHT be better than Paradise City....

Sweet Child Of Mine (Possibly)
Paradise City
Welcome To The Jungle

There IS NO "Best" Guns & Roses song because THEY ALL SUCK.

And IDGAF who Axl Rose was gyrating for.

I couldn't stand him from the first time I laid eyes on him and heard his screeching voice.

I have a confession to make.... I "Stuffed the ballot," to the Max for Paradise City... Hence why Paradise City has a REALLY disproportionate amount of votes for it. The REAL votes were about 3 votes for Paradise City, meaning that Welcome To The Jungle and Paradise City technically have the same amount of votes as "Best," Guns And Roses song...

You already suspected that the HUGE majority of those votes for Paradise City were done by me... I'm just admitting it.

I decided to go look for ACTUAL Guns And Roses Fan boards and I found Multiple Websites! I can go post about how phenomenal Paradise City and Sweet Child Of mine is on those Websites!

Hmm. An ACTUAL Guns And Roses fan on the Guns And Roses Fan Website replied something like,"Welcome To The Jungle is the better song out of Welcome To The Jungle and Paradise City. I don't really like the chorus of Paradise City. Paradise City chorus sounds kind of ,"jolly" and Welcome To The Jungle, Axl sounds much more aggressive and it sounds better....

Hmm. Axl gets downright aggressive in the 6:53 version. Especially the last two minutes. He gives off the vibe of,"Take me to the Paradise City now Damnit!" Vibe! He goes from a wistful, nostalgic type of,"I'd like to go to the Paradise City, to,"I NEED to go to to the Paradise City, I'd do anything to go to the Paradise City, I'm desperate to go to the Paradise City!" He sounds damn near possessed in those last two minutes.

My guess is that, on a GnR website, the last thing they'd want to talk about would be the hits. These are serious fans. It'd be like going on a Led Zeppelin site and expecting everyone to talk about Stairway to Heaven, probably the last song a Led Zeppelin fan would want to talk about.

Serious fans rarely take the big hits as seriously as you would.

I'm a newer Fan of Guns And Roses so I'm sure they'd cut me a lot of slack.... In fact, they might just notice that I spell it Guns And Roses and not Guns N Roses.

I do the same thing.

Aamof, I didn't realize I was spelling it "wrong" until I read your post, because that band has never commanded enough of my attention to even notice how they spell it.

I will from now on, look to my lack of knowledge on that point as a source of pride.
