Appetite for Destruction

From Academic Kids

(Redirected from Appetite For Destruction)

Template:Album infoboxAppetite for Destruction was rock and roll band Guns N' Roses' breakthrough album. Beginning with the hit "Welcome to the Jungle", Appetite for Destruction added a new element to hair metal using influences from then-groundbreaking thrash metal bands and classic, anthemic choruses. The album was a #1 American hit and worldwide sales exceeded 20 million.

"Welcome to the Jungle", "Paradise City", and "Sweet Child O' Mine" are all enduring songs, highly characteristic of Guns n' Roses and influential in the American popular music scene, as well as frequent covers.

The original sleeve, based on the Robert Williams painting Appetite for Destruction, depicting a robot rapist getting his comeuppance, was withdrawn soon after release and only used in a few countries. The painting was moved to the inner sleeve.

In 2003 the TV network VH1 named Appetite for Destruction the 42nd greatest album of all time. In 2001 Q magazine named it as one of the 50 Heaviest Albums Of All Time.
