Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

  1. The article calls GNR one of the most important and influential acts in music history. I’m sure that rolls off the tongue easy and sounds good. And GNR are certainly notable and hold an important place on hard rock music, but influential? I doubt it. GNR was pretty much the last major hard rock act to come out. In fact you could almost argue GNR rode out the rock and metal scene till there wasn’t one. Axl took the name and went into hiding for 16 years. If GnR were influential, who were they influential to? Rappers? Hip Hoppers? Britney Spears? There were really no solid hard rock acts that were derived from GmR. As least not any that matter.
