Guns N’ Roses – Use Your Illusion I
Guns N’ Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1985. The band comprised vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. Their music is a fusion of punk rock, blues rock, heavy metal, and hard rock. In their early years, the band’s hedonism and rebelliousness drew comparisons to the early Rolling Stones and earned them the nickname “the most dangerous band in the world”. Guns N’ Roses have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including 45 million in the United States, making them one of the best-selling acts in history. Use Your Illusion I is their third studio album, released on September 17, 1991, the same day as its counterpart Use Your Illusion II. The Use Your Illusion albums were among the most anticipated in rock history. Predictions in the industry were of sales reaching the likes of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A., this despite the fact that major stores K-Mart and Walmart refused to stock the albums due to the profanity present.
