How Guns N’ Roses Flexed Musical Muscle on Dazzling ‘Locomotive’

On a double album full of sprawling, genre-bending opuses, Guns N' Roses delivered arguably their most dazzling technical achievement with Use Your Illusion II's "Locomotive."Clocking in at 8:42, "Locomotive" marked the second-longest song on the second Illusion disc behind "Estranged," and it found Guns N' Roses dabbling in the nascent funk-metal that groups like Faith No More, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane's Addiction had recently popularized. Following the meteoric success of Appetite for […]

Guns N’ Roses Kissed Their Past Goodbye on ‘Yesterdays’

Guns N' Roses broke all sorts of new musical ground with their mammoth Use Your Illusion albums. They played things straight on the brisk, bluesy "Yesterdays," however, bidding farewell to their checkered past in pursuit of an even messier future.The third track (and third single) on Use Your Illusion II, "Yesterdays" split the difference between the rancorous blues-rock of Guns N' Roses' debut, Appetite for Destruction, and the high-brow art-rock of their new double-album […]

How Guns N’ Roses Built ’14 Years’ From Two Different Songs

Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin decided to make like Dr. Frankenstein after they both wrote songs titled "14 Years" for Guns N' Roses' Use Your Illusion albums."Axl Rose phoned me up and said he's written a song called '14 Years' too, which is a really bizarre coincidence," Stradlin recalled in a 1991 interview with Vox (as transcribed by Appetite for Discussion). "So, when he said that, I told him, 'Well […]

When Guns N’ Roses Took a Stance on Still-Relevant ‘Civil War’

If any other band presented a nearly eight-minute song that quoted speeches from Cool Hand Luke and the Peruvian Shining Path, incorporated a whistled bit of a mid-19th century song and made references to John F. Kennedy's assassination and the Vietnam War, you might raise an eyebrow. Or laugh 'em out of the room.When it's Guns N' Roses, though, nothing seems like much of a surprise. That's the case with "Civil […]

Guns N’ Roses’ Revealed Their Cynical Side on ‘Garden of Eden’

Guns n' Roses' punk inspirations surfaced in a prominent way on the Use Your Illusion I song "Garden of Eden."Buoyed by a thrashing tempo and choppy guitars, as well as a lengthy, winding Slash solo, the song clocks in at under three minutes. Axl Rose sings impossibly fast, which no doubt explains why the song has very rarely been played live.Lyrically, "Garden of Eden" seems rather prescient today, as it starts […]
