1987 çıkışlı Appetite For Destruction ile inanılmaz bir yükselişe geçen rock and roll grubu, Use Your Illusion albümleriyle de ivme kazanmaya devam etti. Son albüm Chinese Democracy 2008`de yayımlandı. Grup, orjinal kadrosuna dönüyorken hayranlar yeni bir albümün yolunu gözlüyor.

Guns N` Roses parçalarının sound`u ve enerjisi kadar sözleri de çok önemli. Ürkütücü, ilham verici, saldırgan, şiirsel, mücadeleci sözleri bulunan parçalar, Axl Rose`un sesiyle birleşiyor ve dinleyene geçiyor. Loudwire`ın yaptığı listede Izzy Stradlin ve Duff McKagan`ın yazdığı sözler de var:
