Stupid question imo. None of the other hits were for movies so what's the difference with You Could Be Mine?

You know...
I love YCBM... It was one of the few songs on UYI that had the appetite vibe. Because it was origionally in the cannon to go on AFD. It was said somewhere, I can't remember where.

The amazing drum into, I've always wondered what it would sound like with Adler, maybe no where as good as with Sorum. I didn't like brains interpretation of it, but Frank Nails It.

And the awesome Axl Rant is amazing. While you've been breaking down my back I've been racking out my brain.

Yeah sure the chorus is repetitive but a little price to pay for an awesome song. :) God I love GNF'NR's

Dublin 2010... my fav. audio version. :)

The real question should be if UCBM was released on appetite, how would that have changed things?
Would it have been a hit....what single would it have been......what would have replaced it as an early rock single from Illusions?

Nah, it isn't as good as NR, DC or Estranged.

Even Yesterdays is better

I've always thought civil war and Yesterdays were their two most underrated songs.

YCBM is probably my favourite song from the illusions. Well, that and 14 years and dust n bones.

nah, NR is cheezy as fuck
YCBM is their best song, imo
Yesterdays? a good song, but not even the same league as YCBM.
Do you really compare ballads with YCBM?
loool

IMO YCBM and Shadow should have been on AFD (minus Anything goes)

UYI should have been 1 sick album with all the best songs.

You Could Be Mine is a song that took me a long time to get into. It's funny because stylistically it should have been my favourite Guns song on my first listen. Still, it seemed kind of boring. That changed not long after when I got the Tokyo DVDs and watched those for the first time. Axl's voice is very hit and miss on that show but he nails You Could Be Mine and I finally got into the song.

For the question at hand, I'm sure it would have still charted and I'm sure it still would have been a single. The movie just gave it extra promotion.

I read they played a bunch of songs for Arnold & team. They selected YCBM to be the single.
It may never have been a single without T2. Regardless, everything GN'R did back then was gold.

It would have been a huge hit regardless. YCBM helped T2, one could make the argument. AFD made GNR the hottest band and people were salivating over the new prospect of a new album, to the point in which they released Lies to tide them over.

Those who are questioning whether YCBM would have been a hit without T2 need to remember the queues and frenzy when UYI was released. GN'R were the biggest band in the land and the prospect of new music had the public very excited. That was the environment at that time.

One thing that always bothered me about Terminator 2 was that the YCBM video had significant pieces of footage which were not in the theatrical release of the movie (like when Arnold comes out of the metal press, among others).

Be nice to Axl.
