I've read some say that they feel the chorus of "Breakdown" sucks and ruins the potential the song had. Why? I feel it's a good chorus and it makes the song that much more unique because with the chrous you now have a song which has country, funk and ballad elements all in it. It fits and gives the song a sort of groove.

That whole song sucks. Not just the chorus.

Breakdown is a brilliant song. Great intro, awesome verses, unique chorus, great solo and I love the honkytonk piano playing. Definately in my top 5 UYI-era songs and probably in my top 10 all time favourites from Guns.

The chorus has no melody. That and Axl's talking outro are the only two flaws in an otherwise gorgeous song.

In regards to Slash, I read a desperate fan's message about, what if one of us were to die and looking back I had the possibility of a reunion now, blah blah blah. And my thoughts are, "Yeah, and while you're at the show your baby accidentally kicks a candle and burns your house down, killing himself and the rest of your family."

This. Axl ruined the outro with all the talkin'. Song is awesome.

I think it's a pretty underrated song. I loved it since first day I heard it. In my opinion, the chorus is ok.

I love Breakdown and I really hope they play it live, but that most likely will not happen :(

Doesn't matter what I say, they all made up their minds
I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now
But I find the strength to smile somehow"
