Your Least Favorite Among the GN'R Hits

Recommended Posts

For me, not really a big fan of November Rain and Don't Cry. Just not a fan of their very slow songs... same thing I do not like I Dont Wanna Miss a Thing of Aerosmith. Love the outro guitars of NR, but thats about it.

They aren't hits, but I don't see why a lot of people like Don't Damn Me. Get in the ring, likewise. I prefer listening to live tracks, just feel like the majority of UYI tracks are too overproduced and badly mixed.

Paradise City is probably my least favorite hit. I feel it's lyrically shallow and when it comes to rockers, I prefer the faster one's like Nightrain, Don't Damn Me etc... I'm not saying PC is a bad song. It's just my least favorite of the hits. KOHD would be my second least favorite. Not bad either, but I prefer Dylan's version.

I hate Don't Wanna Miss A Thing but I love November Rain. That's because Don't Wanna Miss A Thing is a pop song and November Rain is the opposite of that. NR is closer to classical music.

Either Sweet Child or WTTJ because they're both way overplayed. I can still jam out to Paradise City every once in a while though. I've gotten back into November Rain and as a musician have really begun to appreciate the subtle things in the song. It's a huge cliche at this point, but the song is a masterpiece.

Dont Cry. But I do like Alt Lyrics. Weird. Also not huge on NR.

I do love OTGM but I always felt like the great promise of the intro was never fully lived up to in the rest of the song. Awesome track though.

PC?! You always were crazy @killuridols, but I never knew you were THAT crazy!

Blame it on Mickey, how bad it sounds nowadays and how it's been the show closer for fucking 30 years.

How can anyone not be fed up with it? :drool:

Aside from KOHD I like them all to this day... I might skip one once in awhile when they come on the radio but there are still plenty of times I will crank the same song I skipped the week before.  I do love Knocking On Heavens Door but the studio version just kind of sucks with all the background singers, overdubs and all Axl's layered vocals.  I still love all the old live versions.

Live and Let Die. I liked it live but I've never once thought to myself "you know what I want to hear right now? Live and Let Die."

They're not "hits" per se, but two songs everyone else seems to love that I don't are Out Ta Get Me and Think About You.

The easy answer if we include all tracks (sans SFTD) on the 'Greatest Hits' album as a list of their hits: Since I Don't Have You

The tough answer if we ignore TSI tracks on the 'Greatest Hits' album: Yesterdays

It was difficult to decide between Yesterdays and KOHD but I've found myself skipping Yesterdays more than KOHD since I started listening to UYI2 back in 1991 :lol:

Live & Let Die and Mr. Brownstone.

They are okaaay, but I never feel like I want to listen to them.

EDIT: I still hate Used To Love Her. That song just sucks the life out of me. My least favorite GNR song.

Life never feels more eternal then when you're at a Guns N' Roses show and it is mid-way through ''knock knock Knockin' on heaven's dawawa''.

I actually can’t say I dislike any of the hits. I have heard that Bad Apples is a fan favorite, but I’ve never really gotten too into it. I still like it, but I would rather listen to most other GNR songs. For Metallica though, I would say Enter Sandman. That song is so overplayed when the band has 5 albums worth of material all better than that song.
