UCR best and worst Gn'R songs

Recommended Posts

Look at Your Game Girl is a great song. Do people dislike it because it's an Axl song?

The worst, or my least favorite, GNR song is "Used to Love Her"

I hate this song so much I can't put it into words. It's an incredibly boring, stupid abortion of a song and they should ban it forever and keep OIAM.

Don't Damn Me has one of my all time favourite Slash solos!

I've just never liked that song at all. Can't tell you the last time I actually listened to it. Maybe 15 years?

Ok I'll join, just the best, can't keep it to just one...this is always fun :lol:

AFD - Jungle, Brownstone, PC, SCOM, Rocket Queen

Lies - Patience, OIAM (I see it more as an art piece and never got too hung up about the lyrics) and having heard MTTC acoustic version I would count that to the best the acoustic tracks as well)

UYI I - NR, Dead Horse, Coma

UYI II - Civil War, 14 Years, Yesterdays, Breakdown, Locomotive, Estranged, YCBM...their best album IMO

TSI - I'll pass...love the idea, sound and production but prefer the originals over GNR covers

CD - TWAT, Catcher, Sorry, Prostitute

Covers - Don't let it bring you down, Sympathy, The Seeker (they do way too much covers and never dare to get really creative with them, but these are really good)

Personal #1 favourite GNR song: Breakdown

Actually, it's a Charles Manson song. Maybe that's why people dislike it. I think aside from being a psycho, Manson was quite a talented musician and songwriter, too bad he became "famous" in such horrible context and not for his music.

It is an incredible song but as adamsapple said it is a Manson song. I never liked that it was a hidden track either. It was too good for that no matter who wrote it.

I just meant as in only Axl was involved with having it on the record.

Sure Manson may have been a looney but the song itself is great. People need to learn to separate emotion from entertainment. Loving me some Cosby show reruns!

I can't be bothered thinking about what's best and what's worst from every album. But I think every GNR album (even Appetite) has a mix of brilliant and terrible songs, mostly leaning towards the former. 

 

For me, that's partly what makes me love them so much. Chinese Democracy aside, they were a band who completely ignored any attempt at self-consciousness - and I think that's a key part of what makes so many people love them so much.

Anything Goes. 

OIAM only for the lyrics.

My World, obviously.

I refuse to comment on cover albums.

Scraped or This I Love. But Scraped. 

So you’re saying you don’t like OIAM lyrics? Or that you do?

I'm sorry to be the dickhead who quotes himself, but does anyone actually disagree with this? In my opinion, one of the things that makes GNR so great is that they really don't give a fuck what anyone else thinks, including their fans.

I'm saying it's a good song but the lyrics ruin it.

It'll forever be tainted for the language Axl used.

Surprised some people picked So Fine as worst song over filler like My World and Shotgun Blues.

So Fine is a fun little song with some nice dynamic changes. Even if the lyrics suck and Duff can't really sing.

For those who said Riad for CD, listen to the opening to Scraped and for the full song with audio glitches.

Scraped is definitely the 2nd worst on the album, but it was way better live than Riad was so I kinda appreciate it a little more for that. And I like the 'buried' 2nd chorus in Scraped; "I'd give anything to know...". It's a more 'interesting' song overall than Riad, imperfections aside.

I admit i  like this song mainly because of the dynamics and slashs slide solo.

I just don't like the song, even though I didn't listed it as the worst one. It has nothing to do with who wrote it. People need to learn that there are different opinions about songs. 

There are songs listed as best songs that I thought about to list them as the worst and vice versa.

Many people here seem to love Since I Don't Have You, which I personally hate. I dislike it way more than LAYGG

It's fine, I wouldn't say it's great.  It is lacking a good hook and really outside of its orgins there isn't anything too interesting about it.   I wouldn't say it is bad but I wouldn't say it's good either.  It's fine.  Honestly until track 12 I really most of TSI? but I never cared much for either song that occupy track 12.   But I do think both were a good way to end the album.  

 

Raw Power and Human Being back to back is far more enjoyable ;)

Here's mine:

AFD

Best: WTTJ

Worst: You're Crazy (Not bad, but not great)

LIES

Best: Patience

Worst: Reckless Life (It's mostly Axl's whiny voice that I dislike on the live side of Lies. This is one song where Axl might actually sound better these days if he used the AC/DC voice. I much prefer Axl's voice on Nice Boys from 2010 compared to Nice Boys on Lies.)

UYI1 

Best: Coma

Worst: Back Of Bitch (it's too cheesy for my taste)

UYI2

Best: Estranged

Worst: My World (If you can even call it a song)

SI

Best: Down On The Farm

Worst: Buick Makane (it's just boring)

CD

Best: Better

Worst: If The World (it's too cheesy for my taste)
