First ever GnR song that you heard?

Recommended Posts

1990 On a bus to soccer training I was 16, seen a lot of pictures of GNR and thought I would check them out by buying cassettes of Use your Illusion 1 & 2.

Played Illusion 2 first as it had the best review in a magazine.

First track Civil War......completely blown away!! 

Hooked ever since then, there will never ever be another Guns N Rose's.

Still play all the songs most days now with Use your Illusion 1 my favourite ever masterpiece!

If only they can release something new soon?!

I know that I'd heard a band at my junior high school play sweet Child at around the year 2000. I didn't like it.

The first time I know I heard the real deal was when I saw the video for paradise city in the fall of 2001. It really blew me away, it was the coolest thing I've heard (and seen) in my life, I taped it and watched it over and over again. Not long after that I bought appetite for destruction and was hooked.

Sweet child, definitely very early 90s.

my brother had the cassette of AFD but didn’t like it so he gave it to me, he was more into pearl jam/nirvana type stuff.

1991. 5 years old. My sister was supposed to take me to see 101 Dalmatians in theatre. Her boyfriend at the time had other plans. Took us to see T2.

That experience changed the course of my life.

1988 Welcome to the jungle. I was 4. Sister and her friend were watching me, the video came on and my sisters hot friend said that Axl was so hot and that she'd jump his bones. I didn't know what she meant, but I thought it sounded kinda awesome. Been a fan ever since!

I’m just happy I was there to witness the moment GNR really broke into the mainstream.

 

That Busta Rhymes remix is sick too.

1991 – I was a 17 and  fan of Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, considered myself as “metalhead”. One day a friend o'mine played me the intro of Jungle on full volume…

Oh my God that was IT. I still feel this..

1989 Sweet Child O'Mine, I was 14 years, hear the song in tv, a man with a Skeleton puppet made dance it with Sweet Child O'Mine, days later my brother put this song in his cassette and I said "Hey is the song of the skeleton puppet".

In this cassette my brother has Welcome to the jungle, Paradise City, Sweet Child O'Mine and the acoustic songs from lies. He never was hardly fan of the band, but this days he created a hardcore fan.

Jungle. Whenever it broke on the MTV/radio.  Then SCOM...PC and then it was off to the races.  Was a great time to be a teenager.

I was a 13 year young boy in 2004 and i played GTA San Andreas. That crazy song on Radio X was amazing. Welcome To The Junge.

October 1987. I was watching MTV with my father. We had just got cable at the time. A video montage came on of George Michael, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and a guy in an electric chair screaming like a banshee. My father said that's a great band. So Jungle was my first song that got me hooked on GNR.

My uncle had cable before us, so he would record the Headbanger's ball every Saturday night and we would scroll through the videos on Sunday after dinner. When I first saw "Welcome to the Jungle" I was like WTF?  My uncle said just wait the song is cool. My mother was hooked every since!

Not sure what we heard on the radio. Probably WTTJ. But I will never forget the video!
