Build your own "Greatest Hits" album

Recommended Posts


Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, released on March 23, 2004. Released by Geffen Records in part because of the delay in the making of Chinese Democracy, the album was subject to lawsuits by band member Axl Rose and former band members, in an attempt to block its release due to its track listing.

Despite the album having almost no promotion, it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart and number three on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release. Greatest Hits re-entered the Billboard 200 at number three in March 2012, selling about 85,000 copies as part of a promotion by both Amazon and Google Play that saw the album sold for 25 cents for one day. The album has proven a popular seller, selling over six million copies in the United States by 2018. Greatest Hits is one of the longest charting albums in the Billboard 200 era, being one of only seven albums to notch at least 400 weeks on the chart by June 2017. As of July 2018, it has spent 441 weeks on the chart.

Is "Sympathy For The Devil" a greatest hit?

Is "Better" a greatest hit?

Is "Coma" a greatest hit?

Better, which charted on the rock charts at #18, is obviously more of a hit than Absurd, which failed to chart at all.

But "Absurd!" is their comeback single.

"Better" it's only a song known by the people who loves Axl Rose and his music. And nothing else.

"Absurd!" was a massive hit.

Okay, so more of a box set, and of course you got your t-shirts and your GNR baseball cap, and your 10% off ticket pass for $****, but while we still don't have another interesting record, one is allowed to fucking dream.

This thread looks like an excuse to make a list again. You're relapsing, go to another list-makers-anonymous meeting. You’re not a man of your word

I just wish the mods would ban this "personality" and be done with it lol.  The trolling is clear at this point

Fucking hell, I’m sure that not even Chris Jericho loved a list this much….

Petition to ban him? That’ll be a good list.

The dude has more of a list fetish than Rolling Stone magazine does

It wasn't specified GNR Greatest Hits, so here is my Greatest Hits for this forum in list form:

1.  People who don't make lists

2.  People who refrain from making lists

3.  People who realize making lists is not conversating

4.  People who think lists are dumb
