Best Guns N' Roses Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Used to Love Her

This song is so cleverly written and fun to listen to. I love the stark contrast from the dark lyrics to the breezy, fun (almost relaxing) tone of the music itself.

Funny song when you don't take it seriously like I did when I first listened to it and was like, "What is this?! " Kinda the song you wanna dedicate to your girlfriend sometimes.

Only 22nd? Come on guys rate that fabulous song!

Great song for every guy that has an ex!

22Breakdown

The most underappreciated of their great "epic" songs, and by far the most cryptic. A seven-minute tour de force of beauty and carnage, euphoria and collapse. Axl's singing was never more impassioned or more moving than on the verses.

After taking a five year hiatus from Guns N' Roses, this song became my favorite. I always liked it, but as I got older, I appreciated how great it is. Should've definitely been more popular than it is.

One of the most underrated songs ever. This should be in the top ten, at least.

Yep, this one is so underrated alright. Makes me Breakdown ( let me hear it now)

23This I Love

This is for Axl Rose's haters. You guys hate the man who formed this band. Of course Slash cannot be replaced but see what a good job Buckethead and the other guy are doing. Moving on, this song is brilliant and Axl has still got it in him to pump out touching songs. Their new album is not Appetite for Destruction for sure, but it has got a lot in it to pump you up if you guys would just stop thinking about the past! Please listen to this and Shackler's Revenge, Better and a few more songs and you'll realize that G'N'R are still very good! - ben10kenobi

It will make you cry, if you were denied by your first love!

the best from the new album (chinese democracy) - the solo is simply passionate

If only this song was released in the 90's with better vocals

24Better

How is this amazing song not any higher I was expecting this song to be in the top ten at least but it's so low, seriously this song is awesome, I have a brother who hates guns n roses ( he's an idiot ) any way I showed him this song and he LOVED IT

One of their best songs. I just can't stop listening to it! Axl Rose again is incredible. Well, I can say all of them are just unstoppable.

Great song, stacks up well with their classics both in terms of lyrics and musicianship.

This song should be in top 12

25Garden of Eden

Straight up bad ass rock n roll! Not nearly their most popular song but it has always been my favorite. Great song to get you pumped up!

Axl's vocals are amazing and it's not an easy task to sing that way and reach those notes and change keys that quickly

The Four Horsemen sounds like this.

26Locomotive (Complicity)

This song is so cool, sort of funk metal kind of thing which works so well in this song. Definitely a top 5 off of UYI II

This song is slightly underrated but I think it was one of the best from the illusions

This is one of the best songs I have ever heard

27Out Ta Get Me

One of the best songs of them, it�'s not the best but should be definitely in the top ten!

The song that makes you wanna go out and start a riot (which it did several times). Probably my 3rd or 4th favorite song by them.

28Since I Don't Have You

What is this song doing on 20th position. It deserves better! The riffs in this song also the amazing vocals! Damn! They're awesome!

Great take on a classic song! Slash's solo is insane! All in all, it's a great song you can't take off repeat!

I thought I would find it in the top 3

This deserves to be in at least top 5!

2914 Years

14 Years was written and performed by the great Izzy Stradlin, I personally think he carried the blues and soul of Guns N Roses. All the songs he composed were the reason why Guns N' Roses existed in the first place. Sad to say but when Izzy left after finishing Illusions 1 and 2, this is where Guns N' Roses started to lose its place..

Its been 14 years of silence its been 14 years of pain its been 14 years that are gone forever and I'll never have again

This song should be higher in the list. Great vocals from Stradlin, a very catchy and sweet song.

Amazing song

30Don't Damn Me

Best guns n roses song. It has the best lyrics of any of their songs. This should definitely be in the top ten. Along with sweet child, welcome to the jungle, and paradise city and some other great songs. Don't damn me is the best song off use your illusion 1.

This is my favourite song! It speaks on human emotions. You would have to be stupid not to like this song. Everyone can take something from this song. Definitely one of the best songs Guns N' Roses have done, including the "New" band.

This song in my opinion is the greatest guns and roses song ever made. I think the lyrics are the greatest song lyrics I have ever heard in a song.

I love the message in this song. Songwriters must have been gods.

31Street of Dreams

If this song was made with the original lineup, everybody would have it in their top 10. I wish all the Axl haters would give Chinese Democracy a chance so they can discover killer tracks like this one.

I find this song a little bit basic and kind of a transition through the songs before and after it on Democracy. Nice song, but not my favorite.

Best romantic song ever made by Axl Rose and his comrades.

Amazing song and so underrated.

32Back Off Bitch

This song is very underrated! The intro is so cool! On par with welcome to the jungle in my opinion

SONG rocks! This is rock n roll. I've thought of my ex's more than once while listening to this song.

33Sorry

One of the new Guns N' Roses songs pretty good for the new song

A bit boring, but well written.

34You're Crazy

Fast and raw, that's real rock

35Don't Cry (Alternate Lyrics)

Sad, and kind of disappointing that they chose to put it with Don't Cry's chores, the songs are completely different.

This version is so much better than the original.

36Sympathy for the Devil

Written by Mick Jagger, it's just a cover, they only did it for Interview with the vampire, so what? It's great, and that's all that matters.

Come on this song should be at least 8

I like this version much better then the original.

Anton LaVey's song

37Dead Horse

This song is a classic. Should be part of obligatory literature in schools

Sick of this life, not that you'd care, I'm not the only one with whome this feelings I shared...
Superb lyrics, great song which deserves to be higher that this poor 54th place :/:/

This one should be a lot higher. At least in top 15.

This The Best Song...

38The Garden

Listen to the lyrics, read them, and then watch the video. While their other songs have been my favorites over the years, now that I am older and better understand the world at large, and see what has come to pass in my generation, and seen the the progression of each member of the band before and since then, I've realized the caution of this song.

In my opinion it is one of the most honest songs Guns N' Roses ever created, whether or not they knew it at the time. Combine that honesty with the aggressive but beautiful melody, throw in menacing Alice Cooper (who I have never known to collaborate on lame projects) to counter Axl's (soothing! ) tones, and all becomes clear. I don't know any other song that demonstrates such duality, such "A Crazy Man's Utopia" that didn't send a mixed message, in the "The Garden" the message becomes clear.

Such is the genius of this song.

I am sure you will disagree... In response I quote the song: "If you're lost no one can show ...more

I had no idea this was Alice Cooper singing! Cool song, but the guitar solos start to bore me after a while. The fade out I didn't like either. Lyrics and vocals are great though. It should be higher on the list for sure.

Good lyrics featuring alice cooper. Heavy guitar solo in the middle. Love it.

This song is THE song.

39I.R.S.

Very catchy, the vocals kind of get to you and you have to use the lyric sheet to see what he's saying.

I can't believe how long this song is. I suppose some gunners are just in complete denial and won't bother to give Chinese a chance. Just remember it happened with UYI as well. I'm still wrapping my head around that bad boy!

Another killer song from Chinese Democracy. When this song was leaked, I realized that C.D. was gonna be a legit Guns N' Roses album.

40Shackler's Revenge

Surprisingly brilliant song and MADDENINGLY AWESOME CHORUS! Guns and roses still have the ability to put out such wonderful tracks. Guns and roses are not dead, and they will never be, if they continue making such songs. Axl's singing is reminiscent of Welcome To The Jungle, but seriously, the chorus is the best Guns N' Roses chorus by a mile!

THe only song on the new album that I can listen to. It is amazing how Axl was able to sing with different voices. Overall, The best of the new Guns N' Roses.

one of their newest songs amazing singing by axl

Sweet god! What a song!
