Top Ten Best Guns N' Roses Albums


The Top Ten

1 Appetite for Destruction

A note perfect album. There has never been an album like this one.

Flows better than "Use Your Illusion 1 and 2.''

This one is the best because its got the 5 original members Use Your Illusion 1-2 are good to but not as good as Appertite.

It started Gn'R. If another album were to have been released before this we may not have the band we know and love.

2 Use Your Illusion 2

I voted for this, purely for Estranged.

Appetite for destruction is good, but overrated. This one is better. - johnnydoe82

Some awesome hits including Civil War, You Could be Mine, Estranged and Knockin' on Heavens Door

Enstranged, Don't Cry, Get in the ring, Locomotive, You could be mine, So fine, Civil War, Knockin' on heavans door, Pretty Tied up, Yesterdays and MY WORLD! This pwns!

3 Use Your Illusion 1

The best Illusion record!

My favourite from Guns N' Roses but prefer IZZY STRADLIN & THE JU JU HOUNDS

Appetite is always gonna b number one but this comes right after! this should be number two with great songs like back off bitch, november rain, perfect crime, and coma! Pretty much every song on this album is awesome!

IT kicks ass, and had so many possible singles. If use your illusion one had been released as two separate albums, they would have scored twice the chart success. You can only have so many singles per album. Perfect crime, bad apples, bad obsession. I could go on

4 GN'R Lies

Amazing album. Izzy Stradlins song writing on Patience should alone make this top 3 with Appetite. Lies is something of an extension of Appetite for Destruction with tracks from before and after Appetite. Tracks like Mama Kin and Used to love her are always forgotten and underrated.

There are no bad songs on this album and it also has the original 5 members. It's better than the Illusions.

This should be number 2, behind Appetite for Destruction.

This should be number 2

5 Chinese Democracy

Imagine this. It's 1963 and The Beatles just released their debut album "Please, Please Me". No doubt a classic. Then nothing happens for another six years until they resurface looking nearly unrecognizable and their second album is "Abbey Road".

Because People had time to acclimate to their meteoric progression, it's now remembered as a classic. However, if it had gone the way I had just described it, everyone would have thought it was garbage. Just take that into consideration next time you listen to Chinese Democracy. No question, it only trails second behind Appetite, and that's not be a large margin. This is just a different album from a musician who has grown out of his old skin. Nothing more. The talent is still there.

Radiohead though? I think it could have worked, with the quality of the songs on Abbey Road. - JoLeKosovo

Underrated album. Actually a good one, thanks to Buckethead. - Merkwurdigliebe

Most underrated Guns album because people hate Axl's ego because of which he fired the other amazing members of the original best line-up, but Axl showed that he can handle a band with average members and make it one of the best. Axl, you are awesome! - ben10kenobi

People overlook this album because it's not their beloved SLASH playing or isn't as aggressive as Appetite. This album is better than the Spaghetti Incident and Guns N' Roses Lies put together. The masterpieces such as 'Sorry', 'Prostitute', 'Madagascar', 'Street Of Dreams' and 'There Was A Time' are untouchable. The music has so much emotion and lyrical beauty. People hate this album and aren't willing to give it a try because they hate change. If the classic lineup had been on this album people would've loved it. I'm happy the classic lineup didn't play on this otherwise it wouldn't have that Industrial / Experimental / Artistic sound that I love

6 Greatest Hits

This greatest hits album of the band that we know and love, it has all of their best songs from all of their albums. So, buy this album instead of buying any of the other albums. It is a true masterpiece and should be number one of the best Guns N' Roses album of all time.

Best Hits with a track listing of Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O' Mine, Patience, Paradise City, Knockin' on Heavens Door, Civil War, You Could be Mine, Don't Cry, November Rain, Live And Let Die, Yesterdays, Ain't It Fun, Since I Don't Have You and Sympathy for the Devil. It is a true masterpiece, shound be no. 1

I own this in 5 different formats. It has all the best from each album. next is appitite for destruction.

All the greatest songs on one album! - booklover1

7 The Spaghetti Incident?

This actually has a lot of great Songs Highlights are since I don't have you, down on the farm, Duff Mckagan sings on attitude, you can't put your arms around a memory, and new rose.

Such an underrated album

The spaghetti incident wouldn't be my first choice of Guns N' Roses, but if I was really desperate to listen to gn'r, and it was the only album I could get my hands on, I might listen to a few songs.

8 Live Era '87-'93

Fantastic Live Album, has all of guns's best songs all live and they were at their best live. Brilliant.

9 Live Like A Suicide

This one owns Appetite, well I also like Appetite.
