Best Guns N' Roses Songs

The Top Ten

Sweet Child O' Mine Sweet Child O' Mine Cover Art

Slash solo in this song is one of the best solos I ever listen... It seems there we are flying when he starts the guitar solo... AWESOME... Deserves the first place!

sweet child' o mine is my favourite song and in this song slash is the best

Nice solos, nice melody every thing is brilliant but should be like 2 or 3

This is one of the only songs I have ever listen to that brings out genuine emotion in me. Every time I listen to it, I feel as though I'm going to cry. To me at least, it is an absolute masterpiece; a song I can connect to from my very soul

November Rain November Rain Cover Art

Everything about this song is a masterpiece; a beautiful intro, a great buildup, amazing lyrics and an incredible combination guitar solos and piano use. Axl Rose's vocals were also at his best. I love Guns N Roses and this is not only my favourite song by them, but it's definitely one of my favourite songs of all time.

Sweet Child O' Mine and November Rain are both great songs, but for me November Rain edges Sweet Child O' Mine out just by a bit. November rain in my opinion is one of the most beautiful song ever made. Beautiful lyrics, nice piano work, a great orchestra sound, and great build up. Goes from a beautiful rock ballad to a great solo by Slash and finish is a powerful way. These are some of the reasons why for me November Rain is slightly better then Sweet Child O' Mine. November Rain is just the perfect Ballad.

Before I heard this song, I laughed when people said it had the best outro ever. I thought Happy Together had the best outro. Nevertheless I ended up listening to November Rain to hear this outro everyone talked about. It was a long song, but I felt as though it used its runtime perfectly. There were 2 good guitar solo’s I liked, and then all of a sudden the chords change. Everything changes. It’s just like the movie Se7en, and it made the entire song epic. It is one of my favorite songs, and I’ll never forget how caught off guard I get when the outro starts.

The most meaningful, powerful, moving and touching song of any band to date. Truly an unparalleled masterpiece. Perfect to listen to with a loved one, with friends, alone, before a big game, when you're down or in any setting really. It carries its own significance to each listener, and let's not forget the guitar solos. Mesmerizing and inspiring whether played on a guitar, piano, even a clarinet. History was made when this song came out.

Welcome to the Jungle Welcome to the Jungle Cover Art

This is just freaking classic GnR. It's like a classic. I have to agree with Slashrocks on this one.

appatite for distruction is my favorite album of all time, and this song is right at the top of the PURE ROCK that Guns N' Roses used to be, this is what axle needs to get beck

definite guns n roses, the sappy ballads are ok but gnr was all about the attitude and balls

'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! 'cause its ' good man! Come on I have nothing else to say I just really want to vote for goodness sake

Paradise City Paradise City Cover Art

Sweet child o mine should be 2nd actually. this track is like a legend. when slash plays the intro, the response is always huge! a great song!

This is the best GNR song ever sweet child of mine is good but we're talking about paradise city here

Welcome to the Jungle and November Rain are both exceptionally awesome songs, but you can listen to Paradise City for 100 times on loop and still wanna listen to it even more! It has got everything!

This is actually my favorite out of the three Appetite For Destruction singles.

Estranged Estranged Cover Art

Don't listen to the retard who says Estranged is best because there are "more key changes". This song is the best because it is an epic, flawless masterpiece; just listen to the song! Besides, Estranged only changes key once, just like Sweet Child and November Rain!

A long song, but my most listened to song of all time. I love everything about this song, the contrast between the two halves split up by a wonderful piano solo, 4 incredible solos and fine lyrics and voice work from Axl. The band really out did themselves with this absolute gem

Amazing vocals and best guitar solo ever! The most under rated Guns N' Roses song

I am gonna go for this one because this is their masterpiece. November rain too is good but way too commercial its a shame. This one is much more personal reflective and meaningful. You could be mine is my favorite 'hard' number. Don't cry (original) my favorite ballad coma is amazing and civil war despite its country feel one of their most passionate moments but overall estranged is still the most creative piece. A stroke of genius for axl and his band.

Knockin' on Heaven's Door Knockin' on Heaven's Door Cover Art

This one should be knocking # 1 position. The very best song of the world.

Dude this song is one of the BEST songs ever!

This song still plays in my head almost every day, you rule...!

Best song in the universe, love it, brilliant, better than any other song, will never change, worlds greatest, slash's best song

Civil War Civil War Cover Art

I am gonna say nothing its the best must be from the top 3 songs all of the songs up are great but in my opinion civil war is the best. Great guitar. Great singing and lyrics about war and freedom

Great song with an amazing anti-war message. Should be in the top 3.

The best of the best. Excellent Guitar work and matching lyrics, telling a killer story.

The best of gnr... must be number 3 or 5

Don't Cry (Original) Don't Cry (Original) Cover Art

Probably the greatest song ever written. It was a girl that Izzy was going out with that Axl really, really lIked. We've all met one special girl that we won't ever forget, every single one of us; and for Axl, she was it. When Izzy and he girl broke up, Axl asked her out and on their first date, she told him its not going to work out. He just put aside his masculinity for a minuet and started crying, and she told him "don't cry". The next day Axl and Izzy got together and wrote the song in five minuets. Axl has a lot attached to this song, and when he sings it, you can hear that he's giving it his all. He just gives so much when he sings this song, at the very end he sings notes I didn't even know we're humanly possible to sing. He forgets about everything else in the world and just sings. The song is about a woman leaving a man. Gives me chills every time. This song is a true masterpiece and definitely number one on my list.

Don't Cry is a song that defines Guns N' Roses. November Rain loses it after the second solo and you will hate Sweet Child after you have heard it enough no. of times. But don't cry is a complete song from the beginning to the end.

I listened to this song one particular day. It was when a girl I loved so much told me that she liked another man... Well, I was shocked... I turned up the radio, and who was on? You're right: Guns N' Roses! I did know some songs of Guns N' Roses, but not this: then I discovered what it meant to Axl Rose and, also, to me... It helped me to go beyond that horrible moment

One of the greatest songs ever made. Personally, it's my favorite. Guns N' Roses are one of the best bands, they have so many amazing songs... They're also my favorite band... But this song is special to me... Axl's voice... Slash's amazing solos... JUST PERFECT.

You Could Be Mine You Could Be Mine Cover Art

From Matt's Solo in the beginning, to Duff's groovy lick before the epic Dual Guitar riff from Slash and Izzy Stradlin to Axl's screeching vocals and throughout the whole song, It gave me goosebumps, because with your bitch slap rapping and your cocaine tongue, you get nothin' done

Nice to see the big 3 from Appetite all in the top 4.
But You Could Be Mine should replace November Rain up there.
This is the best GNR track NOT on Appetite!

Brilliant song! Really gets the blood pumping! You can tell they wrote it around the time of writing all the songs on Appetite and it could easily have been on that album. Terminator 2 was my favourite movie for a long time and it had the added bonus of having this song in it. T2 and You Could Be Mine: the perfect combination!

Definitely. My favorite, it hits so hard, love the guitar work. Solo is so epic, and the fact that it was used in one of the biggest badass movies with the biggest badass, Arnold, only adds to its greatness.

Patience Patience Cover Art

This should definitely be one of the top 3�s, if not, at least top 5�s. Such a great song!

this is one of the best slash is using a acoustic guitar which is what made this song so amazing

hahaha to the comment 'i will fight anyone who doesn't like this song' I shall back you up

Patience is a beautiful song, it should be in the top three because of guitar and vocals, I think guns n roses did there best on this song, one of the best ballads of all time

this song should definitely be in the top ten! If not top three, but number nine, not good enough and yeah sweet child o mine is good, but Patience is better

The Contenders

Nightrain Nightrain Cover Art

Appetite For Destruction was their best album... Guns N' Roses are one of the best bands of music history and this song too...

Definitely my favorite GNR song. It's unfortunate it wasn't more popular...

Under appreciated song from Guns N' Roses. This song incorporates everything that makes G N' ARE a legendary band. It was the filthy hard sounding guitar and Axl's incredible voice. It has the raging solo's, and holds up with Welcome To The Jungle as one of the best sounding songs of G N' R. It's sad that this song is often overlooked by the public.

One their best songs from the days when you could hear they had two guitarists, with Izzy opening the song with one of the best opening riffs in music history to the first solo which is shared between Izzy and Slash all the way through to Slash going all out towards the end

Mr. Brownstone Mr. Brownstone Cover Art

It has everything, a catchy riff, a good solo and a smart vocals. I love the line: I used to do a little but the little wouldn't do it so that little got more and more. I love it. Everytime I play it on guitar, people love it.

Everyone says that all their songs are about drugs... Well they are but this one is AWESOME! Nobody put my absolute face guns song (out ta get me) but this is #2 because it rocks for being a song all about heroin

Greatest song ever. This is so good, makes me wanna see them live. When I heard it the second time this is so damn nice

Very underrated song from them, the kind of song that just makes you feel like 'F yeah not a care in the world. Vocals aren't fantastic in the song but with great riff backing it up, good work from Adler on the drums and Duffs bass.

Rocket Queen Rocket Queen Cover Art

when the sliding solo ends you think what a great hard rock song by gnr but when the bridge comes and the 'i see you standing' part starts you're like wow just wanna stand up and dance like crazy... and then the OUTRO part with the solo... just AMAZING. nothing compares to this one... got to be at top 5

I might be too much but honey you are a b... you're BIT OBSCENE... Tokyo Version on 1992 is wow...

Why is this number twelve? This song is so great! Sickest main riff and bass line. First half is so dirty and wild but the second is romantic and emotional, joined by a tension building bridge that makes you believe that the second part will be the same as the first, but you are suddenly blown away by cleaner guitar and vocals with meaningful lyrics. Slash's solo is really solid too, the list goes on, but that last 2:50 is the most perfect moment in rock and roll history

The most underrated song on the list. One of the finest bass lines and riffs ever. Rocking first half, a great solo in the middle and an AMAZING second half, the outro is unreal and just such a catchy song that you can listen to over and over again.

Coma Coma Cover Art

The last 3 minutes of the song is probably the greatest moment in music history

In my opinion this song could be their best, but definitely top 5. It is so underrated that it's a crime. Once this song begins, its impossible to turn it off because it starts of good and just gets better and better with every second. It really doesn't get much better than this.

This song immediately grabs you tight and doesn't release you until the whole song is finished. Although it is 10 minutes long there is no moment it gets boring. I've always liked the combination of Axl Rose's voice and Slash' guitar skills, and this is one of the songs that shows me why.

Honestly the greatest Guns N' Roses song and the second greatest song ever behind One

Live and Let Die Live and Let Die Cover Art

This is honestly the best song you will ever hear by them, it's touched more people than anyone could imagine

This totally rock music.
They can change a lazy song to the very rock song!
This can be higher than nightrain and Chinese democracy!
This should be top 10!

Not as good as the original, but a nice take on it. Sir Paul McCartney's versions not perfect either, I wish there was a version that was across between them.

I thought this was a slow song (which I don't like slow songs, I love the fast metal or anything else fast.) Then I heard it on radio and I start head banging. LOL SO GOOD!

My Michelle My Michelle Cover Art

This song is incredible. the lyrics are intense, the guitars are great, the drums are great. Everything is on point. should be in the top 10

Best Guns N' Roses Song ever

I completely love this song in fact its my favorite song by Guns N Roses and its also off of their biggest albums this song is one the best also I really think that this song should be number 1 but for some reason everybody's favorite is Sweet Child O'Mine I do not know why but I prefer for My Michelle to be number 1

SO UNDErrated! From the first riff this song is in your face with its hard lyrics and guitar work! Amazing

It's So Easy It's So Easy Cover Art

OK so maybe not Sweet Child, Paradise City, or Welcome to the Jungle but deserves to be higher than 21st

incredible song, amazing vocals, great solo, the end of this number is really the highpoint! Underrated song..

What! This is their best! It's even better than sweet child, paradise city and welcome to the jungle!

My personal favorite Guns N' Roses song. I love the bass line, as well as the way Axl's singing. Guitar parts rock too. It's done perfectly. Wish it could be a bit longer though, although who knows, that could have ruined it. The mean lyrics kick ass, especially the second verse. I think it would be a good opener actually. But definitely is right next to Jungle in best songs ever.

Yesterdays Yesterdays Cover Art

This song is to good for #18 spot should be in top 10

It's a beautiful song, very meaningful for me. I wonder why its in the 18th place.

Great well written song mainly by Wes Arkeen (RIP), lyrics full of meaning

Don't Cry Don't Cry Cover Art

Just fantastic. One of the timeless Guns n Roses songs that you could listen to 24/7

Used to Love Her Used to Love Her Cover Art

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!

Pretty little tongue in cheek ditty. Even my kids sing along to this one!

Pretty Tied Up Pretty Tied Up Cover Art

Love listening to this, high volume in the car - my guilty pleasure!

Too fun and too rock n' roll. :3

Mindblowing song. Very catchy, changes tempo multiple times effortlessly. Underrated song.


One in a Million One in a Million Cover Art

LOVE THIS SONG! The beat to this song is unlike anything in the world... and then the solo at towards the end... BEAUTIFUL! Although the lyrics can be a little racist, you must realize that this is a song and we don't know what axl was truly meaning. Everything is so beautiful, my favorite song PERIOD!

The song is brilliant, if the lyrics were changed in two parts of the song, it would have topped charts. Right or wrong, I admire Axl's resistance to let people tell him he should Or should not say in his music.

By far their best song, only reason it's not further on top is that the lyrics convey a xenophobic mentality.

I can't say it is my favourite Roses but I do really like the song but I would like to put it out there that yeah the song's racist and homophobic but Axl has said he is not racist and that he had had bad experiences with gay people and that it is merely his artistic views and I mean seriously I'm 15, I should be vegan and protesting against anything that is even slightly un 'PC' but to be honest I love this song and I think it's a good tune so I don't know why all that people see in this song is the N-word and a homophobic slurr. Just lay of it. It ain't that bad.

Since I Don't Have You Since I Don't Have You Cover Art

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 song! It should be in top 10.

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!

Amazing and Romantic song

Out Ta Get Me Out Ta Get Me Cover Art

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

Out ta Get Me and Nightrain were there most underrated songs! Sweet Child O' Mine was good but extremely overrated. November Rain was overrated, I thought it sucked to begin with!

This Is One of their most underrated songs, along with Nightrain.

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.

Garden of Eden Garden of Eden Cover Art

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.

THIS SONG IS SO UNDERRATED! One of my favorites for sure. Pure Rock n' Roll!
