80s Music - Guns N' Roses - Paradise City (1987)

Guns N' Roses was just an unbelievable band with a rock sound like no other.  Axl Rose had an amazing voice and a lot of critics say he's one of the best singers of all time and definitely an 80's music icon. (I agree) Growing up in the New York Tri-State area, when this song plays, it's like the national anthem.  

Flashback fun facts:
-Axl Rose combined two of his old bands (Hollywood Guns and LA Roses) to form Guns N' Roses
-The original band members consisted of lead singer Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler
-Paradise City was a single off the Appetite for Destruction album (1987) and was written in the back of a touring van.
