We Asked, You Answered... Here Are The Five Songs Gunners Need To Play Live

With Guns N' Roses tour just around the corner we wanted to know what's one song you wanna hear Gunners play?

Well, we asked and you answered! And what a list it is... See below.

5. Get In The Ring

One of the most explicit songs Guns N' Roses ever did. It features on the hugely popular Use Your Illusion II album. The band didn't do an official video of this. But the Axl tirade is just classic Axl. He doesn't pull any punches. Imagine of he had twitter back in the day!

4. Rocket Queen

This awesome version of "Rocket Queen" captures the original line-up just as the Appetite album was peaking. This performance was part of a live concert that Guns N' Roses did for MTV at New York's The Ritz.

3. Estranged

The third in a trilogy of songs (the others are "Don't Cry" and "November Rain"), this beast of a video was more like a mini-movie and was released as a single two years after the Use Your Illusion albums came out. The Slash melodies and solo at the end will be killer to hear live!

2. Sweet Child O’ Mine

This is the song the catapulted the band into the musical stratosphere. It's probably their biggest song... and it's still a fan favourite. The opening riff by Slash may have surpassed Deep Purple's "Smoke On The Water" as the most recognisable riff of all time. This video captures the band on the current Not In The Lifetime tour.

1. November Rain

When this song came out it blew a lot of fans away and divided others. This was Axl driving the band to be more than just a LA rock band... there were strings, piano, back-up singers and, of course, the concept video. It cost over one million dollars to make.. and the band paid for it with their own money! The second half the song, when the band revs up, will truly be something to see and hear live.

Honourable Mention

Civil War

This is arguably one of Guns N' Roses' crowning achievements... the spoken word that kicks off the song is probably the best use of a sample in a rock song! And Axl's voice... Can't wait to see them tear this up live! It'll choke you up.

Other songs you chose included: "My Michelle", "Welcome To The Jungle", "Coma", "Patience" and the GN'R Lies classic "Used To Love Her".
