Appetite for Destruction is the 1987 album by Guns N’ Roses. The album went on to sell over 30 million copies worldwide and hit #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. It contains the #1 hit “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and the top 10 hits “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Paradise City.” The album was ranked #62 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of 500 Greatest albums of all time. Musical styles on the album include Hard rock, heavy metal, and hair metal. The album’s massive success with consumers was fostered by the taboo of “sex, drugs and rock & roll” during the 1980s, when much of the cultural atmosphere in the US became informed by the Reagan-Bush Administration, the AIDS crisis, and the popularity of MTV. The album’s originally planned cover art depicted a robotic rapist about to be punished by a metal avenger. After several music retailers refused to stock the album, the label compromised and put the controversial cover art inside, replacing it with an image depicting a cross and skulls of the five band members.
