Guns & Roses, Guns and Roses


I discovered that I scream the same way whether I'm about to be devoured by a Great White or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot. I'm late to everything. I've always wanted to have it written in my will that when I die, the coffin shows up a half hour late and says on the side, like in gold, 'Sorry I'm Late'. Fear is where there is no love. Love is where there is no fear. ~Axl Rose~

There were three guys on a plane. All of them had their hands out of the windows. One had a box of gold. One had a box of silver. One had a nuclear bomb. Guy #1 dropped the gold and someone said, "Yay! I'm rich!" Guy #2 dropped the silver and someone said, "Ouch! A big box of silver landed on my head!" Guy #3 dropped the nuclear bomb and Axl Rose said, "Slash played a guitar solo and the house blew up!"

Band Name Origins:

  • Guns 'n' Roses got there name when Tracii Guns of "L.A. Guns" started a band with Axle Rose. They didn't get along, so Tracii left the band and started "L.A. Guns" while Axle stuck with the name "Guns 'n' Roses." Submitted by: Mark Godwin
  • Slash said in an interview on Conan O'Brien that "Originally I wanted to call the band Guns N' Robots. I still believe that if we had just called ourselves 'Guns N' Robots' we'd still be together." Submitted by: The Robmaster 2000!

Stupid Band Names:

  • Come on, did any one ever hear Axle Rose's voice, can it get any higher? How can a band like that pull of a name like Guns and Roses? They should be just Roses! Submitted by: Floyde the stondent

The song ends with a very raucous, extended jam, with Axl Rose repeating these lines over and over and over. There's one time where it sounds like actually says pregnant instead of pretty.

Song Lyrics That Mention Brand Name Products:

The Lyrics:
I'm on the nightrain, bottoms up
I'm on the nightrain, fill my cup I'm on the nightrain, ready to crash and burn
I never learn
I'm on the nightrain, I love that stuff
I'm on the nightrain, I can never get enough
Product Brand Name:
Night Train Express, usually abbreviated to Night Train, typically contains 17.5% ABV. Night Train Express has been condemned by some civic leaders who think inexpensive high alcohol content drinks contribute to vagrancy and public drunkenness. A full bottle was consumed by Joliet Jake in The Blues Brothers, after which he holds his head and refers to it as a "mean wine". The song "Nightrain" by rock band Guns N' Roses also pays tribute to this spirit.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Get In The Ring"

Crime Records:

"Riot act"
Rose had pleaded innocent to four misdemeanor counts of assault and one count of property damage stemming from the riot that broke out during his July 2, 1991, concert at the Riverport Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, just outside St. Louis. Videotape showed Rose diving into the concert crowd when he spotted someone with a camera, then punching a man. He then smashed his microphone on the stage and stormed off, ending the show early. Several thousand dollars' worth of property damage was reported by the outdoor theater from the ensuing riot. Gregory said he found that Rose was guilty of the charges "beyond a reasonable doubt." "Well, well, thanks to the lame ass security, I'm goin' home!" **BASH!**
