Sep 25, 1. Oct 20, Messages: Sep 25, 2. Didn't read, but I'll sum up my opinion with a 'no'. Choosing the best rock band ever is too subjective to realistically do. Should they be in the rock and roll hall of fame? But to call them the greatest rock band ever? How many people still listen to their music today?
Not just the generation that was around then, the new generation. Very few bands survive the test of time and developing an aged sound. The only band I can think of that I know a lot of people in this generation listen to is The Beatles. Fenix , Sep 25, Sep 26, 3.
Sep 26, 4. Interesting, I didn't know they were still around. Maybe I'll check it out when it comes out. Fenix , Sep 26, Jul 24, Messages: Sep 26, 5. Sep 26, 6. Nov 10, Messages: Sep 29, 7. Aug 13, Messages: Sep 29, 8. YourBloodyValentine , Sep 29, Jun 16, Messages: Sep 30, 9.
Jun 27, Messages: Oct 2, But when the fire and fury of Appetite for Destruction made their album Girls, Girls, Girls sound old and lame by comparison, the Crüe were forced to fight to reclaim their crown.
They came out swinging on their next album — and it's no coincidence that 's Dr. Feelgood would be the toughest, heaviest record the Crüe ever concocted. It Raised the Bar for Track-by-Track Album Quality While the Eighties produced no shortage of brilliant thrash-metal albums, it was difficult to find new albums from contemporary hard-rock and hair-metal bands where the "deep cuts" were anywhere as good as the hits.
But Appetite for Destructio n's road-tested track list was impressive all the way through. Brownstone," "My Michelle" and "Rocket Queen" even more. Appetite 's message was clear to rockers everywhere: Audiences deserved better than an album with a couple of hits and a ton of filler tracks.
It Turned Axl Rose into the Hottest Guest Vocalist in Rock Rose's high-powered yowl was everywhere in the late Eighties, and not just because Appetite 's songs were getting constant airplay.
Thanks to the album's success — and his own mercurial, bad-boy image — Rose suddenly became an in-demand guest vocalist for established rockers who wanted to add a fresh dose of coolness or credibility to their recordings or performances. Though all of the songs on Appetite were originals, the album's success sent GN'R fans searching frantically for their earlier EP Live?!
The band also spoke at length in interviews about their influences, which ranged from punk bands like the Sex Pistols and Misfits to glam rockers New York Dolls and Hanoi Rocks. Slash even admitted that his famous top hat was an homage to the late Marc Bolan of T.
As a result, many GN'R fans sought out records by these artists, most of whom were still quite underappreciated at the time. Appetite Exposed the Art of Robert Williams to a Wider Audience Legend has it that Axl found a postcard of Robert Williams' painting Appetite for Destruction , and jokingly presented it as a potential cover for the album, only for the rest of the band to go, "This is it!
The controversial original cover quickly vanished from the stores, making it an instant collector's item, but it also exposed Williams' brilliant, eye-popping "lowbrow" art to a much wider audience beyond the avant-garde art circles in which he traveled.
It Paved the Way For Nirvana It is an oft-repeated, widely-accepted claim that Nirvana and the Seattle grunge scene wiped out hair-metal bands like climate change wiped out the dinosaurs.
But in reality, Appetite for Destruction actually did most of the advance demolition work, as far as the hair-metal scene was concerned. The album's roots-oriented hard rock and gritty, reality-based lyrics made the hairspray-and-spandex crowd sound shallow and silly by comparison.
Its rebellious rage felt honest, instead of just another attention-grabbing pose. Once rock audiences realized that they wanted more of that kind of thing in their lives and on their stereos, hair metal's days were essentially numbered — and their ears were primed for more raw, real and rebellious hard rock, which would soon arrive in the form of grunge.
