When Guns N' Roses emerged from L.A.'s Sunset Strip scene in the mid-1980s, the band embodied a dangerous, snarling-attitude and slashing-riffs side of rock & roll that had been absent in the countless hair-metal bands cluttering the music industry at the time. Led by volatile frontman W. Axl Rose, G N' R was powered by the dual-guitar attack of Izzy Stradlin and Slash that made the band's full-length debut, APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION, an instant classic.
The APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION follow-up, LIES, combined the band's live 1986 EP, LIVE LIKE A SUICIDE and four new studio tracks. The first half finds G N'R tearing it up in concert with such incendiary tracks as "Reckless Life" and "Nice Boys." These ripping anthems, along with a smoking cover of "Mama Kin" made the band the heir apparent to Aerosmith, the original bad boys of rock. The second half of LIES is what tossed G N'R into a sea of controversy. Although a track like the sensitively wrought "Lies" ruffled few feathers, songs like "Used to Love Her" and "One in a Million" brought on accusations of misogyny and bigotry.
