Let's Make Mixtapes

Keeping your childhood pop icons alive…even the ones you thought were dead.

I love typing the words “debut album” because the geek in me knows I’m about to tell you about an album you likely know and love (or don’t know but soon will) that was by an unknown group, and it was likely incredible and unique and different and life-changing (definitely for the band and hopefully for you.) Today, that band is Guns N’ Roses and that debut album is Appetite for Destruction.

Guns-N-Roses

Released on this day, July 21, 1987, the album would hit number one on the U.S. charts, and with the original lineup of Axl RoseSlash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler, the album would go on to sell an estimated 30 million copies (that’s million with an “m.”) It would spawn off several hits, including the following which is easily one of the most recognizable songs ever. Oh won’t you take a listen, sweet, sweet child (o’ mine)?
