Here are the top 5 things we bet you didn't know about GNR (via AXS)
5. Geffen, GNR's record label, rejected the first cover idea for Appetite for Destruction.
The band’s debut album cover featured an image of a cross and skulls of the five band members, but that replaced controversial artwork of a robotic rapist about to be punished by a metal avenger. In a 2011 interview with VH1's "That Metal Show," Rose revealed that he initially wanted the album's cover art to be the famous photo of the Space Shuttle Challenger exploding, but the label rejected that idea, too.
4. Duff McKagan inspired a "Simpsons" trademark.
3. Two of the most iconic GNR songs are about real-life loves.
2. Axl just missed Kurt Cobain's spit.
After years of bad blood among the original bandmates, Rose famously skipped Gun N’ Roses’ 2012 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Citing mixed feelings on the event as well as confusion about what the purpose of the Hall of Fame really is, the rocker later apologized in an open letter to the city of Cleveland and all of his fans.
