F You Songs: Guns N Roses- Get In The Ring

Guns N' Roses - Use Your Illusion II - Amazon.com Music

I think this one will be a fun topic. There are so many F You songs out there. Some are quite the F YOU and others are a little more subtle. Let’s have fun with this one. If you think of any that should be featured, comment, send me a message or email me.

The first one that came to mind was “Get In The Ring” by Guns N Roses. This song was a verbal assault on music critics with some publications and writers by name. Hit Prader, Kerrang, Spin and Circus magazines. Musically it’s a pretty rocking song. Interestingly too, this song was originally written by bassist Duff McKagan with the title of “Why Do You Look At Me When You Hate Me.” Axl then added his touch to it and we now have the end result. I have to say that the line “Why Do You Look At Me When You Hate Me” to start the song was the perfect opening line. Over the years too, every time I’m a bit frustrated with someone, this song always has a nice feel to it and when you sing along, it does make you feel a bit better, especially when you get to the end!

Great Music Videos: Guns N Roses- Estranged

I will never forget seeing the video for “Estranged” which is my favorite Guns N Roses song. First I wanted a pair of shoes like Axl had, and second I wanted to jump off an aircraft carrier (even though it’s an oil tanker) into the ocean and swim with dolphins. Yes, we all know the video is a bit far fetched but you can’t deny how awesome it really is. They don’t make videos like this anymore. If I’m not mistaken the cost of this video was in the millions too. Anyways enjoy this great video!
