This awesome distressed rock tee is for the hard rock band Guns N Roses for their 1987 debut album Appetite for Destruction. The album was a huge success, selling over 30 million copies, which made it one of the best selling records of all time and it features hit singles such as "Welcome To The Jungle", "Paradise City", and "Sweet Child o' Mine" which became the band's only single to reach the Billboard Hot 100. The group consisting of Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler had just been signed to Geffen Records.
"Welcome to the Jungle" was the first single issued off the album. David Geffen managed to convince MTV to play the music video for the song during their after-hours rotation and heavy metal fans quickly took notice and began requesting the song regularly. It was eventually used in the 1988 Clint Eastwood movie The Dead Pool, and members of the band each got to make a cameo appearance in the film.
Appetite For Destruction was followed a year later by the release of G N' R Lies, which managed to make it to the number two spot on the Billboard 200, and it included the top five single "Patience".
The tag says extra large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult large. This shirt is distressed. It is very thin with a hole in the front, see pics.
