Guns N' Roses is an American rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band, led by frontman and co–founder Axl Rose, has gone through numerous line–up changes and controversies since their formation. The band has released six studio albums, three EPs and one live album during their career.

The band has sold an estimated 100 million albums worldwide, including over 43 million in the United States.[4] The band's 1987 major label debut album Appetite for Destruction has sold in excess of 28 million copies and reached number one on the United States Billboard 200. The album still remains the fastest–selling debut album in history.. In addition, the album charted three Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including "Sweet Child O' Mine" which reached number one.[6] The 1991 albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II debuted on the two highest spots on the Billboard 200 and have sold a combined 14 million copies in the United States alone. After over a decade of work, the band released their follow–up album, Chinese Democracy, in 2008.

Their mid–to–late eighties and early nineties years have been described by individuals in the music industry as the period in which "they brought forth a hedonistic rebelliousness and revived the punk attitude–driven hard rock scene, reminiscent of the early Rolling Stones"
