Slash Talks Original NSFW Lyrics to "Paradise City"

FUSE TV - Slash Talks Original NSFW Lyrics to "Paradise City"

With Appetite for Destruction turning 25 tomorrow, Fuse spoke with legendary shredder Slash about Guns N' Roses' hard rock masterpiece and learned some… interesting things about the song "Paradise City."

"'Take me down to the Paradise City where the girls are fat and they got big titties,' I think that was my original lyric for it and the other guys changed it," Slash tells us, a smile creeping out from under his ever-present top hat, shades and curly locks. "We all thought it was funny but it wasn't going to make it on the album. I think that's how it went."

Slash also recalls that the now-classic "Welcome to the Jungle" didn't debut as well as the band expected. "It was a given that 'Welcome to the Jungle' would be the flagship song for the record," Slash says. "If I remember correctly, when it first came out it didn't get a massive response. It wasn't until 'Sweet Child O' Mine' that the other videos we did previously became big."

To hear Slash talk more about crafting one of the greatest debut albums of all time, watch the video above. And be sure to check out our photo gallery celebrating Appetite's 25 years, featuring pics from GnR's 1987 breakthrough performances
