the song ”right next door to hell” was inspired by gabriella kantor, the then- neighbor of rose who claimed that he had hit her with ‘a really good bottle’ of chardonnay.. and a piece of chicken(?!). later on axl rose told the people magazine, “frankly, if i was going to hit her with a wine bottle, she wouldn’t have gotten up”.

“you could be mine”, the soundtrack of terminator judgment day was at first considered to be in the album appetite for destruction. but later on the label, geffen records decided against using it in the album.
g n’ r lies, aka lies is the second studio album by gn’r released in 1988 it is the last album to feature original drummer steven adler.
the front cover is a parody of tabloid newspapers, as are the linear notes. the cover art underwent many minor changes before it’s release on cd. first, in the bottom left corner reading "lies lies lies" originally read "wife-beating has been around for 10,000 years." secondly, instead of "elephant gives birth to midget", the original headline reads, "ladies, welcome to the dark ages." (see 2nd picture)
many copies of the original lp release also contained an uncensored picture of a nude model on the inner lp sleeve
(see 5th picture)
the first 4 tracks are taken off the album ”like ?!*@ like a suicide” that’s also the reason to why the backside is the front cover of ”live ?!*@ like a suicide” as well as the inner front sleeve is the back cover for ”live ?!*@ like a suicide” so it’s basically live ?!*@ like a suicide with 4 acoustic songs added.
(see 3rd and 4th picture)
the lyrics of the song one in a million caused huge controversy due to the use of racial and homophobic slurs. the cover art even features a description of the song ”one in a million” and at the end of the article axl apologized to those who would take offense ”this song is very simple and extremely generic or generalized, my apologies to those who may take offense”
side-a (g) (live ?!*@ like a suicide 1986)
1. reckless life
2. nice boys
3. move to the city
4. mama kin.
side-b (r) (acoustic 1988)
6. used to love her
7. you’re crazy
8. one in a million.
