"The mighty Appetite for Destruction was released by Geffen Records on July 21, 1987, and ... pretty much ... nothing happened. Except for some minimal airplay in southern California, radio ignored the record. MTV didn’t spin the video of the first single into heavy rotation because there was no video to rotate. There were no ringtones to download because there were hardly any cell phones, and no such thing as ringtones. Rolling Stone didn’t care. The editors, in New York, thought Guns was just more lame-ass poison from L.A., and besides, they already hated Poison, who were in heavy rotation on MTV.", from "Watch You Bleed: The Saga Of Guns N' Roses" by Stephen Davis.
It's not about how you start, but how you win!

Regardless the hard begining and not being very well accepted by the industry, people would soon to witness the birth of one of the biggest and best bands to ever exist! And still considered to these days the best debut rock album of all time! ♥
