4. "Rocket Queen"
The 12 songs on Appetite for Destruction reveal many aspects of the underbelly of Los Angeles, from porn to booze to heroin. As a sort of cleanser, they decided to end the album on a more positive note. "I wrote this song for this girl who was gonna have a band and she was gonna call it Rocket Queen," Axl said in 1988. "She kinda kept me alive for a while. The last part of the song is my message to this person, or anybody else who can get something out of it." Still, this being Guns N' Roses, those orgasmic moans you hear near the end of the song are Steven Adler's girlfriend Adriana Smith having sex with the singer.
