G N'' R LIES, is the second album by the band Guns N'' Roses, released in 1988. According to the RIAA, it has sold over five million copies only in the United States.
Background and recording:
The first four tracks consist of the previously released EP LIVE ?!*@ LIKE A SUICIDE. The last four songs were recorded with acoustic guitars. They were written and recorded in only a few studio sessions (with the exception of "You''re Crazy," which appeared in an alternate version on APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION), which producer Mike Clink called "one of those magical rock and roll history moments." In later interviews, Axl Rose stated that while he loved how the band sounded on the last four songs, he hated the sound of his voice. Rose recalled that his voice was husky and scratchy from the band''s lengthy touring at the time, and if he could he would have re-recorded his vocal tracks in a separate session. "You''re Crazy" had been released previously on the band''s debut album, APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION and was now recorded as originally intended. "Mama Kin" is an Aerosmith song, which originally appeared on the band''s 1973 debut album. "Mama Kin" made Guns N'' Roses the heir apparent to Aerosmith, the original bad boys of rock. "Nice Boys" is a Rose Tattoo cover from their 1980 album ROSE TATTOO. "Used to Love Her" was written as a joke after Izzy Stradlin'' disliked a song he heard on the radio featuring "some guy whining about a broad who was treating him bad". Slash stated that "People think it''s about one of our old girlfriends, but it''s actually about Axl''s dog." "Patience" was written by Stradlin.
