The Song Guns N' Roses Has Played Live the Most

At least 920 times and counting

February 12, 2020

Guns N’ Roses went through a lengthy period of uncertainty between the release of 1993’s The Spaghetti Incident and the start of their Not in This Lifetime tour in 2016. Even though frontman Axl Rose (and keyboardist Dizzy Reed) carried on the GNR name on tour and on 2008’s Chinese Democracy, there was always the question of when and if Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven/Matt would return.

“No” finally changed to “yes,” at least for Slash and Duff, and the current incarnation of the band is having so much fun that it can’t stay off the road. There’s a new lingering Guns N’ Roses question about whether they’ll ever release another studio album, but in the meantime the band just announced the Larger Than Life global stadium tour.

GNR can usually be counted on to play a big bulk of Appetite for Destruction in concert, as well as several cuts from the Use Your Illusion LPs and a selection of covers. Here’s a look at the songs Guns N’ Roses has played live the most, according to, since they started rocking the small clubs of LA back in the ‘80s.
