Guns N' Roses Paradise City

On Monday October 29, 2012, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas and Clark County renamed a street in honor of Guns N’ Roses.  The Joint, Paradise Road is now known as Paradise City Road.

Guns N' Roses  - Paradise City

My favorite motherfuckin' song.  The summer song of my teenage years.  Where we gets excited by smoking cigarettes and getting drunk as often as we can.  It was the good ol' carefree years.  It was Paradise City.

Guns N' Roses Paradise city lyrics



Guns N' Roses  Paradise City (lyrics)

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Just an urchin living under the street
I'm a hard case that's tough to beat
I'm your charity case
So buy me something to eat
I'll pay you at another time
Take it to the end of the line

Rags to riches or so they say
You got to - keep pushing for the fortune and fame you know
It's all a gamble when it's just a game
You treat it like a capital crime
Everybody's doing their time

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home

Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
Why I'm here I can't quite remember
The surgeon general says it's hazardous to breathe
I'd have another cigarette but I can't see
Tell me who you're going to believe

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

So far away (4x)

Captain America's been torn apart
Now he's a court jester with a broken heart
He said -
Turn me around and take me back to the start
I must be losing my mind -
"Are you blind?!"
I've seen it all a million times

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down
Beat me down
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Boy, I'm going to be mean
Oh, oh take me home

Take me down
To the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me home
Yeah, baby
Yeah






Did you know that this bunch of unknown scabs (including a Slash rip-off and an Izzy Stradlin look-alike) are supposed to be the new Guns N' Roses???

Guns N' Roses - Live at the Ritz - 1988 - Full concert


Guns N' Roses - Live at the Ritz - 1988 - Full concert


"The original fab five bad boys of rock n roll have their finest hour on February 2, 1988 at the Ritz in NYC. They perform their best songs off their classic album "Appetite for Destruction", and all five band members are on fire. The chemistry and panache are amazing."

I don't give a flying fuck about Matt Sorum and Gilby Clark they were GN'R employees. Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, and Steven are the real ones, the original ones, the only members that matter. period.

Guns N' Roses - Slash, Duff, Izzy & Steven = Chinese Democracy
Guns N'Roses - Axl Rose = Velvet Revolver
Verdict: both suck.

Setlist:

►It's so easy (at start)
►Mr Brownstone  03:33
►Outta get me  08:03
►Sweet Child Ô Mine  12:59
►My Michelle  19:37
►Welcome to the Jungle 23:54
►Night Train  30:00
►Paradise city  34:55
►Rocket queen  42:08
►Knocking on the heaven doors  49:11
