G N' R not hitting my list was a bit of a surprise for me. I used to love it, but haven't really dipped back into it for a long time. Zeppelin as well - I got into them through the Remasters compilation, so they've always been a Greatest Hits band to me.
Yeah, Appetite for Destruction was my favorite album when I was 16-17. I had a cassette tape that I kept flipping from side to side, listening to it on repeat when I was a depressed exchange student. I even wrote an article on the school newspaper professing my love for it.
On a social setting I can probably still vibe to it but in my own head space it just makes me feel icky. Maybe that’ll change someday. It’s definitely a top-50-worthy album.
On related personal head space news, I think I have a new #1 record for the first time in 15 years or so.
