One in a Million Removed From Upcoming Guns N’ Roses Box Set
This week, Guns N’ Roses made a big announcement: they would be reissuing their most famous album, 1987’s Appetite For Destruction.
The album, which included Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City and Sweet Child O’ Mine, would reappear as a five-CD, seven- LP extravaganza, comprising not just the original record but a follow-up EP, G N’ R Lies, and a whole bunch of extra recordings.
But there was one song among that collection that would not be making the cut this time around: One In A Million.
That might have had something to do with the lyrics.
The song was controversial at the time. Rose defended himself in a 1989 interview with Rolling Stone, saying: “I don’t like being told what I can and what I can’t say.”
But the fact that the reissue is appearing without One In A Million still raises questions about how to judge a piece of culture in the decades after it was made.
What’s going on here?
Bands, particularly big Baby Boomer and Gen X acts, re-release classics like this from time to time — it’s a way of milking some extra cash out of the back catalogue.
This re-release comes with buttons, stickers, flyers, posters, patches and photographs, and all up will set fans back nearly $1,000.
