Guns N' Roses versionEdit
This song was covered by the rock band Guns N' Roses on their album, The Spaghetti Incident? This was Guns N' Roses 18th single release overall, and the third single lifted from The Spaghetti Incident?. The single was released in mid-1994. It reached #69 on the Hot 100 and was a top 10 hit in the UK. The music video featured actor Gary Oldman – then a popular casting choice for Hollywood villains – as a smiling demon who is constantly mocking singer Axl Rose. The video was the last to feature original members Duff McKagan and Slash, as well as drummer Matt Sorum and rhythm guitarist Gilby Clarke. It is also (to date) the last music video released under the "Guns N' Roses" name.
