The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut, “Appetite for Destruction” – the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II” occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release.
