TVD's Daily Wax | Guns n' Roses "Appetite For Destruction"

After a long time out in the woods, I guess it was the Goth girls who let me know it was OK to dig Rock again. I mean, in their dorm rooms in college, there'd be posters of The Cult alongside posters of Led Zeppelin, The Cure right next to Black Sabbath. And it was another Goth girl who turned me onto G n' R. Somehow she had gotten her hands on some early, uncompromising Guns demos and played them over the in-store speakers at the Record World in Georgetown Park Mall where we worked together. Sure, it was LA metal, but it KILLED.

They used to say it was the teeny-bopper high school girls who had their finger on pulse of the next big thing to come around the corner. But me? I think it's really the Goth girls.
