Guns N' Roses -- "November Rain"
I mean, yeah, I hate Guns N' Roses and Axl Rose. I was busy listening to my sister's R.E.M. tapes when they first blew up, and then I proudly took the other side during the great Nirvana vs. GN'R war of the early 90s. In the time since, I haven't, like so many other people, doubled back and chalked it up as the folly of youth: Axl Rose is a dickbag--a truly hateful misogynist, homophobe and enemy of all that is smart and progressive and freeing, and I take immense pleasure in seeing the (even bigger) joke he's become. But jeez, you guys, I certainly ain't gonna deny motherfucking "Novermber Rain," you know? Shit.
