‘Get in the Ring’ – 25 Most Destructive Guns N’ Roses Moments
On the Guns N’ Roses album ‘Use Your Illusion II,’ the band released the track ‘Get in the Ring.’ The track’s lyrical content took shots at various critics who had given GN’R negative reviews due to their topsy-turvy stage performances.
Amongst the critics mentioned by name was Spin writer Bob Guccione, Jr. The lyrics of ‘Get in the Ring’ refer to the journalist’s father, who is the founder of Penthouse magazine, and how he “gets more p–sy” than his son. Guccione, Jr. accepted Axl Rose‘s challenge to ‘get in the ring,’ but just like the Rose vs. Neil debacle, the fight never happened.
