Thing is though, in the case of G 'n' R, the attitude was a part of the music.

Yes, I liked the way they came out of Appetite for Destruction, then a later with Lies,Lies,Lies (acoustic).
They made an attempt at adding orchestrated opera to their music toward the end, they did try to be versatile anyway, I just personally found Axels voice irritating after awhile, the band was awsome.

Default attitude

Wasnt it like G&R was one of the first bands stepping away from the glam, long hair, & makeup bands of the 80s, they were cooler..as to say, with a new and different attitude.
They did change the trend of things concerning rock music in the day,
Rock & Roll cowboys wearing bandanas, leather, cowboy hats, snakeskin boots, more casual dress, motorcycles.
At the time, you were more hip if you rode with G&R, and their style of rock was.. different.

Some may some overrated and alright, maybe there is an argument to be had here. The UYI albums werent terrible by any means and have their good moments but i would probably consider them somewhat of a let down as a follow up to their debut but what exactly are you comparing them to when you claim they are overrated, if that is your stance?

Appetite is tight and a fine example of their genre. UYI may not have set the world alight but there is enough quality there to mean they didnt completely destroy what they had accomplished previously.

I may not have gotten into quite as much music if it wasnt for GnR. A definite yes.

Absolutely, and without hesitation, not.

I'm saying no. I don't believe they have the musical integrity to be in the hall of fame.

I have to say no. I like Appetite For Destruction, but not on a hall of fame level.
