'Appetite for Destruction' Returns to Top 10 on Billboard 200 Chart After Deluxe Reissue

Recommended Posts

Hello members of the best GNR forum... have an exceptional week.

The former No. 1 album is back in the top 10 after more than 29 years.

Guns N’ Roses’ classic 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction, returns to the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart after more than 29 years. The former No. 1 re-enters the tally (dated July 14) at No. 10, following its deluxe remastered reissue on June 29.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). As of this week, each unit equals one traditional album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from one album (a TEA unit), or 1,250 paid subscription on-demand audio song streams from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported on-demand audio song streams from an album (an SEA unit). (The weighting of an SEA unit was updated with the July 14-dated charts.)

The new July 14-dated chart -- where Appetite jumps back on at No. 10 -- will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Tuesday, July 10.

 

For tracking and charting purposes, all versions of Appetite for Destruction are combined, and in the week ending July 5, the album earned 33,000 units (up 1,541 percent).

The album was reissued in a variety of formats: the standard 12-track remastered album, a new deluxe edition with 18 bonus tracks, a double vinyl LP set, a 73-track super deluxe set and a lavish limited edition Locked N’ Loaded box set with four CDs, a blu-ray disc, seven vinyl LPs and seven 7” vinyl singles (among other goodies).

One of the set’s new bonus tunes, a previously unreleased version of the archival track “Shadow of Your Love,” was promoted to radio stations and has peaked at No. 5 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart.

Appetite for Destruction debuted on the Billboard 200 dated Aug. 29, 1987 at No. 182 and eventually reached No. 1 nearly a year later, on the Aug. 6, 1988-dated list. The set spent five nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 and finished 1988 as the No. 6 biggest album on the Billboard 200.

Appetite for Destruction was last in the top 10 a little more than 29 years ago, when it placed at No. 8 on the April 15, 1989-dated tally.

I wonder why Axl doesn't release new music or doesn't give a fuck about his live performances. 🤔

Not bad for a 3 decade old b-side. I was always a fan of this song, even when most of the people gave the song shit ofr various reasons

If you told me I could work my ass off and pour my soul into art, and take a chance at everyone hating it, to be paid, "okay" for it...

Or...

Draw a stick figure 24 times a day and get millions...

Hmmm.....

1 BILLION. This is the number that the North American band reached this week on Youtube with the music video of November Rain, becoming, thus, the first related video to rock to reach such mark. November Rain is a song often cited with one of the best of hard rock and, also, his solo is always highlighted among the best of all time.
