Paradise City was Guns 'N' Roses fourth and final single release from their debut album Appetite For Destruction. Released in the UK during March 1989 - the follow-up to Sweet Child O' Mine
- the song peaked at #6 in the singles chart. In the US the song
reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Paradise City was the only
song on the Appetite For Destruction album to feature a
synthesizer. According to Slash, the song was penned in the back of a
rental van while the band were on the way back from a gig in San
Francisco with the band Rock N' Riders.
Formed in LA, California in 1985, the rock band released six singles during the 80's - between 1987 and 1989 - and have so far released 22 singles and six studio albums.
