Guns N' Roses' 'Appetite for Destruction' Is Back in the Top 10

Guns N' Roses' groundbreaking debut album, Appetite for Destruction, is back in the Top 10 just weeks before the 25th anniversary of the its release. 

The album shot up the Billboard Hot 200 charts again after the release of the band's special edition Locked N' Loaded box set on June 29.

Between the release day and July 5, the band sold 33,000 album equivalent units — good enough for number 10 on the Billboard charts.

The band's massive reissue of Appetite for Destruction includes 49 previously unreleased songs from that era. The box set arrives June 29. 

Guns N' Roses has been enjoying a Renaissance as one of the biggest touring acts in music since frontman Axl Rose reunited with Appetite for Destruction-era guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan in 2016. 

The band is continuing its Not in This Lifetime tour this summer in Europe. Get the tour dates here
