“You Ain’t the First” by Guns N’ Roses

Okay, now they throw us a curveball. After blasting us with “Perfect Crime,” “You Ain’t the First” calms things down with its acoustic chillness. Izzy’s on lead vocals here, and it’s just a cool, mellow tune with a cheeky sort of attitude toward love and relationships. It’s like a laid-back jam session amongst friends with some booze involved. It’s got this folk/country vibe that’s a bit of a departure from the typical GNR sound but in the context of the album, it’s a nice little breather before diving back into the heavy stuff.
