Stereo Socks - Anihilation Munchies. Guns and Roses inspired Socks supplied in a Stereo Pair (L and R)
The cross with skull versions of the band members, that we nowadays associate with the cover of the Guns N’ Roses was actually just the 3rd option because the first two were too controversial for the cover of "Appetite for Destruction".
The first suggestion was Slash’s. He wanted to use a picture of the 1986 space shuttle Challenger explosion.
Then Axl Rose came across a painting of cartoonist Robert Williams, where a scene of a robot rape is interrupted by an avenging metal angel. The painting was called “Appetite for destruction”, and even though wise management figured out that the graphic image would get the band more attention than they wanted, the name stuck.
Nowadays, the skulled cross works almost as an unofficial logo for the band.
