Guns N’ Roses Remove Track With Racist, Homophobic Language From Upcoming Album Re-Release



Guns N’ Roses are reissuing their album Appetite for Destruction (1988) next month, minus one of its most controversial songs.
They are removing the song “One in a Million”, which has been criticized for its racist and homophobic language.

[Lyrics]
“Police and niggers, that’s right / Get outta my way / Don’t need to buy none of your / Gold chains today.”
“Immigrants and faggots / They make no sense to me /  They come to our country / And think they’ll do as they please / Like start some mini-Iran / Or spread some fucking disease”
