Guns N' Roses. Tales Of Destruction. Slash describes the development of the music of "Welcome to the Jungle" in his self-titled autobiography.
As the band was trying to write new material, Axl remembered a riff Slash had played while he was living in the basement of Slash's mother's house. He played it and the band quickly laid down the foundations for the song, as Slash continued coming up with new guitar parts for it. He credits Duff McKagan as coming up with the breakdown.
Duff contradicts this in his autobiography, It's So Easy and other Lies , saying it was from a song called "The Fake" that he wrote in for the Vains, a punk band he was in. Rose claimed inspiration for the lyrics came from an encounter he and a friend had with a homeless man while they were coming out of a bus into New York. You're in the jungle baby; you're gonna die! Martin Popoff included the song at number nineteen in his book The Top Heavy Metal Songs of All Time ;  it was ranked the second "greatest metal song" by VH1 ;  it appeared at on Rolling Stone ' " Greatest Songs of All Time " list,  it appeared as number seven hundred and sixty-four on Q 's " Best Songs Ever" chart;  and the song was named the "greatest song about Los Angeles" in a poll in Blender.
Geffen Records was having a hard time selling the video to MTV. David Geffen made a deal with the network, and the video was aired only one time around AM on a Sunday morning.
In spite of the early morning airtime, the song's music video caught viewers' attention and quickly became MTV's most requested video. The video in question directed by Nigel Dick begins with a shot of Axl Rose disembarking a bus in Los Angeles and a drug dealer portrayed by Izzy is seen trying to sell his merchandise while Rose rejects it. As Rose stops to watch a television through a store window, clips of the band playing live can be seen and Slash can also be seen briefly, sitting against the store's wall and drinking from a clear glass bottle in a brown paper bag.
By the end of the video Rose has transformed into a city punk, wearing the appropriate clothing, after going through a process similar to the Ludovico technique.
