In this rare clip from 1987, the young Guns N' Roses are interviewed on MTV — who initially misidentify the group as "Guns & Roses." Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff, and Steven are asked about their banned album artwork, earning the dislike of other bands and the challenges of getting the "Welcome to the Jungle" music video on TV. But the highlight comes at the end of the clip when the admirably mulleted host offers the group 30 seconds to "redecorate this room." Needless to say, the bandmates truly prove their appetite for destruction.
