Watch Guns N' Roses' Long-Lost "It's So Easy" Video Deemed Too Racy for MTV

Raunchy live clip unearthed for massive 'Appetite for Destruction' reissue box set

Guns N' Roses' massive, 30th-anniversary reissue of 1987's iconic debut Appetite for Destruction hits shelves one month from today, May 29th. In anticipation, the band has given its long-lost music video for "It's So Easy" a widespread release following its Apple Music debut last week. Filmed live at Guns N' Roses 1989 concert at the Cathouse in Los Angeles, the extremely racy clip combines performance footage with copious scenes of frontman Axl Rose getting frisky with the ladies, including some S&M action. After MTV deemed the sex scenes too controversial to air, the band had no choice but to throw their "It's So Easy" visual into the vaults, where it sat, forgotten, for years; it was subsequently unearthed, reassembled and restored in 4K video for the upcoming box set.

"It's So Easy" is but one of several HD music videos included on GN'R's Appetite for Destruction reissue (titled Appetite for Destruction: Locked N' Loaded), which also features remastered clips for "Welcome to the Jungle," "Paradise City," "Patience" and "Sweet Child O' Mine," among other classic tracks. Other highlights from the remastered package include 25 unreleased demos, two early takes on "November Rain," two unfinished songs ("The Plague" and "New Work Tune"), covers of Elvis Presley, Aerosmith, AC/DC and the Rolling Stones, and much more.
