I agree whole heartedly. Serioulsy what opening song has stood the test of time more? Jungle is what Guns are all about basically. It's as fresh today as it was in 1987. Many of the songs mentioned are great but "best opening song to a debut album" Easily it's Welcome to the Jungle.

Thank you. That album is still so jarring, so hard core, so unapologetic and I love it!!! But "Welcome to the Jungle," the low, growling guitar followed by Axl's yowl, that's one hell of a way to introduce yourself to the world. Without a doubt people will still be blown away by "Appetite" in 20 years, and probably more.

That's what the topic of this thread is. "best opening song from a debut album"

Can any of you guys tell me how to send PM's? I figured you just had to click on the user's name and that would work. guess not.
