Released in 1987 off of the band's debut album Appetite for Destruction, the song reached the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100. 

The lyrics, written by front-man Axl Rose, were inspired by his then-girlfriend, Erin Everly. In 2016, Spin listed "Sweet Child O' Mine" as the fifth best Guns N' Roses track out of the band's entire discography, noting the song's "enduring emotional resonance."
