About this album

“The Spaghetti Incident?” is the fifth album by hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. The album is unique for the band, consisting entirely of cover versions, mostly of punk and glam rock songs of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Many of the tracks were recorded with original Guns N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin during the Use Your Illusion I and II sessions and then were later re-recorded by Gilby Clarke. Those tracks were previously intended to be included in a combined Use Your Illusion album, consisting of three (or possibly even four) discs, instead of the two separate discs they ended up being.

In 1992, the band prepared to release the leftover cover tracks as an EP, with then-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke replacing Stradlin’s guitar tracks. They later decided on making the album a full release and recorded several more tracks for it.

Then-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan sings on many of the album’s tracks and Hanoi Rocks frontman (and Axl Rose’s idol) Michael Monroe appears on “Ain’t It Fun” as a guest vocalist.

This was the last Guns N’ Roses album to feature lead guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum as well as the only album to feature Gilby Clarke.

“The Spaghetti Incident?” debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, selling about 190,000 albums in its first week of release, significantly less than their previous releases.

Album title
The title is an inside-joke referring to a food fight between Axl Rose and Steven Adler involving spaghetti.

    During a discussion between Rose, Slash and the album’s cover designer in the “Making of Estranged” video, it is made clear that the correct form of the title is within quotation marks and with a question mark. ( "The Spaghetti Incident?" )

    I don't understand why do most people hate this album, I think it's fairly decent. It definitely doesn't deserve the hate it gets.

    I like the cover art. It's really their second worst (Chinese Democrazy says Hello), but i really like too much the covers. Attitude, Raw Power, Ain't Fun, Since I Don't Have You, I Don't Care About You (and it's hidden music), You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory and finally Human Being are so cool songs.

    Never understood the hate for this one. I think the critics were just getting tired of GNR and took it out on them with the reviews. There are several GNR classics on here and yeah, it's just a fun album. If you like GNR, there's absolutely no reason for you to dislike this album.

    Not their best album, obviously. But definitely underrated.

    The Spaghetti Incedent? is a great album, one of my fav. GNR. I also really like the cover of Look At Game, Girl. Charles Mansons not a bad musician, but GNR played it better, I think. Its not listed on this track listing though, but it was on the cassette.
