“It’s So Easy” is a song by Duff McKagan and West Arkeen and made popular by the American band Guns N’ Roses, featured on its 1987 debut studio album Appetite for Destruction. The song was published as the band’s first single on June 15, 1987, in Great Britain and it reached number eighty-four on the UK Singles Chart. The songs ”Shadow of Your Love” and ”Move to the City”, featured on the 12-inch vinyl and 12-inch picture disc editions of the single, were written by members of Guns N’ Roses while in previous band Hollywood Rose, and were later included on the extended play live from the jungle.

According to an interview published in Hit Parader in March 1988, “It’s So Easy” is “an account of a time Duff McKagan and West Arkeen, and also the rest of the band, were kinda going through. They didn’t have money, but they had a lot of hangers on and girls could basically live off of … things were just too easy. There’s an emptiness; it’s so easy.”

There was an original music video made for “It’s So Easy”, which was their first video ever made; the video features the band playing live in front of a crowd on stage, but later a promo video was made with the original video heavily edited but still showing shots of the band on stage but also showing girls in bikinis and much more. It was not included on the band’s Welcome to the Videos DVD because its content is rare and can only be found on the internet. At the time the video was released it was not extremely popular, it was not released in the states, but once Welcome to the Jungle was released the “It’s So Easy” video became more popular, but even today its content is very rare and almost impossible to find on the internet.
