GN'R favorite-song face-off

Stuck in the '80s podcast hosts Steve Spears and Sean Daly spend great chunks of their day (1) eating Funyuns (2) downloading Samantha Fox pictures (3) arguing ferociously over the greatest Guns N' Roses songs. Hey, beats working! With today's release of the looong-anticipated GNR album Chinese Democracy, Axl and Co. are at it again. Commence bickering:

Steve's Top 5 GNR Songs

5 This I Love: A Chinese Democracy tune on the list? Yep, it's that good.

4 Paradise City: Best pounding drum opening ever.

3 November Rain: Never underestimate the brilliance of a GNR power ballad.

2 Live and Let Die: Paul McCartney, eat your heart out.

1 Sweet Child O' Mine: Swirling, seductive, simply surreal.

Sean's Top 5 GNR Songs:

5 Rocket Queen: Epic ending to an epic Appetite. Makes me cry metal tears.

4 Pretty Tied Up: "I know this chick she lives down on Melrose ..."

3 You Could Be Mine: Full- throttle rock bliss. Thanks, Slash.

2 Used to Love Her: Great, psychotic last-call sing-along.

1 Welcome to the Jungle: Because any other No. 1 on here would be a lie.
