Axl's terribly offensive lyrics on "One in a Million" ruined this album for me. From all accounts he fought tooth and nail to get it on the album but saner heads should have prevailed. They ought not to have catered to someone who was clearly mentally disturbed and possibly mentally ill.

It wasn't meant to be taken seriously. I always thought the lyrics were a hyperbole.

From what I've read, Axl was xenophobic, homophobic and racist, so I think his lyrics were a true reflection of his feelings.

Like Ace Frawley said... Axl is-was a xenophobic, homophobic racist. So yeah the lyrics were serious.

And then in the 3rd verse he calls other people intolerant, so clearly he can't be taken seriously. Like those people on the radio and newspapers (Andrew Bolt, for example).

The real mystery regarding the lyrics of "One in a Million" is what the chorus has to do with the rest of the song.

It's funny how people listen to bands with lyrical themes such as death, rape and suicide and then when there's a sentence like "I don't like people belonging to this particular set of people", it suddenly is "offensive"

Too true!

A lot of G N R lyrics were bizarre at best.





GnR has best lyrics in Hard rock category IMO
