Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Appetite for Destruction’ Returns To Top 10 On Billboard 200 Chart After Deluxe Reissue

Guns N’ Roses’ classic 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction, returns to the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart after more than 29 years. The former No. 1 re-enters at No. 10, following its deluxe remastered reissue on June 29.  For tracking and charting purposes, all versions of Appetite for Destruction are combined;  the album was reissued in a variety of formats: the standard 12-track remastered album, a new deluxe edition with 18 bonus tracks, a double vinyl LP set, a 73-track super deluxe set, and a limited edition Locked N’ Loaded box set with four CDs, a blu-ray disc, seven vinyl LPs and seven 7” vinyl singles. Additionally, one of the set’s new bonus tunes — a previously unreleased version of the track “Shadow of Your Love” — has peaked at No. 5 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart. Appetite for Destruction debuted on the Billboard 200 dated Aug. 29, 1987 at No. 182 and eventually reached No. 1 nearly a year later, on the Aug. 6, 1988-dated list. The set spent five nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 and finished 1988 as the No. 6 biggest album on the Billboard 200.
