A hard-hitting rock anthem that transports listeners to a world of unapologetic rebellion, capturing the essence of living life on the edge.

“Paradise City” is a song by American hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. It was released in 1987, as the second single from their debut album, Appetite for Destruction. The song is a fast-paced, anthemic rock song with a catchy melody and lyrics about rock ‘n’ roll and escapism.

The song’s lyrics are about a speaker who is tired of their current situation and wants to escape to a better place. They sing about how they want to “go to Paradise City” and “leave this world behind”. They also sing about how they are “a rock ‘n’ roll star” and that they deserve to be treated like one.

The song’s message is one of escapism and rock ‘n’ roll excess. It is a reminder that we can all escape our problems if we believe in ourselves. The song also celebrates the hedonistic lifestyle of rock stars and the idea that anything is possible if you have enough money and drugs.
