«Rocket Queen» is the last song on Appetite for Destruction, the debut album from hard rock band Guns N’ Roses.
I wrote this song for this girl who was gonna have a band and she was gonna call it Rocket Queen. She kinda kept me alive for a while. The last part of the song is my message to this person, or anybody else who can get something out of it. It’s like there’s hope and a friendship note at the end of the song. For that song there was also something I tried to work out with various people—a recorded sex act. It was somewhat spontaneous but premeditated; something I wanted to put on the record.
—Axl Rose An Interview With The Gunners, Hit Parader — March 1988
A credit in the booklet for Appetite for Destruction reads «Barbi (Rocket Queen) Von Grief», implying that she was «this girl» Rose mentions in the quote. Slash states that he and Duff McKagan wrote the main riff to «Rocket Queen» when they first got together, before either of them had joined Hollywood Rose or L.A. Guns.
It has also been said that Rose brought a woman, Adriana Smith, to the studio for recording. Steve Thompson, an engineer on the album, said the following in an interview:
Axl wanted some pornographic sounds on Rocket Queen, so he brought a girl in and they had sex in the studio. We wound up recording about 30 minutes of sex noises. If you listen to the break on Rocket Queen it’s in there.
It was later stated in the music magazine Classic Rock, as well as Rolling Stone, that the person who had been recorded performing sex noises on the song was Adriana Smith, an on-off girlfriend of drummer Steven Adler, who also allegedly had an intimate relationship with frontman Rose.
Slash states that though Von Grief was only eighteen at the time, she had a notorious reputation and was «a queen of the underground scene back then. She’d eventually become a madam, but Axl was infatuated with her at the time.» She was also mentioned in the acknowledgments section on L.A. Guns self-titled album.
At a handful of shows during Guns N’ Roses 1991-1993 Use Your Illusion Tour, Axl Rose would sometimes sing a small part of a song called It Tastes Good, Don’t It? in the middle of the song. It Tastes Good, Don’t It? had been written by the band in 1988, as they hoped its explicit lyrics would get them thrown off a tour with Iron Maiden. A performance of this song can be seen on the second half of the band’s Live In Tokyo DVD.

  2. Lyrics:

    If I say I don't need anyone
    I can say these things to you
    'Cause I can turn on anyone
    Just like I've turned on you
    I've got a tongue like a razor
    A sweet switchblade knife
    And I can do you favors
    But then you'll do whatever I like
    Here I am
    And you're a Rocket Queen
    I might be a little young
    But honey I ain't naive

  6. This is a great ending to a great album. At the end of hard riffs, sex, violence and everything dirty about rock they squeeze in at the last minute that they're still softies and they still love you.
