    Back before cell phones existed, see through landlines with a neon light was the hotness, and Guns N' Roses seemed unstoppable. "Patience," recorded in 1989, is arguably the best GNR power ballad of all time, musically engineered using only three acoustic guitars and Axl Rose's whistle and vocals. Music magic at its best.

    Guns N' Roses had an undeniable DGAF attitude at their career peak and this video perfectly incapsulates their effortless cool and confidence. Vintage recording equipment, Axl's hips, Slash with a boa constrictor, no product placement, no truly defined storyline, only the band members being the constant through the 6:05 video...it's mint as fuck for anyone who was alive when the video came out, or who are discovering it for the first time.
