Guns N' Roses- Paradise City



  • Duffs can be seen wearing an Aerosmith "wings logo" t-shirt in the video- showing their honour and respect, he is an inspiration


  • AXL Rose is seen sporting a World War II Nazi officer cap and a stage pass which appears to bear the SS eagle, Axl opens the pass, shows off the SS eagle, closes it and gives a meaningful look to the camera 


  • The other concert, was in the England, called the Monsters of Rock event at Donington Park, the reason for this is because some deaths took place while Guns N' Roses were performing, as a result, they thought the footage taken at the concert would be good footage and shows a sign of respect to those who died
  • Midway through the video you see them boarding the Concorde jet so they could make an appearance in England, and return as quickly as possible to continue to tour with one of their biggest influences 



  • A close up of a Guns N' Roses t-shirt and merchandise showing their popularity and fame
  • Far away shot of stage showing the size of the concert
  •  Medium shots of the band
  • As the lyrics start the video changes from black and white to colour
  • Close up of the lead singer- importance
  • Close up of musical instruments, showing talent and ability
  • Far away shot of the audience, shows the massive fan base, and there energy and enjoyment
  • Far away shots of the band, showing how they perform in concert
  • Shots of audience, hands waving in the hair, showing fun, adrenaline, energy, and the massive crowd- everyone wants to be at the concert
  • Cuts to black and white images of the band members in other scenarios
  • Two shots with the lead singer in showing they are the main focus
  • Inter cuts to other shots, such as the band practising and signing autographs showing their fame


  • A shot of the guitarist alone in the middle of the stadium showing the size of the concert
  • The backs of a Guns N' Roses jacket, again merchandise
  • The audience are holding up posters and banners, showing there idolisation for the band
  • Images of the crowd filling in the stadium, connoting they have a wide fan base
  • A close up of a girl clapping her hands on someone's shoulders, enjoying herself
  • Lots of jumping and head banging connoting energy and fun
  • Fast paced shots between images of the instruments and band members again connoting energy, gives a "buzz" to the music
  • Typical clothing and image that you would expect to see- long hair, studs, sunglasses, tattoos, leather


  • The crowd going "mental" and security having to take control draws in the target audience of male teens
  • Posters saying "AXL" showing his fame and people look up to him
  • Images of New York in the background of the inter cuts- connoting this is paradise
  • Shots of the audience and the band together- their idol, he is iconic- whip shots
  • Not a live track- as there are a mixture of shots between two concerts 


  • Crowd trying to get on stage again showing the band are iconic but the enjoyment and "madness" of the concert
  • Everyday life of band inter cuts, such as them using the toilet, finding it hard to get out of bed- the audience can relate to them, they are not seen as superior to them
  • Inter cuts of shots of police, connoting violence, what you would expect to see in a heavy metal music video- controlling the concert at Donnington Park Concert
