  • Producers: Mike Clink, Guns N' Roses, Duff McKagan, Jim Mitchell.
  • THE SPAGHETTI INCIDENT? is part of the Geffen Goldline Series.
  • The last official studio recording of the 1990s for Guns N' Roses was 1993's THE SPAGHETTI INCIDENT?. This collection of mostly punk covers was released at a time when G N' R was reeling from both internal dissension (founding member Izzy Stradlin left after the release of USE YOUR ILLUSION I & II) and the great grunge explosion of 1991 that made the band seem passe. Rather than jumping on any bandwagons, the California quintet instead paid homage to heroes overlooked by kids caught up in buying the right kind of flannel.
  • Leading the charge was bassist Duff McKagan (who'd played with almost 30 Seattle bands including the Fartz and Fastbacks), G N' R recorded scorching covers of songs by Fear ("I Don't Care About You"), the New York Dolls ("Human Being"), and the Damned ("New Rose"). New guitarist Gilby Clarke provided a solid foil for Slash as Axl Rose crooned doo-wop (The Skyliner's "Since I Don't Have You") and sang with a faux British accent (UK Subs' "Down on the Farm"). Being Guns N' Roses meant controversy was never far behind and this time around the boys were criticized for including a hidden cover of Charles Manson's "Look at Your Game Girl."

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/9/93, p.65) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...In THE SPAGHETTI INCIDENT?, an album of mostly punky cover versions of drunk-rock classics, Guns N' Roses reassert their roots in hard-edged rock & roll-- some punk rock, some not..."

Spin (1/27/94, p.67) - "...demonstrates GNR's conviction that early -'70s metal and its sworn enemy, punk rock, were essentially the same beast, connected through glam and testosterone...."

Entertainment Weekly (11/26/93, pp.62-63) - "...THE SPAGHETTI INCIDENT? scales everything back a notch....Guns 'N' Roses aims to prove it doesn't need two padded CDs, a horn section and a bevy of backup singers to make a joyful racket..." - Rating: A-

Q (2/94, p.92) - 3 Stars - Good - "...relatively faithful cover versions...."

Musician (1/94, p.87) - "...[THE SPAGHETTI INCIDENT?] is a good album for ambivalent G'N'R fans....kudos then for being faithful to the spirit of the originals..."

NME (Magazine) (11/27/93, p.31) - (7) - Very Good - "...a bizarre mixture of swagger, nihilism and bad attitood which is as funny as it is exhilarating..."

All covers and all have been done extremely well, this CD is well worth it for this low price. Guns show their diversity as they make punk rock tracks their own. Duff McKagan shows off his vocal skills and i am a big fan of Duff's vocal talents especially on the track 'You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory '. My favourite songs off this Guns N Roses gem are 'Ain't It Fun','Since I Don't Have You', 'Buick Makane / Big Dumb Sex ' and 'Down on the Farm'. You can't go wrong with this price.

Another great guns and roses album. Even though the cover isnt to appealing unless your are into spaghetti, the songs are and every one is ausum. There is even a hidden track at the end of the last song called 'look at you game girl'. Very nice album and worth the time and money. One of my favouite is new rose with it's fast paced heavey beat or black leather with it's slow low voice. Great album

If you're a hard-core fan of GN'R, then I recommend this album - it goes off the beaten GN'R track to explore punk covers, which they do quite well considering they are definitely not a punk band. Duff McKagan features prominently on here; his voice suits the genre well, and it is quite interesting to note the way he has almost taken charge on this album. Just to see the variety of challenges this band has met and overcome in their recording history shows that we are looking at one of the greatest bands of all time.

the spaghetti incident is probably one of guns n roses lesser known or lesser appreciated albums as it doesn't have many of their radio hits on there. the most popular song on here is probably since i don't have you which appears on their greatest hits album. overall, this is a good rock album and if you're a fan then get this!
Michelle on
Really great CD. Created a lot of controversy with the Charles Manson song included as a hidden track. Apparently the band were unaware it was included until the release. Axl was supposedly solely responsible. Look at Your Game is actually one of the best songs on here (the Manson song). You wouldn't think such good lyrics could come from such a depraved mind.
