The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of its 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction – the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release.
