Duff McKagan, Slash and Axl Rose of Guns 'n' Roses perform in concert at the Ritz on Feb. 2, 1988 in New York City. 

Filmed live in 1989 at Hollywood’s notorious Cathouse rock club, Guns N’ Roses' “It’s So Easy” music video didn’t see the light of day until Monday (May 21), when it was finally released.

The video remained sealed in vaults for nearly three decades only to be uncovered as part of the digitally restored issue of Appetite for Destruction, the band’s debut studio album from 1987 that remains the best-selling U.S. debut album to date, with more than 30 million copies sold worldwide.

The “It’s So Easy” video can be watched exclusively on Apple Music in the “Guns N’ Roses Video Essentials” playlist on Apple Music Hard Rock. The pioneers of American hard rock are reissuing their earliest visuals to recapture their hand-banging classics.
