"It's So Easy" was the debut single by American rock band Guns N' Roses, and was the first single from their 1987 debut album Appetite for Destruction. The song was written by bassist Duff McKagan and songwriter West Arkeen as an account of what they and the rest of the band were going to at the time,[1] and was originally envisioned as an acoustic "Hippie Ya-Ya" song, before later being turned into a more traditional rock song by guitarist Slash.[2] The single was released on June 15th, 1987, and garnered little success, peaking at #84 on the UK Singles chart and failing to chart anywhere else. The song was vastly overshadowed by the follow-up single "Welcome to the Jungle," and lives on today largely as a live staple at concerts by the band.

Music Video[edit | edit source]

In late 1989, over two years after the original single had been released, a promotional music video was produced for the song that consisted of edited footage of a performance from the band at the Cathouse nightclub in Hollywood, with audio from the studio version placed over it.

The music video was rejected by MTV due to the sexual content portrayed within,[3] and it remained unreleased for many years, not even being released on the bands music video compilation DVD Welcome to the Videos.

On December 31st, 2016, YouTube user Daniel Sánchez uploaded a rough cut version of the video to his channel. Seventeen months later on May 21st, 2018, a slightly different version of the video was officially released on to Apple Music to promote the Locked N’ Loaded reissue of Appetite for Destruction ,[4] before later being uploaded to the official Guns N' Roses YouTube channel on the 27th.
