We're All Gonna Die

Songfacts®:

  • This track is a collaboration with punk rock innovator Iggy Pop. Slash told Musicradar.com: "Iggy was the first guy to come in the studio and put a vocal down. When I sent him the song he called me up a couple of days later and over the phone, on my answering machine he left him singing the words while the demo I sent him was playing off the stereo in the background. It was so rock 'n' roll, it was really, really cool. I flew him in from Miami and he came in and put that down. It was just great, he sort of set the tone for the whole record."
