  • The third cut was a reworked version of "You're Crazy,' which was one of the weaker electric songs on Appetite for Destruction. Now slower and meaner, it is most recognized for the over-the-top vulgarity that dominates the song's conclusion. The closing profanity of "You're Crazy" segues into the six-minute "One In a Million." Lyrically, it was a politically incorrect train wreck—but but to make it even more dangerous, "One In a Million" was a brilliant example of songwriting. People who loved emotional musicianship noticed the song as much as the people who hated the lyrics.
