Are you aware what debut single means? A song from 1998 is not applicable for Aerosmith for too many reasons to list.


Welcome to the Jungle wasn't their debut? I wonder what song was, I would've risked my nuts that it was.

hahahaha Oops, my bad. I didn't see "debut". I thought the OP was asking about the No. 1 single that hit the No. 1 spot the fastest.

Running Free by Iron Maiden is a great debut single.

But after some time to consider Holy Wars by Megadeth is my personal favorite debut single ever. Well at least according to wiki it was their first single.

Your nuts are saved, my friend.

"Guns N' Roses released their first EP in 1986, which led to a contract with Geffen; the following year, the band released their debut album, Appetite for Destruction. They started to build a following with their numerous live shows, but the album didn't start selling until almost a year later, when MTV started playing "Sweet Child O' Mine." Soon, both the album and single shot to number one, and Guns N' Roses became one of the biggest bands in the world. Their debut single, "Welcome to the Jungle," was re-released and shot into the Top Ten, and "Paradise City" followed in its footsteps. By the end of 1988, they released G N' R Lies, which paired four new, acoustic-based songs (including the Top Five hit "Patience") with their first EP. G N' R Lies' inflammatory closer, "One in a Million," sparked intense controversy, as Rose slipped into misogyny, bigotry, and pure violence; essentially, he somehow managed to distill every form of prejudice and hatred into one five-minute tune.

Not my favorite, but Smells Like Teen Spirit was a landscape changer.

That's not right. Sweet Child was their second single, not Paradise City.

And Dream On is Aerosmith's.

That's what the article says. It says GnR releases went like this:

Welcome to the Jungle
Sweet Child
Welcome to the Jungle (re-release)
Paradise City
