"Sweet Child O' Mine" is the ninth track on Guns N' Roses' 1987 album Appetite for Destruction. It was released as the third single from the album on 15 January 1988, and hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, the only Guns N' Roses song to ever do so. It is arguably the band's most popular song, with the riff being featured at the top of many "best riffs" lists in magazines and the like.

Big Daddy

A new version of the song was included in the movie Big Daddy which was released in 1999. This version is edited to a 4:42 running time. The first half of the song is taken from a live version of the song with re-recorded vocals by Axl. At around the 3 minute mark, during the solo, the recording fuses into a studio version of the song with the 1999 lineup of the band.
