Reckless Life is the opening track on the Guns N Roses EP Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide. It opens with Duff McKagan saying, "Hey fuckers, suck on Guns N' Fuckin' Roses!" This song was originally written by W. Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin's previous band Hollywood Rose.
Remington Steelers coverEdit
The Remington Steelers recorded a cover for their album In 3-D, and as a tribute to Guns N Roses, it was released as a single on December 16, 2007. On this track, Daniel Radcliffe yelled Duff's opening line--the only time in the history of the band where Daniel substituted for him (other than the fact that both of them play the bass; all other times, Emma recorded the vocals on songs previously sung by Duff and on one such occasion even played virtually all the instruments like Duff did for that track, though Stradlin did the lead vocals for the Remington Steelers cover of Raw Power, with Emma joining in during the second verse). During live performances during Tour de America in 3-D, Rupert Grint performed the song while wearing a frilled bikini. The cover will be included as the opening track on the 2009 album Greatest Hits II.
The Remington Steelers also released a music video, which cut Daniel's rendition of the opening line. The music video showed Rupert, Emma, Daniel, Kay Panabaker, and Stradlin on a roller coaster. With the exception of Stradlin, the entire band cross-dressed for this video, which also featured GNR frontman Rose, Duff (now the Velvet Revolver bassist), and Metallica frontman James Hetfield among others making cameo appearences as other people on the roller coaster.
