"Used to Love Her" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler....
I used to love her but I had to kill her
I used to love her, oh yeah but I had to kill her
I had to put her six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

I used to love her, oh yeah but I had to kill her
I used to love her, ooh yeah but I had to kill her
I knew I'll miss her so I had to keep her
She's buried right in my back yard
Oh yeah, ooh yeah, whoa oh yeah

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, ooh yeah but I had to kill her
She bitched so much, she drove me nuts
And now I'm happier this way
Whoa oh yeah
(Take it for what it is)

I used to love her, but I had to kill her
I used to love her, ooh yeah but I had to kill her
I had to put her six, ooh, feet under
And I can still hear her complain

    General CommentUsed to love her is a song about Slash's female dog (or Axl's dog or Duff's dog, I don't remember exactly), he loved her, but had to kill her and "buried right in my backyard". Truth.

    General CommentWHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN, bugmenot? It wasn't a female dog. Haven't you ever heard Used to love her of the live Era cd? In the beginning, Axl says that this song was written 'cause sometimes you think you're boyfriend or girlfriend is a pain in the ass and you wish you could cut his fuckin' head off and bury him ou her in the backyard. I sometimes feel this way 'bout my passions.

    General CommentIts about a dog, but obviously written intentionally to sound like a girlfriend simply for the controversy. Hey Billion, the line: "She bitched so much"= A dog that is very sick or injured and needs to be put to sleep.

    Songwriters write songs this way intentionally to get a rise out of people. Just like how Sting wrote "Every Breath You Take" very carefully to almost make it sound romantic, and people dance to it at their weddings...but Sting laughs because the song is really about a STALKER! But I digress...

    General CommentThis isnt about a dead dog, its a song about a girl some guy loved and then she started being a bitch, so he killed her and buried her in his backyard. Its a joke, not serious.

    General CommentAxl kept getting whined and bitched by his girl so much he fucking wanted to kill her. Or left her, but she keeps trying to ring 'I can still hear her complain'

    General CommentCome on, Slash himself said this song is a joke. It's not about any human, it's simply about a dog. Check this: gnrinfo.tk
