In 1985, Guns N’ Roses returned from their first tour to Seattle. Broke and unemployed, they settled in a 12-square-foot warehouse behind Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. The property had no bathroom, kitchen, or air conditioning. The band members dubbed it “Hell House.”

Despite living off of a $4 daily budget and walking 50 yards to the nearest bathroom, the band still managed to write their album Appetite For Destruction. The house may have even inspired their hit song “Welcome to the Jungle.”
