Guns N’ Roses broke into mainstream consciousness in 1987 with their single “Welcome to the Jungle,” which introduced them to the world and made them superstars. 36 years after it was first released, that cut is on the rise on the Billboardcharts, and it’s not the only piece of music from the band that’s still incredibly popular.

“Welcome to the Jungle” is up on two Billboard rankings this week. It’s not common for many decades-old singles to appear on charts in the U.S., and even those that manage to do so rarely climb on more than one tally at a time without any major provocation.

This week, “Welcome to the Jungle” returns to the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales chart. On that ranking of the bestselling tracks in the U.S. that Billboard classifies as hard rock when it comes to genre, the Guns N’ Roses hit reappears at No. 5. It wasn’t present on the list last frame.

“Welcome to the Jungle” came very close to matching its previously-set peak on the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales chart this week. The catchy cut has climbed as high as No. 3, and if things had played out slightly differently this frame, Guns N’ Roses might have returned to that best showing.

On top of selling a healthy sum, “Welcome to the Jungle” is also still streaming well. The tune settles at No. 22 on the Hard Rock Streaming Songs chart this period. That’s up just one slot from last time around.

Guns N’ Roses claims a pair of wins on the Hard Rock Streaming Songs ranking this week. “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” which was an even larger smash on some Billboard charts–like the Hot 100–is performing even better. That cut remains stationary at No. 7 on the streaming-only roster.

The ongoing streaming and sales activity focused around songs like “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” is helping the band maintain a presence on several other Billboard lists. The group’s Greatest Hits project, which features both of those tunes–the first two on its tracklist, actually–is up slightly on both the Billboard 200 and Top Rock & Alternative Albums charts this week, lifting just one space.

GNR have a timeless sound. They'll probably chart long after they're gone.

You guys ever see those "reaction" videos on YouTube of people hearing songs or bands for the first time?  Do you ever believe them?

Am I truly supposed to believe you have NEVER heard 'Welcome To The Jungle'?  Have you never been to a sporting event?

They were fun the first few times. Now it just seems kinda fake as you pointed out.

Unless it's kids who probably don't listen to a certain genre...
