Interesting facts and trivia about It's So Easy. By Songfacts®.

This song was written at a time when the band was on the rise, but their bank accounts had yet to catch up with their success. What was "so easy" was getting girls - there were groupies everywhere ready to take care of all their needs.

Guns N' Roses bass player Duff McKagan wrote this with West Arkeen, who was also a cowriter on "Patience," "The Garden" and "Yesterdays." Arkeen died of a drug overdose in 1997.

This was the first single from Appetite For Destruction. It flopped, but was followed by "Welcome To The Jungle" and then "Sweet Child O' Mine," which hit #1 in the US.
