Lyrics:
Yeah!

I'm from south Philadelphia
I'm from Avenue C
I've seen the empty eyes of a vacant breed
I'm from the Valley too

[Chorus]
I Don't Care About You
Fuck you!
I Don't Care About You
Fuck you!

I seen Hollywood Boulevard
Wellfair hotel
And I spent the night in jail
At the Wilkins Hotel

[Chorus]

I seen an old man have a heart attack in Manhattan
Well, he died while we just stood their looking at him
Ain't he killed

[Chorus]

I seen men rolling drugs
I seen bodies in the streets
I saw a man who was sleeping in his own puke
And a man with no legs crawl down 5th street
Trying to God to get something to eat

[Chorus]

Fuck you!

[Spoken]
Uh, that hurt man
Alright
Perfect


Quote:
That song happens to be a sentiment that I appreciated for as long as I can remember. In our junkie days, me and a friend of mine, Danny Biral, used to cruise around town in this huge green Oldsmobile and try to cop. We listened to the Fear cassette because that's all we had. That song turned into an anthem for us. When the band was talking about punk songs, I was adamant about doing that one [Gill (1994) Punk Days Revisited: Slash Returns To His Roots, Guitar Player - Jan, 1994].

"Buick Makane", "Hair Of The Dog", and "I Don't Care About You" were my ideas.[Guitar Player, January 1994]

A video was made for this song by August Jakobsson, the director of photography in the (unreleased) Use Your Illusion documentary and in the "Making Of" videos, who had also done videos for Duff's Believe In Me and Slash's Good To Be Alive.

Apparently it was never officially released (no wonder why).

Yeah, I know... I made the mistake to post the link on mygnr, and the person (I don't know how to charactherise him/her) who is apparently behind all the GnR related links, videos, youtube channels etc. being taken down recently, reported it.

Bah, too many idiots in the (virtual) world. Facepalm
While it's not their best video, it still helps to "promote" GN'R and their records, so I don't see the real problem... I can only guess the problem is in some people's heads. Mad

In any case, it was harmless. The director had just uploaded it on his vimeo channel.

About some information posted elsewhere:
August Jakobsson, the director of this video, didn't direct the video for Since I Don't Have You. That one was directed by Sante D' Orazio.

List of August Jakobsson's work. It includes his work on the UYI tour and documentary (click on filmography):

For the record, www.a-4-d.com was the first web page to report about the existence of this video (a couple of days later I posted about it on mygnrforum too).
So if any other GnR website takes credit for it, well, it just isn't true.

The fact that Axl can sing with this voice but has only used it on one released song, baffles me. Most people have no idea about his amazing vocal abilities. I really like his intonation on the third verse just before going into the chorus.

Yes, and because "Spaghetti" is not very popular among GnR fans, even people who have followed the band don't know that it's Axl singing on this song and assume that it's someone else.
I don't know, maybe using this voice much would be too hard or damaging for him? I think he had used it on "It tastes good, don't it" at a show and he blew his throat.
