Guns N' Roses have quietly uploaded three videos to the internet. While the world's attention was focussed on the previously unreleased video for It's So Easy released via Apple Music, the band were also busy adding videos to their YouTube account.

First up, an "alternate" take on Sweet Child O' Mine, which various commenters correctly identified as being the video that accompanied the radio edit of the song, previously seen on 1998's Welcome To The Videos DVD.

Next up, the rarely-seen video for The Garden, originally released on Use Your Illusion 1. The original clip wasn't shown widely by MTV due to the amount of footage shot in strip clubs, but it also made the Welcome To The Videos collection.   

Finally, the first of two videos shot for Yesterdays, from Use Your Illusion II, found its way into the band's account. This video was directed by Andy Morahan, who went on to direct Highlander III: The Sorcerer and Goal III: Taking on the World. It also features on Welcome To The Videos.

Guns N’ Roses will return to Europe this summer for a run of shows including a headline set at the UK’s Download festival (opens in new tab).
