The RAPIDFIRE tapes, which were purportedly recorded in May 1983, have been in storage in the original eight-track format for almost 30 years. The songs featured on the tape are as follows:

01. Ready To Rumble
02. All Night Long
03. The Prowler
04. On the Run
05. Closure

RAPIDFIRE‘s lineup was as follows:

Axl Rose - Vocals
Kevin Lawrence - Guitar
Mike Hammernik - Bass
Chuck Gordon – Drums

According to Lawrence, Axl‘s voice on the RAPIDFIRE recording sounds a bit “more Rob Halford“-ish compared to his vocals on “Appetite for Destruction”.
