Raging Strings: Aerosmith vs. Guns N' Roses

Who can forget the first few measures of Aerosmith's monster ballad "I Don't Want To Miss a Thing?" Orchestrally robust, the song became the unforgettable theme song to the '90s blockbuster summer film Armageddon as well as one of Diane Warren's biggest hits. However, the strings in Guns N' Roses' "November Rain" definitely helped define the hair ballad era in the '80s. Both tunes are dripping with melodramatic romance (yet rocking with bad boy attitude)  — but which song uses strings best? Leave a comment below and let us know!
