That's the way I always looked at it anyway.
In one of the concerts or interviews, Axl Rose stated that he's not going to sing 'get in the ring' as his point has already been adressed in the studio just like 'One in the Million.'
Basically, what he said in 'Get in the Ring, One in the million', he really meant what he said.
What did he "say" though?

Either way, I tend to ignore the Artists personal views and form my own interpretation of the lyrics. I view that song as the internal workings of the angst ridden skinhead. An example of darkness to be avoided.

No, they make me feel like a person that listens to a band with a whiny vocalist and maybe four good songs. GnR is the anti-badass. Exodus, on the other hand...
