"Nightrain" is a song written by American hard rock band Guns N' Roses in the mid-1980s. It is the third song on the band's 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction. Although it was released as a single, the song was not included in their best-of album. It reached #93 on the US Billboard charts. The song is a tribute to an infamous brand of cheap Californian wine, Night Train Express, which was extremely popular with the band during their early days because of its low price and high alcohol content. However, it is spelled differently, omitting the 'T' from 'Train', effectively making the song title a variation of 'Night Rain'. The song was ranked eighth on Guitar World's list of the "Top 10 Drinking Songs."
