LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A county commissioner in Las Vegas says she regrets the board renamed a street in honor of Guns N' Roses after finding out about the band's suggestive promotional poster.

An ad promoting the band's four-week run at the Hard Rock Hotel depicts a woman who appears to be sexually assaulted beneath the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.

It's a sanitized version of the banned cover for the album "Appetite for Destruction," which features a disheveled woman with a breast exposed and underwear pulled below her knees.

County leaders this week temporarily renamed Paradise Road to Paradise City Road after the band's famous song.

Commissioner Mary Beth Scow tells the Las Vegas Sun she didn't know about the inappropriate poster.

Neither the hotel nor the band returned calls seeking comment.
