This lyric is most likely referring to Guns N’ Roses’ 1986 EP ‘Live Like A Suicide’. Guns N’ Roses is a rock band from Los Angeles that started in 1985. I don’t know why this band would appear in a punk vinyl collection. It seems that Fat Mike is confused as well.

31 Minutes Of Group Sex
The Circle Jerks was a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles, California. Instead of saying that they have two copies of ‘Group Sex’, Fat Mike says they have thirty-one-minutes of ‘Group Sex’. This is a joke about the album being just over fifteen-minutes long.
