Skid Row - Youth Gone Wild

"Youth Gone Wild" is the debut single by Skid Row and the lead single from their 1989 eponymous debut album.
Its music video received heavy airplay on MTV; however, while the album itself was a major hit and went multi-platinum in the U.S. and other countries, "Youth Gone Wild" as a single only reached #99 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and reached #20 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.[1]
The song was re-released in 1992 on the B-Side Ourselves album with Delivering the Goods single and charted again at #22 on the UK Singles chart.[2]
The song is played at many sports arenas including at the United Center when the Chicago Blackhawks hit the ice. The State College Moose of the Nittany Hockey League also use it as their theme song during warm-ups. "Youth Gone Wild" is also featured as a playable song on the Guitar Hero: On Tour game for the Nintendo DS, the drum simulation game Rock Revolution, and as downloadable content for Karaoke Revolution Presents American Idol Encore 2 for the PlayStation 3.[3] It is also part of the soundtrack for BrĂ¼tal Legend.
This song was also featured in WWJ as the theme for the returning Isaac O'Neill and has been covered by several bands including HammerFall, Sign, Norther, and Asking Alexandria. The song is also currently being used as one of the football highlight songs on ESPN.
