Toms River, New Jersey, United States
80's American hard rock/heavy metal band
Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. The group was commercially successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with its first two albums Skid Row (1989) and Slave to the Grind (1991) certified multi-platinum, the latter of which reached number one on the Billboard 200. The band's third album Subhuman Race (1995) was also critically acclaimed, but failed to repeat the success of its predecessors. During this period, the band consisted of bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarists Dave Sabo and Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Affuso, and frontman Sebastian Bach.
Thoughts on Songs with Skid Row
"We are the youth gone wild!" One magnificent sing-along! According to Sebastian Bach when discussing his possible return to the group, he mentions that he still gets that when walking on the street from people! Well, original Gn'R are about to hit the road again and we all damn well know that this goes down like domino...
Let's rebel man! That was real talk, no Avenged Sevenfold, no label fabricated, inked up kids, that was real rockers, rocking their hearts out. No spotify, no apple, no tidal, it was all about getting your tight jeans on and coming down to the show, buy yourself a vinyl if budget allowed so...
This was Skid Row's moment in terms of ballads; Yes, the 80's produced a rich share in the rock ballads department, and Skid Row's moment was not one to be taken lightly. It's the verse about the rain that's pouring, it's Bach's blond straight hair that's a symbol of the 80's; element by element is built up your love for that song.
