Youth Gone Wild – Skid Row

Don’t these pretty boys have the shiniest long hair? And they know how to wear a pair of denim jeans.

Youth Gone Wild was Skid Row’s debut single from their first eponymous album in 1989. While the single itself didn’t chart well, the song was played heavily on MTV and contributed to the overall success of the album. Wikipedia reports that the band’s sucess was sullied by the fact that a large percentage of song royalties were actually paid to Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, in payment for their “leg up” from the better-known band.
