"Youth Gone Wild" as written by and David Michael Sabo Rachel Bolan Southworth....
(Rollin')
Since I was born they couldn't hold me down
Another misfit kid, another burned-out town
I never played by the rules, I never really cared
My nasty reputation takes me everywhere

I look and see it's not only me
So many others have stood where I stand
We are the young, so raise your hands

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

Boss screamin' in my ear about who I'm supposed to be
Getcha a 3-piece wall street smile and son you'll look just like me
I said "hi man, there's something that you oughta know I'll tell ya Park Avenue leads to
Skid Row
I look and see it's not only me
We're standin' tall, ain't never a doubt
We are the young, so shout it out

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand up, we won't fall
We're one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

Let me hear you wild

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand up, we won't fall
We're one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild (oh oh oh oh)
We are the youth gone wild (oh oh oh oh)
We are the youth gone wild
Yeah yeah yeah
We are the youth gone wild (oh oh oh oh)
We are the youth gone wild

    General CommentSebastian Bach is a legend. And how the fuck can you say it's dated? Fuck that! Some of the best music is old-school. Skid Row, along with bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Guns n Roses, Motley Crue, Pantera and Metallica all emerged more than 2 decades ago. And who cares if it's old? That's what makes it so brilliant! These bands are like red wine, they get better with age. The bands of today aren't all bad, but not quite the same of those of yesteryear. This song is an anthem for all those (such as myself) who oppose authority

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has commented on this song yet. This is a great song from a damn good band. Skid Row was not just a hair band that came out of the 80's. If fate didn't oppose, this band really could have turned out to be something great. Its too bad though. I'm just glad they left their musical artifacts behind for me to discover.

    General CommentI totally agree with acetica. This song rocks because its so in your face and agressive. Very unlike the whiny ass bands of today (staind) I love Skid Row and continue to blast them at full volume while cruising in the car

    General Commentshut the fuck up ohwhocares this song will never die. It's 1 of skid rows best songs B4 they got rid of Sabation Bach and I stopped listening 2 Skid Row. I grew up with this song and it is the reason why i'm a YOUTH GONE WILD motherfucker.
    P.S. Music 2day doesn't totaly suck. Staind is still kick ass (yeah aaron lewis whines more than he should) Fuel's awesome, Cold is killer, Godsmack is kickass, and Disturbed Rocks. It's emo that has caused music 2day 2 suck alot

    General CommentThis song does remind me of Motley Crue, but Sebastian Bach's voice is perfect for this song, maybe not their heaviest, but still a great song.
