The group achieved incredible commercial success in the late 1980s a Skid Row (1989) and Slave to the Grind (1991) — have been certified multi-platinum, with the latter landing at No. 1 on the Billboard chart.  These two albums produced the band's most popular and most enduring hits, including the poignant power ballad "18 and Life" and the tugs-at-the-heart strings "I Remember You," which peaked in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The rowdy and raucous anthem "Youth Gone Wild" was also one of Skid Row's signature smashes, thanks to the combination of rowdy riffs, memorable melodies and vocals. Slave to The Grind produced singles such as "Monkey Business"," the title track, "Wasted Time," and "In a Darkened Room". The band's third album Subhuman Race arrived in 1995 and was also critically acclaimed. By the end of 1996, the band had sold a total of 20 million albums worldwide, cementing their legacy as one of the most successful and important bands of their era. During this period, Skid Row were comprised of the aforementioned Bolan, Sabo, and Bach, as well as guitarist Scotti Hill and drummer Rob Affuso. Although the lineup has shifted over time, Skid Row remain active touring the world and are currently in the studio recording a new full-length record to be released in 2022.
