Hard rock icons Skid Row formed in New Jersey in 1986. The band enjoyed a huge run of success l in the late 1980s and early 1990s including two multi-platinum certified albums – Skid Row and Slave to the Grind, the latter of which reached number one on the Billboard 200. The band’s long list of hit songs includes “Youth Gone Wild”, “I Remember You”, “18 and Life” , “We Are The Damned”, “Monkey Business”, and “Let’s Go”. The band’s most recent release is 2014’s Rise of the Damnation Army - United World Rebellion: Chapter Two.
Fuel burst on the national music in 1998 with the release of their critically lauded, debut album Sunburn, with the massive hit single “Shimmer”. Their second album Something Like Human took the band to a new level of stardom, hitting multi-platinum status driven by the singles “Innocent” and “Hemorrhage”, which remained at No. 1 for 10 weeks. In 2014 Fuel released Puppet Strings, on MRI/Red. Catapulted by the first single, the driving, hypnotic “Soul To Preach To”, the album entered the Billboard rock charts at #1.
