No. 22: Skid Row, ‘Skid Row’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

Skid Row, 'Skid Row'

While there were a ton of hard rock bands with notable frontmen in the mid-to-late ’80s, there weren’t many who held a candle to the vocal range provided by Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach. And Bach had a killer band to work with, as Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo, Scotti Hill, Rachel Bolan and Rob Affuso handled both full-on rockers and power ballads with skill.

The band’s self-titled 1989 debut disc got off to a rocking start with the fist-pumping ’18 and Life’ setting the tone. The huge power ballad ‘I Remember You’ followed and was virtually inescapable in ’89 and the band capped off their singles from the album with the rock anthem, ‘Youth Gone Wild.’
