Cool Kids is the second studio album by the glam metal band Kix. It was released in 1983 on Atlantic Records.

Background[edit]

Cool Kids reached position #177 on the Billboard charts. It showcases a slightly more commercial side of the band.

"Body Talk" was the first single to be released off of the album. Written by Nick "Hot Child in the City" Gilder, it was believed to have been composed to appease the group's label. The band was also urged to shoot a video for the song, which featured the Kix members cavorting with ladies in full-on workout garb.
