58 is an American rock band, a side project involving Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe and producer Dave Darling, Sixx's former father-in-law. The band name originates from the fact that both Sixx and Darling were born in 1958. The band also included Steve Gibb (son of Bee Gees's Barry Gibb) on guitar and Bucket Baker on drums. The band described themselves as a mixture of "glam, hip hop, rock, pop, funk and a car crash."[1]

They released one album, Diet for a New America, in June 2000 on Americoma and Beyond Records.[2][3]

The original Demo for "1958" was recorded in 1996. The demo was Produced by Scott Humphrey and assistant engineer Brian VanPortfleet. The entire 7 track demo was recorded and mixed in two weeks.
