Bangin' is the second album by British rock band The Outfield, which yielded the top 40 hit, "Since You've Been Gone". The album also contained two other singles, "No Surrender" and "Bangin' on My Heart". "No Surrender" became a minor hit receiving MTV airplay and radio airplay in select markets.[citation needed] "Bangin' on My Heart" did not fare as well but did reach number 40 on the Billboard rock chart. The album was certified gold by the RIAA.[citation needed] "Alone With You" on the other hand, was a certified smash hit in the Philippines, even up to this day.
