Wild in the Streets was the sixth album by the rock band Helix, released in 1987.

The album went gold in the band's native Canada,[2] but only managed a disappointing #179 on the Billboard 200 in the United States.[3] The band would lose their U.S. deal with Capitol Records soon after.[4]

The power ballad "Dream On" is a cover of a 1982 song by Nazareth. "She's Too Tough" was written in 1985 by Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott. Def Leppard's version of the song was intended at one time to be on their Hysteria album, but it was never released until 1993's "Heaven Is" single, and later 1993's Retro Active album.

The original Canadian cassette issue of this album came in a glow-in-the-dark cassette shell.
