"Youth Gone Wild" is the debut single from Skid Row's eponymous debut album.

Its music video received heavy airplay on MTV; however, while the album itself was a major hit and went multi-platinum in the U.S. and other countries, "Youth Gone Wild" as a single only reached #99 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and reached #20 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.[1]

The song was re-released as a single in 1992, with a live recording of "Delivering the Goods" (from the band's B-Side Ourselves EP) as the B-side; it charted again at #22 on the UK Singles chart.[2]

"Youth Gone Wild" has been covered by several bands including HammerFall, Sign, Norther, and Asking Alexandria.
