This awesome double-sided concert tee is from the heavy metal band Skid Row. The front features a portrait of the band in front of the lyrics to their song "Youth Gone Wild", while the back reads, "I survived Skid Row Live". "Youth Gone Wild" was the group's debut single off their eponymous debut album released in 1989. Other singles from the album included "18 and Life", "I Remember You", and "Piece of Me", and all of the singles had an accompanying music video which received heavy rotation on MTV, helping to boost the band's popularity.
Skid Row promoted the album with a 17 month long worldwide-tour, during which they opened for Bon Jovi who were touring to support their album New Jersey. Skid Row's guitarist, Dave Sabo was actually teenage friends with Jon Bon Jovi and the two made a pact that if either of them ever made it in the music business, they would help the other out. This pact is what prompted Bon Jovi to encourage their manager Doc McGhee to help Skid Row secure a deal with Atlanta Records. The tour also saw Skid Row opening for Motley Crue on their Dr. Feelgood Tour and Aerosmith on their Pump Tour.
