From Quiet Riot’s the fifth studio album “QR III” released in 1986 on Pasha/CBS. It is the last album to feature lead singer Kevin DuBrow until the 1993 album “Terrified”.
“The Wild and the Young” is the lead single of the album, a stadium hymn to the energy of youth. Its video (featuring game show host Wink Martindale in a cameo appearance) painted an Orwellian picture of the future, where totalitarian militarists fought to wipe out rock and roll — a reference to the Senate hearings concerning explicit language in heavy metal songs.
