The first rebellion started in 1986. New Jersey kids, Punk and Metal attitude, determined to conquer the world. All for one, banded together with single-minded purpose. The battlefield was the stage, the songs their arsenal in an us-against-them musical coup d'état. Top Ten singles. Gold and multi-platinum sales. #1 on the Billboard Album chart. The world was theirs, the rebellion won, until there was nothing left to fight for - so they fought each other. Following an ill-advised South American tour in 1996, the band was finished. But the core camaraderie never died. Sabo says they were eagerly up to the challenge. "We seem to be at our best when we're faced with adversity. It's us against the world again - and by us I mean the band and the fans who stick with us and carry the Skid Row torch without fail."
