Winger is remembered as one of the better Hair Bands of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and In the Heart of the Young was their breakout album. The band is fronted by Kip Winger, a former guitarist for Alice Cooper, and included Reb Beach, Paul Taylor, and Rod Morgenstein. The song itself is typical, but it was noted for its high quality video, which got a lot of air play. They seemed headed for superstardom, but musical tastes changed dramatically in the early 1990s, and Winger broke up in 1994. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
