Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in New Jersey. Lead singer Sebastian Bach is perfect with his vocals, and their rasp and violent solo guitar riffs fit well with the late 80s metal making it one of the most successful songs of the band. Plus, they had something extra -- a flick of the wrist, a flip of the hair, a cracked smile, and a gleam in the eye.

Come to think of it, their songs are dead simple and quite short, with memorable choruses packed for easy commercial digestion. "I Remember You" is the best song in the whole history of Skid Row, and one of the best rock ballads of all time! This song surely isn't groundbreaking or anything, but I still consider it as one of the best songs in my collection, because of its sheer energy.
