Stage: Zippo Encore Stage Day: Friday Set Time: 13:50 – 14:25

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. No. 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.

They got older, but Skid Row never really grew up. United World Rebellion – Chapter Three is still the youth gone wild, their musical spark still burning gasoline. And so the rebellion continues.
