Seventeen is number 87!

Confused? Don't be. Today's song of the day, "Seventeen" by the band Winger, was rated as the 87th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.

Headed by frontman Kip Winger, the band gained popularity throughout the '80s and early '90s before fading quickly to grunge. Kip Winger and Kurt Cobain likely were not great friends. While Kip went on to a brief solo career after the band broke up in 1994 he has stayed true to his comrades from his original band, Blackwood Creek, hoping to release a new album in 2009.

Seventeen was released in 1988 and hit #26 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was featured as a song on the video game Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s.

If you're a fan of glam rock or 80s hair bands you'll enjoy this gem from Winger.
