The Wildhearts are a rock group from Newcastle
Upon Tyne, England. The bands' sound is a mixture of heavy metal and melodic pop music, combining influences as diverse as The Beatles
and 1980s-era Metallica. The Wildhearts were hugely influential in the mid-1990s, although they themselves never achieved
huge success, due in part to the indifference of radio stations and the mainstream music press, and also many "in camp" problems.
In the band's turbulent and unpredictable history, many members have come and gone, but they have always been based around
founding member Ginger (real name David Walls), the singer, guitarist and predominant songwriter. Despite many of their singles
being refused air play on the radio in their early days they still managed to enter the British charts in the top 20, and
the band have remained at the forefront of the British Rock Scene since 1993.
