BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Vive Le Rock” is a song by English musician Adam Ant from his third solo album of the same name (1985). CBS Records released it as the album’s second single on July 1, 1985. That summer, Ant secured a spot at the Live Aid concert – the first live performance of the “Ant/Marco/Wiczling/De Niro” band – but was asked to cut his set to one song, for which he chose his new single, the “Vive le Rock”. The single, however stalled at #50 in the UK, in part due to a pressing error with many copies featuring the A-side track on both sides.

“Vive Le Rock” did not chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 but did make an appearance on the US dance chart peaking at #29.

The b-side Greta X is a track recorded by Adam in 1978.
