Survivor is an American rock band formed when its core members Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan first joined forces in 1977. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s with its album-oriented rock (AOR), which garnered many charting singles, especially in the United States. The band is best known for its 1982 hit “Eye of the Tiger”, the theme song for the motion picture Rocky III (US #1). Singles like “Burning Heart” (US #2), “The Search Is Over” (#4 US), “High on You” (#8 US) and the ephemeral “I Can’t Hold Back (US #13) continued to chart in the mid-1980s.

The band tweaked its musical direction in 1988 with the release of the slightly heavier Too Hot to Sleep, but due to changes in the music industry and shift of popularity onto bands like Motley Crue and Poison, the album barely reached the Billboard 200 in the United States. Because of this, the band split, but singer Jimi Jamison would later tour as “Survivor” in the mid-1990s to the rest of the band’s chagrin. Jamison re-united with the band’s other members in 2000 and the band relased Reach in 2006, but Jamison left the band after its release and was replaced by Robin McAuley. The band has continued to tour with McAuley into 2008.
