Marty about 'Young heroes'
'Young heroes' was written specifically again for young people. It's a kind of light rebellious song. The kids today are like the kids of any young generation: they are the young heroes and we think the song explains that. We had a few problems with Kim's vocals because the actual melody line on it is such that in some parts it is very, very high and in others it's very, very low.
