George Thorogood and Co.'s profile was significantly raised when they supported The Rolling Stones on their extensive North American arena tour in late-1981. By this stage, the band's contract with Rounder had expired and The Destroyers instead signed to EMI, who issued their perennially popular, gold-selling fifth studio effort, Bad To The Bone in August 1982. One of The Destroyers' most potent recordings, the album featured honky-tonk piano flourishes from unofficial "sixth" Rolling Stone Ian Stewart, inspired covers (The Isley Brothers' "Nobody But Me" and a stately acoustic reading of Bob Dylan's "Wanted Man") and two of Thorogood's best-loved originals ("Back To Wentzville" and the ballsy "Bad To The Bone"). Arguably Thorogood's signature tune, "Bad To The Bone" later also enjoyed widespread exposure in film and TV, featuring in Miami Vice and the sci-fi thriller Terminator 2: Judgement Day, among others.
