AllMusic Review by

Champions of Rock-n-Roll, Vol. 3: Stud Rock - Wild Ride stays true to its title by including three instances of hair metal (White Lion, Poison, and Whitesnake), a few FM classic rock staples from Free, Bad Company, and James Gang, and at least one Lynyrd Skynyrd tune. That said, what is INXS doing here? Why is Loverboy's "Hot Girls in Love" included and not their finest "stud" moment, "Turn Me Loose?" Surely Whitesnake are better prepared to "Slide It In" or give it to somebody "Slow 'n' Easy" in the "Still of the Night" than meekly inquire, "Is This Love." Also, good for Blackfoot.
