GREATEST HITS
Y & T Greatest Hits

In 1972, Y&T started out as an Oakland, CA band called "Yesterday and Today," named after a Beetle's album.  Only two albums were released under the full name of the band, and both of these were in mid to late 1970's (see the discography on this page).  It wasn't until 1980, with a new record deal on A&M Records, that the band officially shortened their name to Y&T.       

Interestingly enough, their first three releases as Y&T, considered by many to be their best work, were not earth shattering releases.   EarthShaker featured the great song "Rescue Me", and their 1982 release, Black Tiger, featured the great song "Open Fire".  Y&T reached their greatest success with the 1984 release of In Rock We Trust, which charted at 46 on the Billboard Top 200 and featured the hit song "Don't Stop Runnin".  The band's best charting single was from their 1985 release, Down for the Count, that featured the hit song "Summertime Girls" (this song hit 17 on the US Rock charts).  Other songs you may remember from Y&T include "Mean Streak", "Lipstick and Leather", "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", and "Contagious", many of which include MTV/VH1 videos.

Y&T officially split up in 1991.  Over the years, the band has reunited in one form or another both on stage and in the studio.  At the time of this writing, the Y&T Discography was as follows:
