Warriors of the Wasteland (single)

Warriors of the Wasteland is the sixth single from Frankie Goes to Hollywood, released in 1986. It was taken from the album Liverpool.

Having already tackled the literary heavyweights like Coleridge (Welcome to the Pleasuredome) and Thomas (Rage Hard), for Warriors of the Wasteland the Frankies turned to T. S. Eliot for inspiration. The track is said to be inspired by both Eliot's The Hollow Men poem and the Mad Max series of films, starring Mel Gibson:

"Thanks to Eliot for the Wasteland and Mad Max for the Warriors".

Even though it featured 3 different 12" singles, "Warriors of the Wasteland" reached Number 19 in the UK singles charts, #7 in Germany (for two weeks) and #13 in Switzerland.
