"Eye Of The Tiger" was released on May 31, 1982 as a single from the band's third album of the same name and was also the theme song for the 1982 film "Rocky III", which was released a day before the single. The song was written by Survivor guitarist Frankie Sullivan and keyboardist Jim Peterik, and it was recorded at the request of "Rocky III" star, writer, and director Sylvester Stllone, after Queen denied him permission to use "Another One Bites The Dust", the song Stallone intended as the "Rocky III" theme. "Eye Of The Tiger" topped the hitlists in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Norway, Finland, Ireland, and reached also the no.1 position of the Global Year-End Chart 1982 with a total of 10,251,000 points.
