"18 til I Die" is a rock song written by Bryan Adams, and Robert John "Mutt" Lange for Adams seventh studio recorded album 18 til I Die (1996).[1] Its lyrics are about maintaining youthful traits, even as one grows older. Released as a single in the UK in April 1997, it peaked at number 22 in the charts.[2] It found its biggest success in Adams' native Canada, where it peaked at number 21, while it failed to make a significant impact elsewhere. Despite barely charting anywhere, Adams continues to play this song at his concerts. Six songs recorded live at Adams' Wembley Stadium concert on July 27, 1996, were included as B-sides to its single release, spread out over two discs.[3] They were later included in the album release of the concert.
