Young Savage

 "Young Savage" is the second single of the experimental New Wave band Ultravox!. It was released as a single by Island Records on 28 May 1977, during a time of experimentation to define a new sound for the band, in advance of their second album.

The song was made in a punk style, although the band denied it was a 'punk' song, pointing out that Billy Currie's keyboard playing is in a psychedelic style. It's their first release from the Ha!-Ha!-Ha! sessions, and is notably different from the material on their first album Ultravox!, which had more glam songs. A definitive song in the band's development, and a popular single at the time, the 2006 reissue edition of the latter album contains it as bonus track. 'Young Savage' was also improbably named as record of the week on Mark & Lard's Radio 1 show in 2002.

The B-Side of 'Young Savage' is a live version of "Slip Away", recorded during a gig at The Rainbow in London in 1977.

'Young Savage' is one of four live tracks featured on the Retro EP, released on 10 February 1978. This performance was recorded at the Marquee in London. The live version as featured on the 'Retro EP' is also one of the bonus tracks on the 2006 edition of Ha!-Ha!-Ha!.
