Survivor is an American rock group from Chicago best known for their number-one hit "Eye of the Tiger", which was famously featured in the soundtrack to the Creator/SylvesterStallone film ''RockyIII''. While they had other hits, none matched the huge success of this one, and as such they're often thought of as a OneHitWonder group.

* PopStarComposer: Impressed by their song "Poor Man's Son", Sylvester Stallone asked the band to write something for ''Rocky III'' after Music/{{Queen}} denied him permission to use "Another One Bites the Dust". The result was, of course, "Eye of the Tiger". Aside from that obvious example, they wrote "Burning Heart" for ''RockyIV'' and "The Moment of Truth" for the ''Film/TheKarateKid'' soundtrack.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Jamison was a preferred choice as a vocalist for DeepPurple, after Ian Gillan left the band in the late 1980s, but [[ExecutiveMeddling the record company did not let it happen]]. They had to choose Joe Lynn Turner instead.

** Their less famous hit ballad, Is This Love, also the name of a ''much'' more popular Music/{{Whitesnake}} song.

** Their less famous hit ballad, Is This Love, also the name of a ''much'' more popular Music/{{Whitesnake}} song. To the point being where both songs share the ''same first line'' for the chorus, being "Is this love that I'm feeling?"

Their greatest success was the inclusion of "Eye of the Tiger" in the soundtrack for the third ''Rocky'' film, which cemented their position as a leading ArenaRock group. They had further successes with the album ''Vital Signs'' and its hit singles "The Search Is Over", "High On You" and "I Can't Hold Back", but subsequent releases were scuppered by poor marketing on the part of their record label, precipitating their breakup at the end of the eighties.

While they're less well-remembered than contemporaries like Music/{{Journey}} or Music/{{Foreigner}}, they had a harder and heavier sound for most of their career. Although out of the limelight since the end of the eighties, members of the group still perform as Survivor and have recorded one album. Until Jimi Jamison's untimely death in 2014, they had both vocalists, Dave and Jimi, performing together with them.

* OneHitWonder: They're best known in America for "Eye of the Tiger", in spite of having other Top 40 hits, including four which reached the Top 10. Played straight elsewhere; in most territories, the ''Rocky'' song was pretty much their only significant hit.
