Overview:
Winger is the debut album from the American heavy metal band Winger. The album was released by Atlantic Records in 1988 and was produced by Beau Hill.

The music was radio-friendly, but with a progressive twist. The lyrics, however, were typical of the age and genre.

It produced a number of radio and video hits, including "Headed for a Heartbreak" and "Seventeen", peaking at #19 and #26 at the Billboard's single chart. On February 11, 1989, the album peaked at number 21 on the Billboard 200. It achieved platinum status in the United States and went gold in Canada and Japan.

The name "Sahara" appears in the lower right hand section of the album cover. The band initially wanted to call themselves "Sahara", but that name was taken by another band at the time. Though they ultimately chose the name Winger, "Sahara" remained on the cover.
