Kilroy Was Here is the eleventh studio album by the rock band Styx, released on February 22, 1983. The album is named after a famous World War II graffiti, 'Kilroy was here'. It was the final album of original material to be released by the "classic" lineup of Dennis DeYoung, Tommy Shaw, James ". Young, John Panozzo, and Chuck Panozzo. The album spawned two hit singles, the synth-pop "Mr. Roboto" which later became one of their signature songs, and the power ballad "Don't Let It End".

On Feb. 28, 1983, Styx followed with Kilroy Was Here, their most ambitious concept album yet. But within a year, tensions in the group came to a breaking point, bringing the classic era of Styx to an end. Styx leader Dennis DeYoung felt the only way for the group to top the No. 1 success of Paradise Theatre was to capture the band on film. Kilroy Was Here would star DeYoung as a rock star named Robert Orin Charles Kilroy (note that the initials spell "ROCK") imprisoned in a future where rock and roll has been banned. The story was partially inspired by an incident in which a pair of conservative televangelists had tried to garner publicity by accusing Styx of "backward Satanic masking. The character of the totalitarian dictator Dr. Everett Righteous – the leader of the fictional Majority for Musical Morality – was DeYoung's backhanded swipe at Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority.
