«Hold the Line» is a song written by David Paich and recorded by American rock group Toto. The song was the band’s first single, and was featured on their debuteponymous album. It reached #5 in the US Billboard Charts during the winter of 1978–79.

«‘Hold the Line’ was a perfect example of what people will describe as your heavy metal chord guitar licks, your great triplet A-notes on the piano, your ‘Sly’-hot-fun-in-the-summertime groove, all mishmashed together with a boy from New Orleans singing… and it really crossed over a lot of lines.
