Biography

Warrant is a band from Los Angeles, California which enjoyed its greatest success in 1990 with the single and album “Cherry Pie”. The band’s brand of glam metal was loud, cheesy, sex-obsessed, and usually delivered with a mischievous sense of humour. The generally lighthearted band became known for raucous party anthems filled with thinly-veiled references to sex (“Down Boys”, “Cherry Pie”) but also for sentimental, melodic ballads (“Heaven”, “Sometimes She Cries”, “I Saw Red”).

In January 1988 Warrant signed a contract with Columbia Records, and released their debut album “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich”.

The band’s second record, Cherry Pie, was released in March 1990, and spawned the hits “Cherry Pie”, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and “I Saw Red”. It reached the Top Ten in the United States, and went on to sell 3 million copies.

In 1992, Warrant released “Dog Eat Dog”. The record, an attempt by the band to evolve in the face of changing musical trends, received critical acclaim but achieved only moderate commercial success.

After this, the band would begin a long string of member changes, including even singer Jani Lane leaving the band briefly.

He would then return to release “Ultraphobic” in 1995, and “Belly to Belly, Vol. 1” in 1998. These were released on a smaller label, as well as featured a new darker sound. Neither album would remotely come close to the success of the earlier albums. A live album, an album of re-recorded classic tracks, as well as an all-covers disc “Under the Influence” followed these.

Jani Lane would once again leave the band in 2004. Ironically, all the other original members would return to the band the same year. Black ‘N’ Blue singer Jaime St. James would take over as singer.

    After years of Warrant listening, I just recently pushed Dog Eat Dog record down my own throat for the first time. Though the songs in it aren't really bad (and some quite good actually, like The Hole In My Wall, Inside Out), the album itself is very odd. It feels like you know it's Warrant but it just doesn't sound like Warrant in many songs like Let It Rain, or Andy Warhol Was Right.

    Strange that there is not a tag 'glam' or 'poser' Tag here. Their music is clearly Glam rock/metal, and their image too. On the other hand, I am not familiar with the other German speed metal band (yet).
