Dangerous Toys was a hard rock band with southern rock undertones from Austin, Texas, achieving a short but sweet burst of success in the midst of the 80s glam metal boom. Formed in 1987, the band released four studio albums and a live album before officially disbanding in 1999. Notable for their comical 'monster clown' iconography, they have reunited a few times over the years for one off shows but have no official touring or recording plans.
Over the years, the group has become perhaps best known for their 1989 tune "Scared", an Alice Cooper inspired track featuring the refrain of "I think I like being scared". Parent album 'Dangerous Toys', the band's first full release, notably received some positive critical reviews and reached the #65 slot on the Billboard 200 chart. Lead vocalist Jason McMaster currently sings for hard rock band Broken Teeth.
