Discography/Album Reviews


Like Skid Row, Warrant entered the music industry too late to make any big influence. Their debut album, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinkin’ Rich, along with Cherry Pie, are the only albums of their’s that ever charted, but they kept releasing albums throughout the 90’s. They have never disbanded, outliving many of their other better-selling pretty-boy counterparts.

With a pair of double-platinum albums, Warrant was one of the most popular pop-metal bands of the late '80s. Formed in Los Angeles in the mid-'80s, the group featured vocalist Jani Lane, guitarist Erik Turner, guitarist Joey Allen, bassist Jerry Dixon, and drummer Steven Sweet. They released Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich in 1989; by the middle of that year, it had climbed into the Top Ten and launched the hit singles "Down Boys," "Sometimes She Cries," and "Heaven," which reached number two. Released in the summer of 1990, Cherry Pie was an even bigger success, climbing into the Top Ten and featuring the Top Ten hits "I Saw Red" and "Cherry Pie." Warrant had some trouble continuing their multi-platinum success during the alternative explosion of 1992, although their third album, Dog Eat Dog, did go gold; 1995's Ultraphobic, however, failed to chart. Under the Influence, the band's first proper release in more than six years, was issued in spring 2001.
