Hair Metal


SHE'S MY CHERRY PIE! You could sing that forever, couldn't you? Warrant was a little late to the Sunset Strip, but they partied all night with the best of them.

Warrant had 5-6 solid hits, including the power ballad Heaven, the nuanced blues heavy Uncle Tom's Cabin, and the arena rock anthem, Cherry Pie.

Cool drinks of water, Warrant has thusly been dubbed the White Leather band, by us, for their numerous appearances in the regalia on MTV.

The band notoriously gave the middle finger to Tipper Gore for her stance on the parental advisory label on their second commercially released album, Cherry Pie, with the final track entitled "Ode to Tipper Gore", a track littered with profanity.

The band was also notorious for having Mike Slamer sub-in in the studio to lay down a ton of guitar work. Rock & Rollers, man ... they just need to be good looking, ain't that right? No need to play your own instruments!

Check out this interview from Warrant's producer, Beau Hill. He references Erik and Joey not being on par with the best guitarists of the time. So, they only played on the rhythm parts.

Though former Lynch Mob vocalist, Robert Mason is currently in Warrant, the guy you remember singing is Jani Lane.

Warrant's Big Hit Single: Cherry Pie

Sure, we could have opted for Heaven and it would have done just fine. Cherry Pie is everything you want it to be and more. And, it's the video where 80s mega babe, Bobbie Brown, made it big time. It's pretty much the basis for Dirty Rocker Boys, her major book release.
