With a pair of double-platinum albums, Warrant were one of the most popular glam-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 late in 1988 and by the middle of 1989, it had climbed into the Top Ten and launched the hit singles Down Boys and Sometimes She Cries.
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, Cherry Pie and Heaven.
Warrant had some trouble continuing their multi-platinum success during the alternative grunge explosion of 1992, although their third album, Dog Eat Dog, did go gold.
