RATT – Nobody Rides For Free

Posted in 1991, Glam Rock, Hair Bands, Hard Rock, RATT on December 10, 2008 by pelicancup

Like Poison, the grunge rock movement of the early 90’s all but exterminated RATT. In 1991, they contributed this song, Nobody Rides For Free, to the soundtrack for the action flick Point Break starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. Unfortunately, the video and song didn’t receive much airplay on MTV or the radio due to the popularity of grunge rock.

This was RATT’s first single released without the late Robbin Crosby on guitar. Robbin had been kicked out of the band due to his drug abuse problems. They didn’t release another single until 1997 when they released the song Hold Tight from their compilation album Collage. Enjoy!

Poison – 7 Days Over You (Live)

Posted in 1993 Songs, Arena Rock, Hair Bands, Hard Rock, Poison on December 9, 2008 by pelicancup

Poison just released a new DVD in August called Seven Days Live. It’s footage of a 1993 Poison concert from London’s Hammersmith Apollo on April, 23, 1993. It’s a rare look at Poison on their Native Tongue tour, which featured Richie Kotzen on guitar. While the show featured a lot of Poison’s hits from the 80’s, it also featured a lot of songs from the Native Tongue album. One of those songs was this one, 7 Days Over You.

It’s really a shame that Poison’s fan base had abandoned them for grunge bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana during this time frame because musically, Native Tongue is one of Poison’s best albums. The songs are much more complex and Kotzen’s influence on guitar is unmistakable. He brought an element of blues mixed with heavy metal riffs that meshed really well with Bret’s vocals. It’s a shame Kotzen was kicked out of the band because they might still be recording new material with him. (But, you can’t blame them for kicking him out. He did sleep with Rikki Rockett’s fiance…)

Don’t get me wrong, I like Poison with C.C., but it’s no secret they were limited musically with C.C. on guitar. That’s why this DVD release is so cool because the majority of Poison fans never even listened to Native Tongue. Well, here’s your chance. Enjoy!

Giant – I’ll See You In My Dreams

Posted in 1990, Giant, Hair Bands, Rock Ballads on July 7, 2008 by pelicancup

Giant was a hair band that was a little too late to the party. Had they started about five years before, they might have had a much more lucrative career. Unfortunately, they released their first album, Last of the Runaways in 1989, which of course was one of the last full years of hair band popularity. However, they did score a decent hit with their 1990 single, I’ll See You In My Dreams, which peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and #7 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. Because this was their only hit on the Hot 100 charts, they’re considered a one-hit wonder. Enjoy!

Firehouse – Love Of A Lifetime

Posted in 1991, Firehouse, Glam Rock, Hair Bands, Heavy Metal, Love Songs, Rock Ballads on October 31, 2007 by pelicancup

Firehouse’s biggest hit was their 1991 glam rock ballad called Love Of A Lifetime. They came on to the scene just as grunge was taking over, so they weren’t able to enjoy their success for very long, but this song is on about every “love songs” CD out there, so they’re not hurting. Enjoy!
