The Best & Worst of Warrant – Ep563


We’re back this week to discuss a band that experienced highs, lows, and tragedy throughout their career as we pick The Best & Worst of Warrant.

Warrant, formed in Hollywood in 1984, would go through changes in their early years that would lead to recruiting then-Plain Jane members Jani Lane and Steven Sweet into the band. A false start under Prince, a soundtrack appearance, and touring would result in the band getting signed to Columbia Records.

1989’s ‘Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich’ would spawn several hit singles including ‘Down Boys,’ ‘Big Talk,’ and ‘Heaven’ with the latter hitting #2 on Billboard.

The doors would blow wide open with the release of 1990’s ‘Cherry Pie,’ a song that was a blessing and a curse to the band. Controversy would also follow the band on their first two albums with British guitarist Mike Slamer being rumored to handle all guitar parts in the studio.

1992 would see musical tides shifting amid the release of ‘Dog Eat Dog,’ a tougher album produced by Michael Wagener.

Things would stranger and more experimental with the band’s 1995 and 1996 releases, ‘Ultraphobic’ and ‘Belly to Belly’ respectively. The band would flame out and briefly reunite before shifting singers twice more. Lead singer Jani Lane would tragically pass away to alcohol poisoning in 2011.

We cover the Jani Lane lane era of Warrant this week and discuss those albums as well as the new tracks on Greatest & Latest (1999) and Under the Influence (2001) while picking what we deem to be the best and worst track off each. There’s a lot to cover on and off the stage with this band and we think you’ll enjoy our discussion. Let us know what your Best & Worst of Warrant is in the comments!
