The smash hits “Cherry Pie” and “Heaven” kick-started Warrant’s career and skyrocketed the band to stardom. Warrant boasts two double-platinum albums and three Top Ten singles. Formed in 1984, the band garnered initial success through the regional and local club scene of Hollywood, Calif. Warrant signed with Columbia Records in 1988 and released their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich one year later which contained the wildly popular hit “Heaven.” Heaven” ranked #1 in Rolling Stone and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Warrant followed their first album with the release of Cherry Pie in 1990. With this album, Warrant produced three hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red.” Cherry Pie sold three million copies. Warrant continues to rock audiences with their high-voltage music, touring with an all-star lineup of other rock legends such as Mötley Crue and Poison and continues to headline without any sign of the slowing down.
One of the last hair metal bands to gain popularity with mainstream audiences, Skid Row, has humble beginnings. The American heavy metal band Skid Row formed in a garage in Toms River, N.J. in 1986. The popularity of the band exploded during the 1980s and early 1990s with their debut self-titled album selling over five million copies. Skid Row’s anthems “18 and Life,” “I Remember You,” and “Youth Gone Wild” made the band a hit with audiences. Their second album Slave to the Grind topped Billboard charts at #1 and achieved multi-platinum status opening the doors to a world tour. Skid Row continues to produce crowd-pleasing records and rock audiences with their guitar-shredding sound.
