Ratt was a band I grew up listening to.  They were not the greatest band of the mid 1980's, but they were good and had more then a few decent songs.  This being one of my favorites:

Where's the vomit emoticon when you need it? Can't believe they are still around. Truly one of the worst bands I ever saw in concert. Pure hair-metal poofery cheese. Canned-sound (sweetened with backing tapes?) and Stephen Pearcy's voice was atrocious...fingernails on blackboard.

Warren Demartini is a very underrated guitarist, imho. There was a lot of great hard rock musicians in the 1980's that unfortunately were part of the glam thing. All of those bands, musically anyway, were just trying to do their best version of Zeppelin.

More like trying to do their best version of Van Halen-Kiss-Aerosmith. Hair-metal had nothing to do with Led Zeppelin, no matter what revisionists try to tell you.

Indeed. That's like calling/blaming the Beatles a 'boy-band'.

Demartini can play, but is just in the wrong place. I do enjoy this kind of music, laugh if you want, however not this band.

I liked Round and Round because it's a good pop song (it's a solid go-to drunken/stoned song because of the vocal melody) but I'v never heard any evidence of either guitarist being any good. Sure they can play the thing but is there anything that blows people away? I'm open to references.

Ratt were absolute shite. I was a teenager when hair rock, or whatever the fuck it was called, was all the rage. I was already into Zeppelin and Roy Harper. Guns n roses were good though. 

When I went to the "Monsters of Rock" in Donington 91, it was AC/DC , Metallica, motley Crüe, Quuensryche and the Black Crowes. That was a proper line up, except for Motley Crüe. They stank the place out

 :o Well i still like some of their stufff.  DeMartini was another underappreciated guitar  player. That dude has some bad-ass riffs.

I do like many of the bands from this era, but this is not one of them. The orig guitar player, I think it was Warren Dimartini had some good chops, but to me their songs felt empty. Perhaps it's the vocals, or perhaps they just aren't very good.
