Very underrated they were one of the first groove metal bands

Yes, it is rumoured Pantera stole their sound, but Pantera made mince meat out of these guys. Quality thrash though.

These guys are pretty much the reason Pantera became popular

I can listen to Ratt for hours straight because I like every single song they've done. They're another crossover into my hard rock list. Saw them with Stryper, and they were amazing.

You saw Ratt with Stryper? My goodness! Was the crowd all holding hands during this bill of bills? Did you get a missionary position afterwards?

One of the kings of glam. Even I own 'Out of the Cellar'.

428? are you kidding me people?
