Day four at sea, my dearest landlubbers. The members of RATT are wandering the same cruise ship as your fearless Glam mistress. I wonder who will get more Shiprocked, me or Stephen Pearcy? RATT's been in the studio, working on a new disc for RoadRunner Records. It's supposed to be called Infestation (get it?!) and set to be released in March 2010. While I doubt I'll hear much new RATT during the band's concert, I fully intend to hear and enjoy all the classic hits. With that, here's my take on the top 5 RATT videos of all time.
Number 5 - "I Want A Woman." Special commentary: this is also my favorite RATT song period and I love that the show producer in this video is a woman. That is all.
Number 4 - "Givin' Yourself Away." More special commentary - Why don't people paint giant banners made of bed sheets for concerts anymore? Also, my second favorite RATT song. Alas.
Number 3 - "Slip of the Lip"
Number 2 - "Way Cool, Jr." Special commentary: the band members had hair that was, I must admit, off the chain!
Number 1 - "Wanted Man." Horrible acting and a crappy plot clearly make this one of the best metal videos of the 80s. Period.
Notice I left off "Round and Round." Bugger all, I could go without ever hearing that song again. It was RATT's breakthrough single, but I think they have much better songs and it's not fair to recognize them for only that one tune. Agree?
