Ratt (US rock band)
Ratt is an American hard rock / heavy metal band that had significant commercial success in the 1980s, with their albums having being certified as gold, platinum, and mutli-platinum by the RIAA. The group is prehaps best known for hit 80s rock singles such as "Round and Round" and "Lay It Down", tracks that ranked on Billboard's top 40 at #12 and #40, respectively, as well as other songs such as "Wanted Man", "Way Cool Jr." and "Lovin' You's A Dirty Job".
