Ratt (US rock band)

~ Group


Ratt is an American rock 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 perhaps 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". Ratt has been recognized as instrumental in the formation of the early 1980s, Los Angeles glam metal scene, promoting what's known as the 'Sunset Strip' sound of pop hooks infused into an aggressive metal ethos along with groups such as friendly rivals Mötley Crüe.

The band continues to tour and record today despite extended hiatuses and line-up changes. They released their latest studio album, Infestation, on April 20, 2010. They are currently working on their next studio album.
