Formed in Los Angeles, RATT exploded on to the national scene in 1984 with the release of Out Of The Cellar. Featuring an undeniable hook and legendary music video, lead single “Round And Round” hit #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, while “Out Of The Cellar” reached #7 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified triple platinum. Two more charting singles followed with “Back For More” and “Wanted Man”. RATT started the tour as an opening act, but by the end of the tour had climbed to arena headliner. 

RATT returned in 1985 with their 2nd full length album, Invasion Of Your Privacy. Certified double platinum and also reaching #7 on the Billboard Top 200, Invasion of Your Privacy also featured the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hit “Lay It Down” and the classic “You’re In Love”. Another hit music video was made for “What You Give Is What You Get”. 

Dancing Undercover followed in 1986 as RATT toured North America with a brand new LA band called POISON as the opening act. Lead single “Dance” hit the Billboard Hot 100 and spawned another music video hit with “Slip Of The Lip,” while “Body Talk” was featured in a key scene in the Eddie Murphy film, The Golden Child. Dancing Undercover became RATT’s 3rd consecutive PLATINUM album and reached #26 on the Billboard Top 200. 

1988’s Reach For The Sky saw RATT return to the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200 album charts, peaking at #17. Driven by the bluesy hit and MTV favorite “Way Cool Jr.,” Reach For The Sky was also certified PLATINUM and became RATT’s 4th album in a row to move well over a million copies. “I Want A Woman” was also a successful single and the video captured the excitement and energy of RATT live. 

The original era of RATT ended in 1990 with Detonator. Music was changing, but Detonator was still a success, peaking at #23 on the Billboard Top 200 and going GOLD. The first album to feature major outside songwriting contributions (Desmond Child, Diane Warren) and guests (Jon Bon Jovi, Michael Schenker). Lead single “Lovin’ You’s A Dirty Job” hit #18 on the Rock Charts while the power ballad “Giving Yourself Away” reached #39. 

Also included in the LP set ONLY is the final RATT release of the Atlantic Era, 1991’s “Nobody Rides For Free” which was featured in the Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze hit film, Point Break
