Ratt is an American hard rock and heavy metal band created in 1976 in San Diego, California.
Ratt's signature sunset strip sound made the Los Angeles based outfit one of the most popular rock acts of the mid-'80s.
As the story goes, Ratt helped pioneer Hollywood’s legendary hard rock sound and scene and are proven true rock legends, headlining massive arena tours and selling more than 15 million albums in the US alone. Ratt released their self-titled first album independently in 1983 and never looked back after that.
Their first major label release, Out of the Cellar proved a multi-platinum breakthrough and was subsequently followed by more platinum smashes including; Invasion of Your Privacy (1985), Dancin' Undercover (1986) and Reach for the Sky (1988).
By then the band had become mainstays on the radio with songs like the blockbuster anthem "Round and Round," “Wanted Man,” and “Lay it Down” and was touring the world over, spreading their infectious brand of Ratt ‘N’ Roll to the masses.
