Default Re: BEST HAIR METAL BAND TOURNAMANT: Ratt (#6) vs Whitesnake (#11)

Pretty much making an "Inverted" opinion here from the other thread this
week in the voting. These are two bands I DIDN'T Have listed on my
Nominations list of Top 10 bands. Reason for that was that I didn't really
like either of these bands.

Ratt came along early in the 80s, and got a strong following of fans right
away behind the success of the song and video ROUND and ROUND. It was
a song I personally could take or leave. I didn't find it as AWESOME as
most of the country did, but I didn't change the channel, turn the sound
down (or off) when it played (and the played it a lot). They were one of
the first "Darlings" of MTV simply because of the mass following they built
off of that one song. Over the course of their short career (as a headline
act) they had a few other "hits" but never equaled the success of Out
of the Cellar / and the song Round and Round. ... they were basically
a One Hit Wonder.

Whitesnake ........ They were cut in the mold of Poison (In my opinion).
Their songs were catchy, but their appeal was more along the lines of
an act "looking for acceptance" in the Hair Metal Band Niche. Sad too,
because Coverdale came from some good R&B bloodlines having fronted
a short time, for a watered down version of Deep Purple and actually had
a voice that he could have used a lot better in a good solid AND SERIOUS
Rock band. However, he choose to latch on to the declining Glitzy Hair
Metal genre, and followed the Instructions for assembling a Hair Metal
Band. IMO, the most unique thing about Whitesnake was David Coverdale's
blueprint for making them stand out........When their first hit was made
into a video, he picked the best part of that whole thing that got them
attention (Tawny Kitaen), Started dating (and eventually married her),
and kept featuring her in their videos. Other than that, they were not
that impressive (to me).

In this matchup, I'm just going to flip a coin.......................................
.................................................. ...............................................
.................................................. ................................................
.................................................. ................................................

It was tails. RATT gets my vote here

Like Spurt, not a fan of either. I'll go with Whitesnake because they weren't a one hit wonder.

Neither band was great. However, longevity bonus for Whitesnake along with Coverdale marrying Tawny Kitaen.

I really think that was the main requirement for a Hair Metal band in the
late 80s. I think the management / agents of those bands along with the
record producers were looking for male centerfolds that could make
teenybopper chicks screem and cream.

Still of the Night is the biggest Zepplin rip-off since Kingdom Come.

David Coverdale of Whitesnake is the biggest Robert Plant rip-off artist on the planet. That being said "Still of the Night" was f'n huge when it released, and the guitar soloist was Adrian Vandenberg, one of my favorite guitar players of the time. I bought the cassette, wore it out. Tawny pioneered the term 'Video Vixen' role in that video, and subsequent releases (Here I go Again). Whitesnake's best tracks weren't the one's played into the ground on the radio. Also, I think most every album released under Whitesnake/Coverdale had a different musician lineup.

Fav Whitesnake tune..


I absolutely loved Ratt, musically speaking. Their visual appeal, yeck! The lead singer, lead guitarist, and drummer were all cool to me. The bass player danced around like a jackass, was ridiculed by his peers for doing so, and the 'whacked out on coke' rhythm guitar player was a sad story. He was originally the lead guitar player until Warren Demartini was added to the lineup and took over that role.

Love this Ratt tune.. See if you notice some crazy cocaine eyes in this one.



Ratt gets my vote.
