The record was described by guitarist Rick Steier as a "concept album"
that follows a rags-to-riches-to-rags storyline concerning fame, fortune Warrant chronology
and the examination of one's value system once the spotlight fades [1]. The Best Of Belly to Belly Vol. Warrant Live 86-97
Warrant 1 (1997)
"Feels Good" was about the band "starting from scratch". Vocalist Jani (1996) (1996)
Lane explained that the song dealt with being free from major label
pressure to "follow up this big hit or that hit". The band was given complete control to do whatever seemed appropriate to the
members, without having to try and please others.

"Letter to a Friend" was an idea Lane had about how relationships should end; the parties agree that they don't gel, but that
they can go their separate ways without animosity. Lane admits that this was "wishful thinking", since all of his failed
relationships have ended on bad terms.

"AYM" (Angry Young Man) was recorded in one take. During a flight to Japan for shows at a United States Naval Base,
guitarist Rick Steier suggested to Lane that he put a twist in the lyrics for the then incomplete song. When the band got back
into the studio, Lane re-wrote the lyrics as a "tongue-in-cheek satirical look at the alternative thing".

"All For You" features a duet with the girlfriend of the part owner of the studio in which the record was produced. Lane
thought her vocals sounded "a little like Stevie Nicks" and asked her to perform on the album.

Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich is the first album by American glam  Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich
metal band Warrant.

The record, which was released in 1989, was highly successful, spawning 
the hit singles "Heaven" (#2, 1989), "Down Boys" (#27, 1989) and 
"Sometimes She Cries" (#20, 1990).

The song "Down Boys" is not the Cars song of the same name.

Warrant chronology
The album's sound is typical of the Sunset Strip glam metal scene of the  Dirty Rotten Filthy Cherry Pie
1980s, featuring heavy guitars and melodic, catchy choruses. Stinking Rich (1990)
(1989)
As mentioned above, the song "Down Boys" is not the Cars song of the 
same name. However, aside from borrowing the title of the aforementioned Cars song, musically it is a pretty direct lift from 
another Cars song, "Bye Bye Love".

Production and marketing


The album was released amidst some controversy. It was widely rumoured that guitarists Erik Turner and Joey Allen had not 
played a note on the album and that all guitar work had been performed by ex Streets guitarist and session musician Mike 
Slamer;[1]. While the rumour was never been verified, Slamer's wife confirmed in 1998 that her husband played guitar on the 
record.[2]
During the recording of the album, vocalist Jani Lane walked in on his best friend in bed with his girlfriend, leading to his 
nervous breakdown. The album was recorded without Lane's vocals, and its release was delayed by several months while Lane 
recovered. These events would later be recounted in the single "I Saw Red" on the band's following album, Cherry Pie. [3]
The record was produced and engineered by Beau Hill, who also contributed keyboards and backing vocals. It was recorded at 
The Enterprise in Burbank, California.

Songs
The album's themes, which include materialism ("32 Pennies", "D.R.F.S.R"), sex ("Down Boys", "So Damn Pretty", "Cold 
Sweat"), heartbreak ("Heaven") and loneliness ("Sometimes She Cries"), would be echoed on later Warrant releases.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirty_Rotten_Filthy_Stinking_Rich
The smash hit "Heaven" took Warrant's record company by surprise. Indeed, once the widespread appeal of the song became 
apparent, the band were instructed to re-record the track to lend it a "bigger radio sound". The first 250,000 copies of the 
record featured the original version while later pressings featured a new version. [4] "Heaven" had previously been recorded by 
Jani Lane and Steven Sweet's old band Plain Jane.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ultraphobic is the fourth studio album by American glam metal band Ultraphobic
Warrant. Released on March 7, 1995 on CMC International, after the

the darker path first explored on the band's previous record, Dog Eat Dog. Label CMC International
It is vaguely similar to Danger Danger's Dawn, which was also released in Producer Beau Hill
1995. In particular, the record represented an experimentation with the Professional reviews
grunge sounds which had by this time become popular, and which,  All Music Guide (3/5)link

Production and marketing


Warrant began recording Ultraphobic in November 1994 with producer Beau Hill. The band supported the release of the
record with a national tour beginning in Dallas, Texas.

Lyrics
Lyrically, the album appears to have been heavily influenced by the painful divorce which vocalist Jani Lane endured during
the record's production.
