Ryan Adams Covers Ratt!

1/19/12

Yes, I want my MTV!

Yes, I want hair metal to come back...no, really...I do.  We can write about the hipstery hipster music but I'm all up for Dokken, Ratt, Poison, Priest, Europe, GNR, Extreme, Whitensnake...fuck...even Winger for christs sake.  That was a golden era of fun rock n roll, outrageousness, and also the musicality of guitar gods.

Which is why it's a real treat to hear Ryan Adams cover of Ratt's "Round and Round."

Why?

Because you can bet your ass Ryan probably has Ratt's classic "Out of the Cellar" album (cover model Tawny Kitaen, later to grace nearly all Whitensake videos) in his album collection too.  In case for any one under 20 tuning in... album collections and itunes collections were things we referred to pre Spotify.

And of course the classic original Ratt.  Damn, I always loved Warren DeMartini's cutting guitar riffs and leads. And Stephen Pearcy's mysterious slutty layered vocals.

Don't be scared.  It's OK... take off your hipster shirt and have some fun.  Get your dose of hair metal... TODAY.

Here's a link to Ratt's "Out of the Cellar" on Spotify.

Out on the streets, that's where we'll meet
You make the night, I always cross the line
Tightened our belts, abuse ourselves
Get in our way, we'll put you on your shelf
Another day, some other way
We're gonna go, but then we'll see you again
I've had enough, we've had enough
Cold in vain, she said

(Pre-chorus)

I knew right from the beginning
That you would end up winnin'
I knew right from the start
You'd put an arrow through my heart

(Chorus)

Round and round
With love we'll find a way just give it time
Round and round
What comes around goes around
I'll tell you why

Dig

Lookin' at you, lookin' at me
The way you move, you know it's easy to see
The neon light's on me tonight
I've got a way, we're gonna prove it tonight
Like Romeo to Juliet
Time and time, I'm gonna make you mine
I've had enough, we've had enough
It's all the same, she said

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

Yeah!

Solo

Out on the streets, that's where we'll meet
You make the night, I always cross the line
Tightened our belts, abuse ourselves
Get in our way, we'll put you on your shelf

(Chorus)

Round and round
With love we'll find a way just give it time, time, time, time
Round and round
What comes around goes around
I'll tell you why, why, why, why
Round and round
