1987 marks the debut of this multi-platinum smash from Harrisburg, Pennsylvanias hard rock sons Poison. Fronted by the driving lead vocals of Bret Michaels, the multi-talented Bobby Dahl on bass, the power drums of Rikki Rockett and the guitar chops of C.C. DeVille, Look What The Cat Dragged In proved to be worth its weight in gold and platinum sales.
Featuring three mega hits with ‘I Want Action,’ ‘Talk Dirty To Me’ and the power ballad ‘I Wont Forget You,’ this album is known as one of the first hard rock/metal albums to bridge the old school with the new and is still considered one of the strongest hard rock debuts ever.
Poison’s debut album took its cues from the big, anthemic pop hooks of Def Leppard and the rebellious street-tough posturing of Mötley Crüe, as well as a raunchy, adolescent obsession with sex. But Poison really carved out their niche as the ultimate glam metal band, using tight-assed boogie and over-the-top visual extravagance – costumes, makeup, teased hair, and so on – to an even greater extent than most of their contemporaries. It was derivative and formulaic, to be sure, but Poison wholeheartedly embraced that formula from the beginning with a conviction often missing in their peers, and it’s that ridiculous, good-time excess that keeps Look What the Cat Dragged In’s catchiest songs, especially the party anthems ‘Talk Dirty to Me’ and ‘I Want Action,’ just as much fun today, if not more so.
