Ratt’s new album has gotten more than just the best of me; Axl agrees that Infestation is undeniable, and as for Anso DF, that dude came out of the womb with a premonition that in 2010 Ratt would release a fantastic comeback album. He’s been telling me this ever since he started writing for this here web rag!

The band just released a music video for the album’s lead single “Best of Me,” which our bro-bby Blotzers over at Noisecreep have premiered. Like Infestation as a whole, the video does a great job of bridging the old and the new. The concept is ’80s in feel, with two yunguns transported to a dream-like world of rock n’ roll, women and hard partying. Though the concept is an old one, like the songs on the album the execution and production techniques don’t make it feel dated. Says Bring Back Glam scribe Allyson B. Crawford:

The video also points to a bigger issue here: younger kids on the outside looking in, trying to be a part of the Ratt pack, and the overarching idea that infectious hooks can permeate all aspects of daily life.

Indeed… if you were too young to experience Ratt the first time now might be a good time to check ’em out. Get into Infestation and go backwards from there.
