Friday 5: RATTurday Night’s All Right



Happy Friday, MetalSucks reader! Welcome back to MetalSucks Friday 5, our new series that appears every Friday (duh) on MetalSucks (duhh) and involves the list of five (duhhh).

Here’s how it works: A list of the five best/worst/weirdest/whatever somethings is posted by one of your beloved MetalSucks contributors (or by one of our buds like you?). Then our cherished readers check it out, have a chuckle, then chime in with a list of the same. No sweat, just whatever springs to mind, k? (Just like that movie about those losers working at a Chicago record store!) After all, it’s Friday — the day dedicated by the gods to mindless, fun time-wasting. This week, let’s make plans for a very special Saturday!



The Five Best Ratt Songs For Your #RATTurday That Aren’t “Round And Round”


Leyla Ford, MetalSucks contributor


1. “Scene Of The Crime”
from Out Of The Cellar (1984)

This one is weirdly engaging because it sounds like two different songs at the same time. Plus, cold-blooded bitches rule.


2. “Way Cool Jr.”
from Reach For The Sky (1988)

I love hair metal that gets all dirty bluesy. Sure, Cinderella are the kings of that, but “Way Cool Jr.” is damn good.


3. “Shame Shame Shame”
from Detonator (1990)

What — you wouldn’t trust singer Stephen Pearcy to pilot a zeppelin?


4. “What’s It Gonna Be”
from Reach For The Sky (1988)

Here’s a phrase that rarely applies to Ratt: unexpectedly sweet. 


5. “Between The Eyes”
from Invasion Of Your Privacy (1985)

The intro is so good that they recycled it for “7th Avenue” a year later. To be fair, it is a good intro.


Your turn! Have an awesome wknd!
