Good point! until recently I never realized just how many catagories of metal there are. There's metal out there for all types. And just because some people refuse to acknowledge that does't make it any less so. To each his own. I find I fit into many catagories myself.
sometimes I feel angry thus heavy, headbanging applies. other times I need something softer and melodic. so kick back, relax and let the metal sooth you!

well, there are soooo many branches of "metal"... they are not heavy DUH NAH NAH!! metal... but they are like kinda glam metal, not just "glam" but glam metal.... like soft metal or light metal, very melodic, but not soft metal like slow riffs, but just groovey metal, hahaha groovey...

Yes, call it Hair or Glam or LA Metal, but it´s Heavy Metal band, just another branch of the tree.

In Japan, we called Ratt belongs to "L.A. METAL". Stephen Pearcy loves JP. He covers JP songs such as YGATC, Exciter etc.
I became a Ratt fan before becoming a JP fan. When Stephen sings  "Drive Me Crazy ~ OH YEAH~", he minds me of Rob. I'm aware that Rob is the supreme singer.
"Body Talk" is a very fast metal song. Among L.A. METAL bands, that song was one of the fastest.
This link below is my meet & greet w/ Ratt when I was a teenager. This video was edited by a trial stuff & annoying red letters keep popping up but it shows how Ratt guys are nice dudes!  This meeting led me to go deep in metal world.  Since late Robbin's BDay is Aug. 4th, pls remember his yet happy days.

Hi Erik,
thanks for the information. Sometimes is difficult
for me to wrote in english. I will write and think in German.
Sometimes I don't find the right words or have problems
with the grammatic. Sometimes I don't know the meaning
of words in english or otherwise. OK, Ratt is not pussy metal
or pussy rock. I like the first two albums. I like the sound
and the guitar work (Rhythm and Lead). What I mean with
"Pussy Metal" (in German: Fotzen-Metal") or "Pussy Rock"
("Fotzen Rock")? Here in Germany more Girls go to the
concerts of Bands like Ratt or Bon Jovi. Our girlfriends in this time too. We must to defence our girlfriends for other girls/womans (they want to have us) and for kiddy boys they want to have our girls. So we beginn to call of Pussy Rock. Bye. Michael

           Ratt is sexy heavy metal,and as Phantom puts it,......Pussy metal. I would say to Phantom at this time to call them a hair band or 80's metal rather than Pussy metal because pussy rock over here in whacked America would mean a weak and whimpy excuse for a band such as Billy Squire or John Cougar or the Police. Anyone i see talking about how they went to a police concert and how they rocked is full of shit.They sucked is more like it and the only reason they made it big on the song roxxanne was because Eddie Murphy made the whole world laugh while it was playing.That is the only reason because that song sucks and is a technical disaster within the rights of quality.Ratt, on the other hand, was an awesome live band who's guitar player was a solid foundation of technical quality.Don't even start smashing Ratt because i'll put you in your place....Erik the Red.

Hmh, what should I say? I don't said Ratt was no metal
for the first two albums. I like all the numbers from this
I like to lick pussy too. So I must like pussy metal? No!

Y'wanna know what's funny though?     In that first listing of bands...all of them OPENED for Priest. that second listing...Ratt & L.A.Guns were two of four bands that opened for Priest as recently as 2002.

Or call it "Pussy Metal".
[Phantom A6] Monday, July 28, 2008 7:46:11 AM 
"Out of the cellar" & "Invasion of your privacy".
Yes. That's Heavy Metal. But only the music. The Outfits
and later releases tell another story.
Harder stuff of "Pussy Rock".

This is just my opinion but Ratt was not a Heavy Metal band --hard rock for sure but not heavy metal.
[malice9203] Sunday, July 13, 2008 3:59:32 PM 
RATT IS A METAL BAND. Whether or not YOU personally like that sub genre of (the Rock sub genre) METAL. IT IS A PART OF METAL. DEAL WITH IT!!!!!

The answer is...................Simply NO!............... Not metal just 80's glam!
[mgdman] Saturday, July 12, 2008 3:34:08 PM 
Don't get me wrong, I like some of the music that came from those bands but I can't call them Heavy Metal. My views on heavy are JP / Pantera / Slayer / Megadeath / Madien. Just my opinion but it was more glam and hair than heavy.
