Why is RATT even being discussed in the Judas Priest website?

No one is making the argument that Ratt is NOT Metal, just that they are NOT HEAVY METAL.  Let me see, Megadeth, Slayer, Priest, Maiden, Ratt, and Pantera; which band don't belong?

Ratt, Motley, Bon Jovi, Cinderella, Priest, and LA Guns; which band don't belong?

Good call Guido.  There was some good stuff happening out here.  Not all the bands were bullshit.

Ooooo...Please put a period, semi-colon or something between Ratt, Motley / Faster Pussycat and Warrant. Sidestepping the question of Ratt being "metal" or not (hey, they appear in my Big book of Heavy Metal), the first two are in a different category from the other bunch of ass-clowns. Bleah!!!!

I think some of the music was kind of "heavy" in a certain way, but the lyrics were what was mainly responsible for taking it in another direction.

No Not Heavy Metal I agree with a few posts on Hair metal. A form of metal but i can't agree to them being called Heavy. Nor is the L.A. bands of that time, Motley, Faster Pussy, Warrant and the likes

Not heavy metal no, Hair Metal yes.

they arent heavy metal, but they did start out heavier, before round and round.

I'll givem a metal credit, their guitarist was actually very good ( to bad he passed away ). If they  woulda been a few years after the hair age they might have lasted a couple more Lp's.

Give me the the name of just 1 HEAVY METAL song that Ratt produced.
They ARE a form of Metal, just NOT Heavy Metal (imho).
I do agree with everything you wrote, and ALL the band's you mentioned (and a whole lot more ie Slaughter, Trixter, and Tesla) ARE Metal.  I just don't think they can be classified as Heavy Metal.

One stupid song doth not fuck with a band's belonging to a particular genre.  Most of the Turbo album isn't heavy metal, but to the average Priest fan, it's still heavy metal b/c it's Judas Priest.

Round Round and Round? not really!

Hair Metal...YES

Heavy Metal...NO NO NO

I think they have the typical 80's metal sound.  Even though some people wouldn't agree with me on this, I think a lot of hair/glam bands from the 80's have what can be described as a 'metal' sound.  Ratt is one of those bands.  You can also say the same about Dokken, Motley Crue, Saigon Kick, WASP, and to a small extent, certain other pretty boy outfits like Warrant (go listen to Dog Eat Dog), White Lion, and Faster Pussycat and Flotsam & Jetsam.
