About Warrant

American rock band Warrant is widely recognized for its signature style of rock music that’s very catchy and yet very melodic. Warrant first entered the national spotlight in 1989 with their debut album “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich,” which produced radio and MTV chart topping songs “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven.” Warrant’s sophomore album, “Cherry Pie,” spawned the MTV & radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red,” all of which reached the top 10 in the United States and went on to sell three million copies. Warrant has most recently been headlining festivals, casinos and fairs all over the country in support of their latest album release, “Louder Harder Faster.”
