Warrant are an American Hair Metal/Arena Rock band originally from Los Angeles. Formed in 1984, it took three or four years for the classic line-up featuring Jani Lane (lead vocals, main songwriter), Joey Allen (lead guitar), Erik Turner (rhythm guitar), Michael Nelson (bass guitar) and Steven Sweet (drums) to stabilise.

Establishing themselves as the number three band in the Hollywood rock scene behind Guns N' Roses and Poison, the band had their breakout hits with the multi-platinum album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich and the single "Heaven", which got to number two in the American charts (although it peaked behind Milli Vanilli, which is more or less the same as being the number one song) and reached their peak success with Cherry Pie and the eponymous hit single, an arena rock anthem that soon became their Signature Song.

However, changing trends in rock music served to undermine the band's career. Like a lot of hair bands, Warrant were displaced by the rise of Grunge, and after one last hit (the album Dog Eat Dog) their popularity declined. Since then, they've continued to perform and record either with or without bandleader Jani Lane, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011.


This band features examples of:

 Swingin' to the bass

In the back of my car!

Ain't got money!

Ain't got no gas!

But we'll get where

We're goin' if we

Swing real fast!

 Swingin' in there 'cause

She wanted me to feed her

So I mixed up the batter

And she licked the beater!

 Swingin' so hard

We forgot to lock the door!

In walks her daddy

Standin' six foot four!

He said you ain't gonna swing

With my daughter no more!

 Swingin' on the front porch!

Swingin' on the lawn!

Swingin' where we want

'Cause there ain't nobody home!
