I thought this was gonna be about a mission to find Mr. Patrol.
Me too. Hoped that Beaneater had donned trench coat and fedora and begun sleuthing our serial killer's whereabouts.
Yeah that’s how I pictured it.
Never heard of Ratt.

You’re not missing much, unless you like hair metal. Which even I mostly don’t.

By the early 90s Ratt was fracturing. Their last classic line up single, Nobody Rides for Free, appeared on the Point Break soundtrack.

That’s a great one though I take exception to the notion that this is the “classic lineup” as Robin Crosby was out of the band at this point.
I really don’t know much about Ratt.
But I have so many questions...
I’m the resident IMCT RATT expert so feel free to ask away.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I am researching Ratt tonight after seeing this advertisement:

This commercial just came up and the Boss looked at me sideways for enjoying the song. C'mon, it's fun and stupid.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

If there were a land ruled by an amicable and a bicameral legislature of 80s metalheads & hip hoppers please get me there pronto.

I am just fine with the Aerosmith and Run DMC version of Walk This Way as a National Anthem.

Big plus for exposing hip hop to rock audiences, but big negative for resuscitating Aerosmith's career.

I assume you've had the same batshit weather we've had. Three days ago, with the humidex it was close to 40C; today it was 4C when I got up and has been furnace weather all day. Crazy nuts.
