Episode 21: Danger Danger
Danger Danger is another shining example of my belief that every single '80s rock, glam and metal band had an amazing first album. With a sound that combined elements of Poison, Warrant and Bon Jovi, Danger Danger's self-titled first album peaked at number 88 on the billboard 200 in 1989 and spawned two well-known singles, Naught Naughty and Bang Bang.
But by the time their second album Screw it was released in 1991, Danger Danger had pretty much disappeared in the United Stated. they were very popular in japan however, and the album hit number 67 on the Japanese charts. They still remain popular in Japan today despite a slew of lineup changes, and their 2009 album Revolve charted over there as well.
Tonight we look at five videos from Danger Danger's first two albums.
