Extreme is an American hard rock band consisting of singer/guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt, singer/lyricist Gary Cherone, bassist/singer Pat Badger and drummer Kevin Figueiredo. The band first formed in 1985 in Boston with then drummer Paul Geary (who later got replaced by drummer Mike Mangini) until the band decided to go on an indefinite hiatus that ended up lasting more than 10 years (1996 - 2006). The band's influences range from the progressive hard rock and elaborate multi-vocals parts of Queen, the energy of Aerosmith and Van Halen, as well as Beatlesque pop and a Led Zeppelin organic feeling.

Consequently, Extreme's music is never easy to classify; it's not just heavy metal, hard rock, or pop— their albums cover all of that territory with a sweeping ambition and a social consciousness to match. Although a mostly hard rock band, it was the Everly Brothers-style acoustic ballad, "More Than Words," that crossed them over into the mainstream — it hit number one and the follow-up single, the acoustic-based pop rocker "Hole Hearted," hit number four.

They released two albums in the hey day of glam metal but received diminished attention from the mainstream following the grunge explosion following the release of Nirvana's "Nevermind" in 1991. Despite this, they released two more albums before the hiatus. Vocalist Gary Cherone went on to join Van Halen in 1997, replacing Sammy Hagar, and the group released "Van Halen III." He left Van Halen soon after, in 1999 and formed Tribe of Judah, with fellow Extreme members Pat Badger and Mike Mangini.

The group reformed in 2004 for a short tour of Boston and Japan as well as reforming in 2006 for a small U.S. tour. On November 26th 2007, it was announced that Extreme would come back in 2008 with a new album & tour. Read m  more

There is more than one artist with this name :

1) Hard rock band from Los Angeles, California.
2) Speed Metal band from Düsseldorf, Germany.

1) Warrant are rockers from Los Angeles, California which enjoyed its greatest success in 1990 with the single and album "Cherry Pie".

It is the music created during the 1980s and early 1990s which remains the band's signature. The band's brand of hard rock was loud, cheesy, sex-obsessed, and usually delivered with a mischievous sense of humour. The generally lighthearted band became known for raucous party anthems filled with thinly-veiled references to sex ("Down Boys", "Cherry Pie") but also for sentimental, melodic ballads ("Heaven", "Sometimes She Cries", "I Saw Red").

In January 1988 Warrant signed a contract with Columbia Records, and released their debut album "Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich".

The band's second record, Cherry Pie, was released in March 1990, and spawned the hits "Cherry Pie", "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "I Saw Red". It reached the Top Ten in the United States, and went on to sell 3 million copies.

In 1992, Warrant released "Dog Eat Dog". The record, an attempt by the band to evolve in the face of changing musical trends, received critical acclaim but achieved only moderate commercial success.

After this, the band would begin a long string of member changes, including even singer Jani Lane leaving the band briefly.

He would then return to release "Ultraphobic" in 1995, and "Belly to Belly, Vol. 1" in 1998. These were released on a smaller label, as well as featured a new darker sound. Neither album would remotely come close to the success of the earlier albums. A live album, an album of re-recorded classic tracks, as well as an all-covers disc "Under the Influence" followed these.

Jani Lane would once again leave the band in 2004. Ironically, all the other original members would return to the band the same year. Black 'N' Blue singer Jaime St. James would take over as singer.

In 2006, Warrant released "Born Again", the first album to not have Jani Lane on vocals.

On March 4, 2008, Warrant announced that Jani Lane had returned to the band. Lane toured with the band through 2008, but left the band again soon after.

On August 11, 2011, former Warrant singer Jani Lane was found dead in a hotel room in Woodland Hills, California. He was 47.


2) Warrant is an 80s Heavy / Speed Metal band from Germany.
Warrant is a German speed metal band that formed in 1983 in Düsseldorf. The band's original line-up was Jörg Juraschek (vocals and bass), Thomas Klein (guitar) and Lothar Wieners (drums). Oliver May (guitar) followed shortly afterwards.

In early 1985, Warrant released the EP First Strike and the LP The Enforcer. They went on tour with Warlock later that year. The band soon split up, with Juraschek and May going on to form Punchline and Wieners forming Monroxe.

In 1999, the band (with Jörg and Oliver) briefly reunited and recorded two new songs. Both of Warrant's albums were reissued on a single disc in 2000, with the new tracks included.

In 2010, First Strike and The Enforcer are being re-released with a new cover, layout and including some live recordings. They will also be performing several live shows with Necronomicon and a few festivals.

In August 2010 they signed a deal with PSR and are currently working on a new album, which is expected in 2011.  more 
FireHouse is an American hard rock band formed in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1989. The band reached stardom during the early 1990s with hit singles like "Don't Treat Me Bad" and "All She Wrote", as well as their signature ballads "I Live My Life for You", "Love of a Lifetime", and "When I Look Into Your Eyes". At the 1992 American Music Awards, FireHouse won the award for Favorite Heavy Metal/Hard Rock New Artist; chosen over Nirvana and Alice in Chains.  more 
Autograph was an American glam metal band from Los Angeles, California. Initially active from 1983 to 1989, the band was reformed by their founder Steve Plunkett for a single album, released in 2003, and has been inactive since. They're best known for their 1984 hit "Turn up the Radio", with a music video that was a regular staple on MTV.

They formed in 1983 with vocalist/guitarist Steve Plunkett joining up with guitarist Steve Lynch, bassist Randy Rand, keyboard player Steven Isham, and drummer Keni Richards. The band seemed to have it all: a fine commercial hard rock debut in 1984's 'Sign in Please', good looks, and great hair. Still, it wasn't enough, and by the time they released the following year's disappointing 'That's the Stuff' the 80s rock audience had moved on. Their 1987 single "Loud and Clear" got a bit of attention, thanks to Ozzy Osbourne's cameo in their video, but it all arrived too late to save the band, which split up in 1989. A posthumous collection of outtakes called 'Missing Pieces' was released about a decade later.

Despite scoring a massive MTV hit with their very first single, "Turn Up the Radio", which continues to be a classic rock staple, Autograph's songs got lost in the shuffle of the thriving Los Angeles pop metal scene. Still, interest in their first big hit continues, with the song featured in a variety of places such as the popular 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City' video game. In 2003, Steve Plunkett put out a reunion album of sorts: an all-new material album entitled 'Buzz', which retained their 80s sound. They've also released the odds and sods album 'More Missing Pieces'. Read m  more 
1. Kix
Originally calling themselves The Shooze and eventually changing their name to the Generators (and, for a couple of weeks, The Baltimore Cocks) before ultimately settling on KIX, Baltimore's favorite hard rock band garnered quite a reputation for themselves as one of Maryland's most exciting live cover bands prior to signing to Atlantic Records in 1981. Led by frontman Steve Whiteman and creative mastermind/bassist Donnie Purnell, the band is rounded out by drummer Jimmy Chalfant and guitarists Ronnie Younkins (nicknamed 10/10) and Brian "Damage" Forsythe. Hitting the club circuit six nights a week for three straight years resulted in the band cultivating a huge local fan base and led to a contract with the Time Warner affiliate. Releasing their self-titled debut in 1981, KIX featured live favorites like "Atomic Bombs," the glorious "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah," and "The Kid." To support the release, the quintet set out to hit every club up and down the East Coast.

Their 1983 follow-up, Cool Kids, showcased a slightly more commercial side of the band. Spearheaded by the single "Body Talk," rumors ran rampant that the song was written to appease the band's label, who, eager to capture some steam at radio, also forced the band into shooting a horrendous video for the song which featured the band commiserating with ladies in full-on workout garb. Other songs like "Restless Blood" and "Mighty Mouth" fared a little better.

Eager to get back in the studio, KIX partnered up with Ratt and future Warrant and Winger producer Beau Hill and released Midnite Dynamite -- their "self-proclaimed favorite record ever." The album featured a great single, "Cold Shower," and some other notable cuts like "Sex" and "Bang Bang (Balls of Fire)." Then a funny thing happened on the way to album number three. As the band got ready for a brief West Coast jaunt, the boys kept hearing some fishy stuff about another young, good looking frontman by the name of Brett Michaels. The big hoopla around town was that the young upstart was said to have stolen singer Steve Whiteman's stage act. Rumor became fact and here is why: prior to Poison relocating to Los Angeles from the Harrisburg PA area, the band - then known as 'Paris' had often come out to see KIX perform live. Now local heroes in their own right, it was clear that Michaels had more than borrowed a few stage moves from the charismatic KIX lead singer. Sadly, when KIX got the opportunity to open for Poison at L.A.'s Country Club, their worse fears materialized as they stood in stunned silence watching a younger, better looking, musically challenged Poison from the side of the stage. The band had not only stolen Whiteman's stage moves, they'd just about stolen their entire stage act from underneath them.

Weathered but not to be counted out, KIX returned to the studio with hard rock veteran Tom Werman to record what would become their one and only breakthrough record. The band's fourth effort, Blow My Fuse, was released in 1988 and would finally feature the monstrous hit the band had worked so hard for -- it would appear in the way of a ballad, the "Dream On" inspired "Don't Close Your Eyes." As the song raced up the charts, the band began to garner the recognition it had fought so long and so hard for. To the band's credit, other excellent cuts also permeated the release. First single and video "Cold Blood," "Blow My Fuse," "Red Lite, Green Lite, TNT," and "No Ring Around Rosie" all showcased the band doing what it does best.

KIX finally graduated to arenas, and for the next year and a half the band would open for heroes AC/DC and Aerosmith, as well as a slew of others including David Lee Roth, Ratt, and Britny Fox. KIX were on top of the world -- if only momentarily. Much larger problems were looming on the horizon. The old adage of "more money, more problems" had materialized itself as a stone around KIX' collective necks for years and years. The band's financial matters were now in a state of complete disarray. Now severely indebted to Atlantic Records, the band faced a painful wake up call when they realized that they hadn't made a penny off Blow My Fuse. To make matters even worse, the label had plans to shift KIX from their roster to the label's new imprint EastWest Records America. This proved to be disastrous move for the quintet as they now had to deal with a new regime to work their yet-to-be released fifth record.

By the time Hot Wire finally hit record stores in 1991, the musical climate had shifted dramatically. "Hair bands" were now a thing of the past. Grunge was all the rage, making a band like KIX a laughingstock. The new trend made it virtually impossible for KIX to garner the radio support necessary for them to prosper commercially. In hindsight, Hot Wire may have proven to be the band's best sounding record ever. Bolstered by a little MTV airplay, the album's first single "Girl Money" showcased everything that made KIX a first-rate bar band. With double-entendre verses in the vein of classic Bon Scott-era AC/DC, great musicianship, and a hearty sense of humor to boot, the track would have probably been huge in 1989. Selling just under 200,000 units, the album came and went and KIX returned to doing what it had done all along -- hitting the road. The band then toured the Orient and recorded a live record at the University of Maryland's Cole Field House in 1992. It would be released by Atlantic in 1993 under the uninventive moniker, KIX Live. The 12-track live album would finally fulfill the band's contractual obligation to the label. By the time KIX Live was released, founding member and guitarist Brain Forsythe had quit the band returning to the fold in 1994 in time to record Show Business, the band's ill-fated debut on CMC. Released in 1995, Show Business tanked and the band was history. After a three-year hiatus away from the music biz, Steve Whiteman re-merged in Baltimore as the singer for Funny Money, with Jimmy Chalfant to join in on drums in 2004.
