Out of the Cellar by Ratt - 

Out of the Cellar is the debut studio album by heavy metal band Ratt. Released in 1984, it is currently certified as triple platinum

Produced by Beau HillOut of the Cellar features Ratt's best-known hit, "Round and Round". It also contains other singles that performed well on the charts, such as "Wanted Man", "Lack of Communication" and a re-recorded version of "Back for More". The latter song originally appeared on the Ratt EP. "In Your Direction" was a song that Pearcy wrote and had since Mickey Ratt; "I'm Insane" and "Scene of the Crime" were songs Crosby had co-written and performed with his pre-Ratt band, Mac Meda, featuring future Riverdogs vocalist Rob Lamothe. In 2008, "Round and Round" and "I'm Insane" were featured in The Wrestler.

Wanted Man was co-written by bassist Joey Cristofanilli. Cristofanilli briefly substituted for Juan Croucier, who was also a member of Dokken at the time.
 

The model on the album cover is Tawny Kitaen, better known for her appearances in Whitesnake music videos, and the same year's teen-aimed film Bachelor Party. As she was the long-time girlfriend to guitarist Robbin Crosby at that time, Kitaen also appeared in the "Back For More" music video.

ahhhh, the memories!  Although their stage presence sucked, I really liked this band!  One of my favorite bands of the 80's!
Out of the Cellar, Invasion of Your Privacy & Dancing Undercover and then the Greatest Hits album "Ratt & Roll" were definitely overplayed in my home, car and walkman. yes

Milton Berle, who you see in the Round and Round video was the uncle of the band's manager (Marshall Berle).  There were rumors, back then, that his nephew was one of the guitarist, but the fact of the matter was that it was the bands manager not one of the guitarists.
Great Album

Round & Round is the only song of theirs I've ever heard before, but it's a good one.

Summer of '84, on the boardwalk in Wildwood NJ, this song was a terrible earworm for me...of course, it was Round and Round...and every time I would get it out of my head, I'd pass a carousel.....and it would begin again
Good/Ok Album (Like a few songs)
