Ok peeps let's do this again.

Bryan Adams vs. Warrant. Could someone confirm their chart placings? One or both might have gone to #1.

It's tough, but I'm choosing Bryan Adams, IMO one of the best power ballads ever written. Love to video too.

Warrant's Heaven didn't go to number one, but I believe it was their biggest hit. Once again, my vote: Warrant's Heaven!!! Had to love that white leather, LOL.

Gotta go with Warrant. Is Jani Lane still a trainwreck?

Warrant wins. I saw them live with Motley Crue back in the day. Awesome:

Warrant ftw but the Adams song was pretty good too.

When I saw Warrant a few years ago they were fronted by former Black N Blue lead vocalist Jamie St. James

I was searching Warrant songs on Itunes, and there were a couple I hadn't heard of, so I listened to them, and I was so very surprised (I guess I knew but forgot) that Jani Lane was not the singer!!!! I had the biggest crush on him when I was a teenager, LOL.

Motley, the last I saw of him was on Celeb Fit Club 2 and he was pretty much a trainwreck. I haven't seen nor heard anything since then...

Last I heard 'round the ol' grapevine here in Hollyweird was that Jani was trying to get Warrant back together (whatev!) and yeah, he is still a trainwreck. I am actually shocked he is still alive.

As for the Heaven v Heaven, I have to go with Bryan Adams....it's actually one of my fave songs...very sweet and sort of poignant for peeps like us who like to live in the past. (Oh yeah, we do, don't deny it! LOL)

Jani Lane absolutely hates the song "Cherry Pie" he's basically said he'd rather shoot himself in the head than to ever play that song again. I hate that song too. Warrant should be more known for so many other songs over that one.

Cherry Pie was one of the few Warrant songs that I never really liked. And almost anytime you find any kind of hairband compilation, that song always seems to pop up.

I agree with both of you on "Cherry Pie." That song is on the bottom of the list of Warrant songs.
