Out of the Cellar is the breakthrough album by glam metal band Ratt, released in 1984 (see 1984 in music). Produced by Beau Hill, the album features their best-known hit, "Round and Round", and other hits such classics as "Wanted Man", "Back for More", "I'm Insane", and "Lack of Communication". Out of the Cellar was a spectacularly popular success, though critical praise was initially limited. Amongst pop music intelligentsia, the band's unique brand of pop sensibility was written off of pedestrian and proletarian. Regardless of this, fans bought up the new sound Ratt was helping to usher out of the streets of Los Angeles and into the living rooms of Middle America. Not only is the album now considered to be the best material Ratt would ever produce, but it is also considered an exceptional highlight in popular music during the 1980's and a necessary glam metal classic.

Album title

Many fans believe the album's title might resemble a loose connection to Aerosmith song "Rats in the Cellar" on their 1976 album Rocks. Because of this it had fueled speculation over the years that Aerosmith was Ratt's primary influence.[citation needed] Aerosmith is a prominent American rock band, regarded by some as Americas Greatest Rock and Roll Band. [1][2] Although they are known as the bad boys from Boston, none of the bands members are actually from that city. ... Rocks is the fourth album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released in 1976 (see 1976 in music). ...


Another theory is predicated on the album being Ratt's major label debut. Since rats live in cellars and Ratt was an "underground" band until 1984, the album title is believed by many to be a stirringly inspirational metaphor for the band at that particular point in its career.[citation needed] Species 50 species; see text *Several subfamilies of Muroids include animals called rats. ...


To date, band members have remained mum on the matter, preferring to leave it open for interpretation by their fans.[citation needed]
