About Warrant

WARRANT was founded in 1983 by Erik Turner and Jerry Dixon when they were just 19 and 16 years old, respectively. Four years later, they were joined by Jani Lane, Steven Sweet, and Joey Allen in 1987. This line-up would go on to land a recording contract with Columbia Records (Sony) and ruled the airwaves and MTV in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s. Over the course of their career, WARRANT has sold over 10 million albums worldwide, with the song “Cherry Pie” taking on a pop culture life of its own, being featured in countless movies, TV shows, and commercials. Landing in 1989 with all the subtlety of a meteorite, the Hollywood, CA based band quickly rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to multiplatinum selling, chart-topping levels of success. The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. This album produced the radio and MTV hits “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and “Heaven”, which became truly inescapable. Their sophomore album Cherry Pie was released in September 1990 and launched Warrant into the stratosphere. The album, which spawned the massive MTV & radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red,: went on to sell 3 million copies.
