The Poison Boxed Set Is 'Nothin’ But A Good Time'

Poison (CBS)

Long before Bret Michaels was making headlines with Miley Cyrus‘ mom, he was appearing in sequined tights and permed hair as the charismatic frontman for Poison. The poster children for the Hair Metal age, Poison embodied everything that was great about 80′s rock ‘n roll: the excess, the groupies, and the HAIR! Now the group that brought us such classics as “Unskinny Bop” and “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” has been memorialized in an extensive boxed set named for another of their mega-hits: Nothin’ But A Good Time.

iTunes says the following of Poison: “In a decade fueled by party anthems and power ballads, Poison found a high amount of popularity, with only Bon Jovi and Def Leppard outselling them.” Indeed the 1980′s were when Poison formed and reached the pinnacle of rock stardom. From 1986 to 1990 they released their biggest albums, from their debut Look What The Cat Dragged In to their eight-time platinum mega-album Open Up And Say… Ahh!, to the one fans refer to as the “beginning of the end,” 1990′s Flesh & Blood. The boxed set pulls equally from from these three albums, including many live cuts like an incredible 2004 performance of their power ballad “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
