Though Poison has always been regarded as the "even gayer version of Mötley Crüe" (OK, at least by me), the not-so-reformed hair-metalheads rock. No amount of spandex, makeup or platform shoes can erase the sexy little licks in "Talk Dirty To Me" or the blatant demands of "I Want Action." And just when it seems like the band members are going to rock all over your "Unskinny Bop," they'll take a break and show you their sensitive side — by making you sway along to "Something to Believe In" or the glorious tearjerker "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." If you're lucky, Poison might even bust out a cheeky version of "I Hate Every Bone In Your Body But Mine." That's some straight poetry. Recognize.
