Poison is often scoffed at by music hipsters who listen to the Libertines and hate the fact that Death Cab made a major label album. But in the 1980's, Poison was constantly at the top of the charts and was one of the most popular bands of the time, on par with (look it up) Guns N Roses. The band's sleazy rock sound became synonymous with the Sunset Strip. Because the band wore makeup, they are frowned upon today, but mostly by people who have never heard their music. "Talk Dirty To Me" off their first album, Look What The Cat Dragged In, is a prime example of why Poison was so successful and was a great rock band.

Awesome 80's hair metal. If you like kiss, GnR, Motley Crue, Ratt, or Judas Priest, you will love these guys. They wrote such clasics as: I want Action, Unskinny Bop, and Every Rose has it's Thorn.
Dude, you have got to listen to poison.

A young person of the female sex between the ages of 14 and 17 who is uncomfortably attractive to members of both sexes several years older, and hangs out in groups dominated by people several years her senior. Often the cause of psuedo-pedophilic crisis in the unfortunate victims who spend too much time with the Poison. Negative connotation in that going to far means jail time, but otherwise fun for all!
Joe: I'm Gonna get me some Poison tonight man.
Juan: Right. Luck with that.

Only the most original band from the greatest era of music, 80's glam metal! They wore make-up during their performances only 7 years after Kiss did it. They were musical geniuses, borrowing licks from other bands in different genres and playing them louder, like they should have been played in the first place! Let's not forget Bret Michaels, only the most devoted, artistically enlightened frontman with the largest range ever heard by human ears. And his lyrics!? Who could forget such beautifully crafted rhymes, like:
"At the drive-in
In the old man's Ford
behind the bushes
until I'm screamin' for more"
and
"Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its, yeah, it does"
Poetic composition in the English language has never been the same.
Trent: "Why should I listen to Poison?

Barry: "Well, they are hands down the best band with a former vocalist currently starring in multiple reality TV shows."
