Look What the Cat Dragged In is the debut studio album by American glam metal band Poison, released on August 2, 1986 through Enigma Records. Though not a success at first, it steadily built momentum and peaked at on the US Billboard 200 on 23 May 1987. The album spawned four singles, three of them charting successfully: "Talk Dirty to Me", "I Want Action", "I Won't Forget You" and "Cry Tough". It serves as a prime example of the glam metal genre both musically and image-wise.
I'm late for work on Monday and my boss is bitchin' Can't get out of bed 'cause my head's still spinnin' My hair's in a rat's nest, I look like hell Half alive or half dead, I just can't tell. Oh my god, look what the cat dragged in Livin' my life, sin after sin Night rolls up and I do it again Oh my god, look what the cat dragged in. Cat dragged in Cat dragged in Cat dragged in Cat dragged in, out, in Look what the cat dragged. Cat dragged in Cat dragged in Cat dragged in Cat dragged in. Cat dragged in Cat dragged in Cat dragged in Cat dragged.

Listen free to Poison – Look What the Cat Dragged In (Cry Tough, I Want Action and more). Though not a success at first, the album steadily built momentum and peaked at on the charts on May 23, 1987. The album spawned four singles, three of them charting successfully: "Talk Dirty to Me", "I Want Action", "I Won't Forget You", and "Cry Tough".
But with their 1986 debut Look What the Cat Dragged In, they gave it an extra coat of lip gloss. The group got its start in the late '70s, when singer Bret Michaels joined with his longtime friend, drummer Richard Ream - aka Rikki Rockett - to start the first in a series of local bands in their Mechanicsburg, Penn. The duo eventually hooked up with bassist Bobby Kuykendall - aka Bobby Dall - and guitarist Matt Smith to form a four-piece they initially called Paris. Released May 23, 1986, the album struggled at first to find commercial traction. As Rockett acknowledged in his RAW interview, Poison came up after an early wave of like-minded bands, and Cat's release arrived during a relative lull in the late-'80s glam metal boom - a problem compounded by Enigma's indie status. The record's first single, "Cry Tough," failed to chart, and at first, it looked destined to be a dud.
