Favorite Poison Song – Readers Poll

Mary Ouellette,

Poison are responsible for some of the biggest rock hits from the late ’80s and early ’90s, and our Readers Poll looks back on their catalog and asks you to tell us your favorite Poison track.

We’re looking back on the band’s history as frontman Bret Michaels celebrates his 50th birthday (March 15). The vocalist has been front and center for all of their greatest moments, beginning with the band’s ‘Look What the Cat Dragged In’ album. That disc gave us such standouts as their breakout song ‘Talk Dirty to Me,’ the anthemic rocker ‘I Want Action’ and the rock ballad ‘I Won’t Forget You.’

Their sophomore set, ‘Open Up and Say … Ahh!,’ had the rocker ‘Nothin’ But a Good Time,’ the follow-up hit ‘Fallen Angel’ and one of the most played rock ballads in music history, ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn.’

‘Flesh and Blood’ gave us such standouts as the funky ‘Unskinny Bop,’ the stripped-down ‘Something to Believe In’ and the upbeat ‘Ride the Wind.’ We finish out our list of standout Poison tracks adding in their 1993 single ‘Stand’ off the ‘Native Tongue’ album.

There you have it — 10 big Poison hits. Let us know your favorite in the Readers Poll below:
