"Rare Cuts is a Danger Danger compilation album, released in 2003. Rare Cuts is a long awaited compilation of outtakes and original demos submitted by the band for their self titled debut album – or in other words, the demos that got them the deal with Sony Music. Considering the age of the tracks and their demo status, they sound surprisingly fresh. It's fun to hear tracks like Bang Bang and Feels Like Love in their original form, not to mention a few rare tracks like the party anthem Loving' A Girl Like You, the uptempo Hold On Maria, and the big moody ballad Temptation (covered by Y&T).
For a spell during the late '80s and early '90s, it seemed like almost every day there was a new hair metal band popping up on MTV, taking aim at joining the likes of Poison, Mötley Crüe, and Bon Jovi at the top of the mountain. Some (Skid Row, Winger, Slaughter, etc.) did manage to challenge the aforementioned groups, while bands like Danger Danger came oh so close before vanishing from view completely…
Danger Danger is the debut album of the band Danger Danger, released in June 1989. In 1989, Saraya guitarist Tony "Bruno" Rey joined briefly and played on part of their debut album, before returning to his previous band. Andy Timmons replaced him and played on the rest of their debut album, which was released in the same year. The album spawned two hits with “Naughty Naughty” and “Bang Bang,” with the former gaining a spot in MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball.
"Live and Nude" is the official live album by American melodic rock/glam metal band "Danger Danger" originally released in 2005. "Live and Nude" was actually recorded in London-England at the Underworld club during the band's 2003 European tour. The line up featured founders bassist Bruno Ravel and drummer Steve West along with established vocalist Paul Laine and newcomer Swedish guitarist Rob Marcello. "Live and Nude" is easily one the top melodic rock live albums of the previous decade, as "Danger Danger" perform at a level few would have thought possible. Paul's vocals are impeccable-lacking nowhere in comparison to the studio versions; the man's voice bares such depth, clarity and attack reinforcing his reputation as one of the best singers in the genre.

Digitally remastered four CD collection. Surely one of the most unsung bands in the history of American Hard Rock music, Bang released no less than three full-length albums for Capitol in the early '70s that criminally sank without trace. Undoubtedly the heaviest of Americas proto-metal bands from the period, they also had a strong sense of melodic power, which really should have led them to much bigger things…
