Top 10 Danger Danger Songs

Danger Danger Songs

This Top 10 Danger Danger Songs List looks at some the best Danger Danger songs like “Bang Bang,” “Feels Like Love” “Monkey Love,” and many more. Danger Danger was formed in the late ’80s when the glam metal scene flourished. By the time the band was being formed, there were quite a number of groups that were already sharing the spoils of the burgeoning glam metal scene. Some of the reputable frontrunners include Mötley Crüe, Warrant, Poison, Faster Pussycat, Stryper, and Kix. However, Danger Danger was not really a glam band. They were a rock and roll band that crossed many genres as much of their music fused elements of hard rock, pop and at times metal. Just listen to the song “Rocket To Your Heart,” and you will hear all of it. In many ways they were much closer to Bon Jovi than Motley Crue.

Danger Danger was formed in 1987 and started recording demos in a bid to attract the attention of major record labels. Eventually, the band signed with Epic Records. The band issued its debut album in 1989, releasing an eponymous LP.

Danger Danger is the band’s most successful LP release, peaking at number eighty-eight on the Billboard 200. The album features most of the best Danger Danger songs of all time. “Bang Bang,” “Don’t Walk Away,” and “Feels Like Love” are some of the magnificent releases from the album. The band would later release its first live extended play, Down and Dirty, in 1990.

Danger Danger returned with its second most successful LP, Screw It! in 1991. The album featured a blend of glam metal, hard rock, and heavy metal sounds. Screw It! was the band’s last effort to make it to the Billboard 200. The album peaked at number one hundred and twenty-three on the Billboard 200. Additionally, Screw It! managed to chart at number sixty-seven in Japan.

Unfortunately, none of the next five albums released by the band created much attention to the band’s music compared to its debut and sophomore album. Revolve, issued in 2009, is the band’s final album release effort. The band still has a loyal following thanks to its fairly great glam metal releases. Here we present the top 10 Danger Danger songs of all time.

#10- Walk It Like Ya Talk It

Ushering us to the top 10 Danger Danger songs list is the exhilarating hit “Walk It Like Ya Talk It.” “Walk It Like Ya Talk It” is a rolicking rock and roll tune that reminds us a bit of Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy.”  The song was released on the band’s fifth LP, The Return of the Great Gildersleeves, issued in 2000. In this song, the singer wishes that the subject matures up and walks his talk. “Walk It Like Ya Talk It” finds the band delivering some of its best instrumentation with commendable skills notable on the rhythm guitars.

#9 – Comin’ Home

“Comin’ Home” is one of the most alluring hits from the band’s sophomore LP Screw It! issued in 1991. The song is one of the band’s love-oriented tracks. “Comin’ Home” finds the singer returning to the comfort of his significant other’s affection. This is after breaking a lot of promises and making mistakes. “Comin’ Home” was a successful hit in the UK. It peaked at number seventy-five on the UK Singles Chart.

#8 – Rocket to Your Heart

The number eight track of our top 10 Danger Danger songs is the outstanding hit “Rocket to Your Heart.” “Rocket to Your Heart” is featured on Danger Danger’s most recent LP, Revolve, issued in 2009. The song is one of the band’s releases after the return of lead vocalist Ted Poley. “Rocket to Your Heart” doesn’t get to exploit Rob Marcelo’s guitar skills. Instead, the song’s melody is majorly attributed by the inspirational synth riffs delivered by Paul Laine. For those not from New York, the photo on the album cover is the legendary globe in Queens, New York that was part of the World’s Fair in 1964. In 2021, it’s still standing. The final battle scene in the motion picture Men In Black was filmed underneath the globe. 

#7 – Don’t Walk Away

“Don’t Walk Away” is one of the musical gems that finds the band’s fans reminiscing of the successful beginnings of the band. The song was released on Danger Danger’s self-titled debut LP. “Don’t Walk Away” finds the singer trying to lure a woman into his life. The singer is quite certain that the woman feels his love for her. He hopes that the woman gives it a shot to experience this feeling that the two can’t ignore.

#6 – Afraid of Love

Number six on our top 10 Danger Danger songs is the ravishing hit “Afraid of Love.” “Afraid of Love” is one of the best Danger Danger songs from Four the Hard Way LP, issued in 1997. The song finds the singer reminding a lady that she is not the only one who is philophobic. However, he promises to be with the woman if the going gets tough. Toto, J Rice, and Mario Judah have also released a track with a similar title.

#5- Hearts on the Highway

Revolve is one of the most distinguished returns in the glam metal scene by Danger Danger. The album featured some of the best Danger Danger songs of all time, including our number five track, “Heart on the Highway.” “Heart on the Highway” features some great lead and rhythm guitar riffs delivered by Rob Marcello.

His moving skills on the guitar saw him being featured one time on the lineup of Ironhorse and House of Lords (as a stand-in guitarist). Frank Vestry supplies backing vocals to Ted Poley’s lead vocals, showcasing the vocal prowess of the band’s lineup at the album’s release.

#4- I Still Think About You

“I Still Think About You” is one of the best Danger Danger songs penned by Bruno Ravel and Steve West. The song is featured on Danger Danger’s 1991 LP, Screw It! “I Still Think About You” finds the singer rolling back into memories of a past relationship. He wonders if the woman remembers him like he does, wishing that they were still together. “I Still Think About You” peaked at number forty-six on the UK Singles Chart.
