RATT - Back For More

RATT - Back For More - About the song

The version of "Back for More" featured on this EP is an earlier recording than the one on the album Out of the Cellar. The European version also features an earlier recording of "You're in Trouble" as a bonus track, believed to feature Joey Cristofanilli on bass guitar. A cover of Rufus Thomas' "Walkin' the Dog" is also included, presumably as a nod to the 1973 Aerosmith version. It is also noted for the strong lead guitar presence of guitarist Robbin Crosby, whose trademark "blues with a twist" solos are prominent through the first four songs. An early version of "Tell the World" (which did not feature Blotzer or Croucier) was also featured on the compilation Metal Massacre, but was removed from later pressings. "U Got It" often opened the show circa 1983-84, and Pearcy did the same during his Nitronic 'Pure Hell' Tour in 2000.

Back for more - lyrics

You turn him away, you tell him you're mine

You make him believe you're but one of a kind

You give him a cold look, you tell him a lie

You turn him away, girl, you know you're mine


And you're back, you're back for more

You turn away, you're back for more

You gave him an inch, he took you a mile

He made you believe you're society's child

Then get in his new car, get in his style

I told you his way, he won't take you far
