Ratt is an American heavy metal band that formed in San Diego and enjoyed significant commercial success in the 1980s. The band is most notable for their songs "Round and Round," "Wanted Man," "Lay It Down," "You're in Love" and "Back For More." Though the group lost popularity in the following decade, Ratt has been recognized as instrumental in the formation of the early 1980s Los Angeles hard rock and glam metal scene.

The band has sold an estimated 16 million records in the U.S. while worldwide album sales are approximated at over 30 million. VH1 slotted the band at #79 on its "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".
