* CorruptCop: "Uncle Tom's Cabin"[[note]](No relation to the novel)[[/note]]. The video is more explicit but the local sheriff and deputy secretly dumping bodies into a deep lake leaves little room to assume anything good.

* BlackSheepHit: "Cherry Pie". It's not really atypical of their style, but it was a song the label wanted them to write and became a much bigger hit than the band expected it to (Jani Lane wrote the lyrics out quickly on an empty pizza box). The band still doesn't know what to make of it after all these years; while they're proud that they managed to write such an iconic song, they also seem to see the fact that a semi-parodic ClicheStorm that was written in less than an hour as a way of shutting up their label became their biggest hit by a long shot is pretty pathetic.
* ChorusOnlySong: "Cherry Pie". It's more or less the American equivalent to "[[Music/DefLeppard Pour Some Sugar On Me]]", to which it bears a suspiciously similar resemblance.

Establishing themselves as the number three band in the Hollywood rock scene behind Music/GunsNRoses and Music/{{Poison}}, the band had their breakout hits with the multi-platinum album ''Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich'' and the single "Heaven", which got to number two in the American charts (although it peaked behind MilliVanilli, [[FakeBand which is more or less the same as being the number one song]]) and reached their peak success with ''Cherry Pie'' and the eponymous hit single, an arena rock anthem that soon became their SignatureSong.

* CreatorBacklash: When asked about "Cherry Pie" in an interview with VH1, Jani lamented, "I could shoot myself in the fucking head for writing that song." However, later on he admitted that he'd been caught at a bad time and clarified that he liked the song and was happy so many people enjoyed it, but regretted that it overshadowed a lot of other stuff they did.



* ExecutiveMeddling: The record company wanted them to write a "[[Music/{{Aerosmith}} Love In An Elevator]]" style rock anthem; "Cherry Pie" was the result.
