is an American Hair Metal
band based in Queens, New York. The band was formed in 1987 by vocalist Mike Pont, bassist Bruno Ravel, and drummer Steve West, though Pont later left and was replaced by Ted Poley. Their first album was simply known as Danger Danger
and produced hits "Bang Bang" and "Naughty Naughty" (and no, not all of their songs are repeated words like the band's name).
The album Cockroach
went through some legal issues; it was was recorded in 1993, after which Ted Poley was fired. Naturally, Poley was not happy, so he ended up suing. The album eventually did get released in 2001 with two discs, one with vocals by Poley and one recorded by replacement vocalist Paul Laine.
In 2004, Laine left and Poley returned, with the album Revolve
being his first Danger Danger Album since Cockroach
On the subject of Ted Poley, he has done some solo work and has contributed to the soundtracks for the Sonic the Hedgehog
series, with "Escape from the City" (recorded with Tony Harnell) being one of the more popular ones (Poley worked on a remix in Sonic Generations
, though Harnell did not return).
