Their debut album, Look What the Cat Dragged In was released on August 2, 1986. It included three hits: "Talk Dirty to Me", "I Want Action", and "I Won't Forget You". Sales for the album topped 2 million copies.
Poison's second album, Open Up And Say...Ahh!, which was released on May 21, 1988, would ultimately go on to sell 8 million copies worldwide. The record included the band's biggest hit "Every Rose Has Its Thorn", along with other top 10 hits, "Nothin' But A Good Time" and the Loggins & Messina cover "Your Mama Don't Dance". By the time the band toured with David Lee Roth (in 1988 on the Skyscraper Tour), it was apparent that they had become a major live act.
Poison's third album, Flesh & Blood, released on June 21, 1990 was also highly successful. The record went multi-platinum, spawning three gold singles: "Unskinny Bop", "Ride the Wind" and the ballad "Something To Believe In". Flesh & Blood reached #2 on the American charts, providing the impetus for a further World Tour.
Poison's most recent record with new material, Hollyweird, was released on 21 May 2002. In 2004, Poison opened up for Kiss in the "Rock the Nation" tour. In 2005, the single "Nothin' But A Good Time" appeared on the soundtrack of the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith, during the scene in which Brad Pitt's character is driving through the desert in an off-road vehicle.
In 2006, Poison will be playing with heavy metal band Cinderella on a joint tour.
