No, it doesn't. But it does have to be about memorable songs.

The decision to release 'Piece Of My Heart' as the first single/video was badly misjudged.

You can decry (the single) 'Cherry Pie' as nonsense (and you'd be right) but they followed it with 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' which, apart from being a fantastic song, had a superb video to go with it. Say what you like about Warrant, but nothing Rough Cutt released is as good as Cherry Pie (the album) because nobody was as accomplished in the songwriting department as Jani Lane.

The other bands broke because they had the songs. Plain and simple. For every Cherry Pie there was a Mr Rainmaker. For every Stick It there was a House Of Broken Love.

Rough Cutt had nothing.
