Cry Tough

Album: Look What The Cat Dragged In (1986)
Charted: 97


  • This song is about the band feeling larger than life after finding out that they were booked at The Palace, which is a major concert venue in Michigan. The lyrics were written as a creed to the band to keep on believing and never giving up in the bleak times of their early days. The video was shot over two nights at The Palace. >>

  • This was Poison's first single. It flopped, but was followed by a wave of success, as the next singles "Talk Dirty To Me," "I Want Action" and "I Won't Forget You" established the band as Hair Metal powers.
