“Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Poison – 1988

This week Aaron Rubio dives into the trash and comes out smelling like 1989’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Poison. This song is the quintessential hair-metal power-ballad that has jerked tears and dropped panties all over the world, however it was nearly axed by the record company before it even hit the airwaves. As an ode to the joys and pitfalls of life on the road, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” has become a cultural metaphor for taking the good with the bad. Why did Bret Michaels write such a sad, sad song? What is he hiding under that bandana? How does Keanu Reeves fit into all of this? All these questions and more will be answered on this week’s episode of Single File.

  1. The year before (1987), i met a girl who was into hard rock like myself, but I was a hardcore Ratt fan, and when I she invited me into her room, i saw her Poison poster and started instantly berating them, to the point that she asked me to leave. A year later I hear “Every Rose”, thought it was a great song, then the announcer says that it was by Poison; I cried.

  2. I gave this 5 stars because its the only song I can play on guitar, and we all know how rough life on the road truly is. Its the best way to lose your hair.
