Invasion of Your Privacy by Ratt

Invasion of Your Privacy by Ratt  Great Album Covers

Invasion of Your Privacy was released in 1985, peaked at Number 7 and went double platinum. Ratt, a heavy metal band from the 1980s and best known for songs such as “Round and Round,” “Wanted Man,” and “Lay It Down”, was very influential in the formation of Los Angeles hard rock and glam metal scene during the early 1980s. Invasion of Your Privacy was Ratt’s second studio album.

The Invasion of Your Privacy album cover shows a voyeuristic view of a beautiful girl undressing in her bedroom which perfectly supports the album’s title. The record album’s sexual lyrics and the album cover photograph drew the attention of the Parents Music Resource Center,”PMRC”, who wanted to put a parental advisory label on the record album. The girl on the album cover is Playboy model Marianne Gravatte, who also appeared in the “Lay It Down” music video.

She was featured again in “Playmate Revisited” in April 1994. She also appeared in the video for Ric Ocasek’s “Something To Grab” from his solo debut album Beatitude.

The photograph used on the Invasion of Your Privacy album cover was done by photographer Nels Israelson.
