“I Saw Red” is a song by American rock band Warrant. It was released in December 1990 as the second single from Warrant’s second album Cherry Pie. Cherry Pie is the second studio album by American rock band Warrant, released on September 11, 1990. The album is the band’s best-known and highest-selling release and peaked at number 7 on The Billboard 200. The album featured the hits “Cherry Pie”, “I Saw Red”, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and “Blind Faith”.
The song was one of Warrant’s most successful singles, reaching number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1991, number fourteen on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #36 on the Australian charts and spawning a music video.
The song was inspired by a true story of betrayal. It was written after Warrant lead vocalist Jani Lane had walked in on his girlfriend in bed with his best friend, resulting in Lane’s nervous breakdown and the delayed release of the band’s first record Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.
