Rock-on Hair Bands Not Having a Bad Day

The afterlife:"Talk Dirty to Me", with Michaels' newly recorded vocals, is a track in "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock". The song also figured prominently in a "Scrubs" episode in which a coma patient's living will stipulated that it be played daily. "The Simpsons" and "The OC" have used "Every Rose", as did 1991's "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey". Michaels keeps a high profile, too, guesting on "Yes, Dear", judging the 2005 season of "Nashville Star" and starring in VH1's"Rock of Love" reality show.

Ratt

The hit: "Round and Round" (1984, reached No. 12 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart)

The afterlife: "Ratt", which reunited with three founding members after a "VH1 Behind the Music" episode rekindled interest, celebrates the 25th anniversary of its first EP this year. The band's biggest hit has been licensed for at least three video games: "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories", "Saints Row" and "Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s." It's also heard on Cartoon Network's "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy" at the close of the "Billy & Mandy Save Christmas" episode, planting the seeds for a new generation of Ratt 'n' Rollers.
