Slaughter is an American rock band formed in Las Vegas, Nevada by lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Mark Slaughter and bassist Dana Strum.  The band reached stardom in 1990 with their first album Stick It to Ya , which spawned several hit singles including " Up All Night ", "Spend My Life", "Mad About You" and "Fly to the Angels". The album reached double platinum status in the United States.  The band remains a steady act in national tours, mainly in the Rock Never Stops Tour which features several bands of the same era.
Slaughter formed in Las Vegas, Nevada, in late 1988, out of the ashes of lead vocalist Mark Slaughter and bassist Dana Strum's previous band, Vinnie Vincent Invasion. Vinnie Vincent Invasion's record company, Chrysalis Records , took the $4 million contract away from Vinnie Vincent for overexceeding his credit line with the label, and transferred the contract to former members Slaughter and Strum. By 1989, Slaughter and Strum completed the lineup by recruiting lead guitarist Tim Kelly and drummer Blas Elias.
Slaughter's debut album Stick It to Ya had three singles released that hit the Billboard Hot 100 : the hit "Fly to the Angels" (US#19), and the moderate hits "Up All Night" (US#27) and "Spend My Life" (US#39). During this time, a song was released from the soundtrack to the film Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey . That song, titled "Shout It Out", was accompanied by a music video but failed to make the US Hot 100. 
In 1992, the band released their second album, titled The Wild Life . It reached number eight on the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was certified gold, but didn't produce any Top 40 hits on the US Hot 100. The only single to reach the Hot 100 was the first single "Real Love" (US#69).
The band planned to record their third album in early 1994. However, in 1993 guitarist Tim Kelly was arrested for charges of drug trafficking, while bassist Dana Strum had a motorcycle accident that injured his playing hand. The delayed album was completed in February 1994 and the first single "Searchin'" was released. However, due to Chrysalis Records absorption into EMI Records, Slaughter was dropped from EMI.
