Dangerous Curves is the fifth studio album by American hard rock/heavy metal singer and guitarist Lita Ford, released in 1991. Though it was a popular release and received heavy video rotation on MTV,[3] the album was not as successful as its predecessor as musical tastes were shifting towards alternative rock in late 1991.[3] The album charted on both the US and UK charts in 1992 and the single, "Shot of Poison", was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance - Female in 1993. This was Lita Ford's second Grammy nomination since 1984's "Dancin' On The Edge".[4]
