Poison - Rock Champions

Poison – Rock Champions is a compilation album by American rock band Poison, released in 2001 by EMI.

The album consists of fourteen studio tracks from Poison's previous albums, Look What the Cat Dragged In, Open Up and Say...Ahh!, Flesh & Blood and also Native Tongue. It features no songs from Crack a Smile... and More! or Power to the People.

The compilation was a follow up/alternate version from the original Poison hits album Poison's Greatest Hits: 1986–1996 which was released in 1996. However, it still features the bands #1 hit single "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" and the top ten singles "Unskinny Bop" and "Your Mama Don't Dance".[1]

Rock Champions has a stronger focus on the band's fourth album Native Tongue. It has a total of six tracks represented, including the single "Body Talk", compared to only one track represented on the original compilation.

The album was produced by Ric Browde, Tom Werman, Bruce Fairbairn and Richie Zito.
