''Out of the Cellar'' is the breakthrough album by glam metal band Ratt, released in 1984 (see 1984 in music). It is RIAA certified Triple Platinum album. Produced by Beau Hill, the album features their best-known hit, "Round and Round", and other hits such as "Wanted Man", "Lack of Communication", and a re-recorded version of "Back for More", a song which originally appeared on the Ratt EP. "Back For More" was originally written by "Stephen Pearcy" and apparently, Matt Thorne AKA "Matt Thorr", although Thorne was only credited for the song on the 2005 album Rat Attack "Round and Round Greatest Hits". on "Cleopatra Records". "In Your Direction" was a song that Pearcy wrote and had since Mickey Ratt, "I'm Insane" and "Scene Of The Crime" were songs that Crosby had pre-Ratt. In 2008, "Round and Round" & "I'm Insane" were featured in ''The Wrestler''.

Wanted Man was co-written by bassist Joey Cristofanilli. Cristofanilli briefly substituted for Juan Croucier, who was also a member of Dokken at the time.

The model on the album cover is Tawny Kitaen, better known for her appearances in Whitesnake music videos, and the same year's teen-aimed film Bachelor Party. As she was long-time girlfriend to guitarist Robbin Crosby at that time, she also appeared in the "Back For More" music video.
