Poison has selected a number of popular rock classics to be covered and molded into the band's new CD.

An important detail is coming up from glam metal band Poison's newest album "Poison'd!". The album that offers a selection of classic rock tune covers has revealed its heavily anticipated tracklisting. The 13 tracks are ranging from David Bowie's "Suffragete City" up to Grand Funk Railroad's "We're An American Band".

On January 3, the band posted on their official My Space page that they need the help from fans to pick songs for the album. Some suggested the band covering Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Freebird," Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz," and AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long". None of the songs was included in the record along with the obvious suggestion of Alice Cooper's "Poison." The band however kept Sweet and Alice Cooper in mind and decided to do their other songs.

Bowie's track and The Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers" are included because they are the band's favorite. Tracks like "Rock and Roll All Nite" and "Your Mama Don't Dance" meanwhile, come from their previous albums.

The not final sequence of the tracks is:

1. "Little Willy" (originally performed by Sweet)

2. "Suffragette City" (originally performed by David Bowie)

3. "I Never Cry" (originally performed by Alice Cooper)

4. "I Need To Know" (originally performed by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)

5. "Can't You See" (originally performed by the Marshall Tucker Band)

6. "What I Like About You" (originally performed by The Romantics)

7." Dead Flowers" (originally performed by the The Rolling Stones)

8. "Just What I Needed" (originally performed by The Cars)

9. "Rock And Roll All Nite" (originally performed by KISS)

10. "Squeeze Box" (originally performed by The Who)

11. "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" (originally performed by Jim Croce)

12. "Your Mama Don't Dance" (originally performed by Loggins & Messina)

13. "We're An American Band" (originally performed by Grand Funk Railroad)

Poison will conduct a massive tour in North America to promote this album. But before that, the band will hit the road with Ratt for the first time in 8 years in a tour beginning June 13 in Greenville, S.C.
