Warrant Singer -- Tax Cheat of the Week?!

6/21/2009 3:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jani LaneThe Accused -- Jani Lane ... that singer dude from the '90s hair band Warrant.

The Debt -- $121,024

The Story -- The Detroit News dug up an IRS record stating Lane, the guy who sang "Cherry Pie" back in 1990, failed to pay federal income taxes for seven years ... that's seven years longer than the amount of time this guy was making money as a rock star.

Lane was busted earlier this week for suspicion of DUI in California.

Hey I love Warrant! That was back in the day when I was in the Navy. These guys rocked...all of them. Give him a break and let him recover from his mistakes. Like as if any of you negative people have never made a mistake in your own life? Please.
KEEP ROCKIN IT JANI!

I worked with Jani @ my studio( Apple Studios) in Tampa in the 90's, and i have to say he was one of the most professional guys that came through my place. We all make mistakes- so he is Human...Shoob

I realize most of the TMZ staff were sperm back in the nineties (and many arguably still are), but Warrant was popular for several years.

Warrant was popular?
Not with anybody I knew back in the 80s and early 90s.

They had one good song 'Uncle Tom's Cabin'.

But in all fairness, Janie is a drunken joke and a perfect example of self parody.
Want him to be your new best friend?
Give him a pack of smokes and a bottle of Vodka.
LOL!

the dude is more famous for his drunken antics than he is for his mediocre songs.
LOL!

Wasn't this the guy who was on Celebrity Fit Club a while back and went on a terrible bender and they talked him into going to Rehab? Looks like his page lists tour dates for last year or something and if they occurred, it seems as if some funds should have been generated. Oh well.
