Cherry Pie is the title track from Warrant's album of the same name which was released in 1990, and is Warrant's best-known song. Cherry Pie was not actually planned for the album. Joey Allen of Warrant has stated that the album was originally going to be called Quality "You Can Taste."

Cherry Pie soon became a Top Ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 10 and also reached number 19 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. The song has been cited by many as a "rock anthem".  In 2009, Cherry Pie was named the 56th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.

The girl in the music video is Bobbie Brown, who met Warrant's lead singer Jani Lane. She eventually left her boyfriend Matthew Nelson for him, and they wed a couple of months later in July 1991. They were married for three years and had a daughter, Taylar Jayne Lane, before divorcing in 1993.  Jani Lane was found dead of acute alcohol poisoning at a Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills, California at age 47.
