By 1989, Slaughter and Strum completed the lineup by recruiting lead guitarist Tim Kelly and drummer Blas Elias.

Slaughter’s debut album Stick It to Ya had three singles released that hit the Billboard Hot 100: the hit “Fly to the Angels” (#19), and the moderate hits “Up All Night” (#27) and “Spend My Life” (#39). During this time, a song was released from the soundtrack to the film Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.
