That ramps me up to get through the house dusting, although I have to be careful around breakables! – Chris at Walker.
Quiet Riot managed to wake up suburban America and ascend to the top of the charts even after their founding guitar god Randy Rhoads defected to play with Ozzy Osbourne. The band’s biggest hit “Cum on Feel the Noize” was actually a Slade cover, but Quiet Riot delivered it with such drive and attitude that it became their own. Aside from that anthill-stomping track, the band’s glam-bangin’ debut Metal Health features such in-yer-face morsels as “Slick Black Cadillac,” “Run for Cover,” and the title track, all of which blended the image and good-time vibe of the Sweet, Slade, and Queen with the guitar firepower of Van Halen. —Jon Wiederhorn
