Sunday RnR: Quiet Riot – Metal Health

metalhealth

Quiet Riot’s third studio album, Metal Health, was released 34 years ago on March 11, 1983. This album was the first to go mainstream in the glam metal genre, and the whole genre exploded after Metal Health reached number one on the Billboard charts. Bands from all up and down the Sunset Strip, including Mötley Crüe, WASP, and Warrant all got signed to record deals to capitalism on the interest in glam metal. Metal Health includes hits like “Cum on Feel the Noize” (a cover of a Slade song), “Metal Health (Bang Your Head)”, “Slick Black Cadillac”, and “Breathless”. This album helped shape the way music sounded in the 80’s and today on Sunday RnR, we shall feel the noise.
