QUIET RIOT-CUM ON FEEL THE NOIZE

"Cum On Feel the Noize" is a rock song originally released by Slade in 1973. Written by Jim Lea and Noddy Holder and produced by Chas Chandler, "Cum On Feel the Noize" was Slade's fourth number-one single in the UK and their first to enter straight at number one. As a single from Slade, it was a follow-up to "Gudbuy T' Jane", a #2-hit in the UK. The song was revived in 1983 by heavy metal band Quiet Riot, who also covered Slade's "Mama Weer All Crazee Now". Quiet Riot's version of "Cum On Feel the Noize" went on to peak at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 19, 1983. It helped make Quiet Riot's Metal Health album a number-one hit. The song's success drew huge nationwide attention to the 1980s Los Angeles metal scene. It also helped to break Slade belatedly in the US. The song was certified gold by the RIAA. Originally, Kevin DuBrow and Frankie Banali were dead set on not covering the song, because they claimed that they hated it. Instead, they decided to try to cover the song as badly as they could so the label would refuse to release it. Quiet Riot's version of "Cum On Feel the Noize" was ranked #80 on VH1's 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders back in 2002, though the song was not Quiet Riot's only Top 40 hit and therefore not a true one-hit wonder. In 2009, it was named the 41st best hard rock song of all time also by VH1.
