A metal band from the 80s. Call them hair if you like, but unlike Twisted Sister they never dressed in drag. Mostly died with the downfall of the hair metal scene, but they're a band that are still on the headbanger's radar. Or they were, until Kevin DuBrow checked out on a cocaine overdose in his Las Vegas house in 2007.

Known mainly for their mega-hit "Cum On Feel The Noize" and their #1 album 'Metal Health', Quiet Riot were much like Dokken - one of the most underrated bands out there. Kevin DuBrow's great vocals helped but his songwriting didn't; however Frankie Banali was one of the best drummers on the LA scene back then. Rudy Sarzo was a good bassist and Carlos Cavazo was also a great guitarist.

Headbangers and metalheads worldwide will however know them for songs like 'Metal Health' - the number one headbanger anthem - 'Slick Black Cadillac', 'Mama Weer All Crazee Now', 'Love's A Bitch' as well as 'Cum On Feel The Noize'. One less well known song was 'Danger Zone' which could shake a house down but didn't make it past the demo stage.

Their biggest achievement was Metal Health; not only did it hit number 1 in 1983 but it also made its mark as the first ever metal album to do so.

I'm a fan of Quiet Riot.
Quiet Riot were responsible for the classic headbanger's anthem - Metal Health.

I got the boys
To make the noise
Won't ever let up, hope it annoys you!
Join the pack
Fill the crack
Well now you're here, there's no way back!

Bang your head!!
Metal health'll drive you mad
Bang your head!!
Metal health'll drive you mad

Quiet Riot was a hair metal band in the 80's. No one has heard of any of their songs except the mega hit Cum On Feel The Noize. Bigger rock fans have heard of Metal Health/Bang Your Head. Quiet Riot happens to be one of my favorite bands. They're original guitarist Randy Rhoads left the band to do some work with Ozzy. The biggest song he helped write was Crazy Train.
Cum On Feel The Noize
Girls rock your boys
We get wild wild wild wild
wild wild wild
So you think my voice is outta time
it makes me money
and i dont know why

1. a person who appears to be solemn and calm in public, yet really lets loose and gets wild during afterhours or while alone with one person, like a lover.

2. a glam metal band that scored big in the 80s. Their first international album "Metal Health" made it to the top of the album chart in the autumn of 1983. It is the first heavy metal album to top the chart. Also, "Cum On Feel the Noize" ( a Slade cover), "Bang Your Head (Metal Health)", "Slick Black Cadillac", "Run for Cover" and more from that album were hits. Other hits the band scored were "Mama Weer All Crazee Now", "Party All Night", "Stomp Your Hands, Clap Your Feet", "Condition Critical", the funk-inflected "The Wild and the Young" and a lot more. Singer Kevin DuBrow was found dead this week, as of yet no information has been released about his death. Heavy metal underwent a further step in it's evolution in the 80s when the vocals became more screamed, a tendency that was spearheaded by bands like AC/DC and Def Leppard, and Kevin was more than fit for the job - he could belt them out with the best of them. He was notorious for his wild antics on stage. At a 2000 concert in Columbus, Ohio he talked about glam metal's glory days in the fun 80s and how the music scene changed in the "fucking PC 90s" (his exact words). He made the band what it was. He was 52. RIP Kevin. Rest your head, weer really are all crazee now. VIVA ROCK'N'ROLL!
1. Mike acted like an introvert in class, but after school he dropped LSD into his soft drink and made out with and screwed his girlfriend underneath the bleachers. He was a complete quiet riot. Very few people knew of this.

2. When Quiet Riot played live in concert they were anything but quiet. You could do what their signature song says - bang your head. Quiet Riot ROCKs!

The act of masturbating while on the phone with or in the close vicinity of someone who shouldn't know.
ie. mom, girlfriend
Man my girlfriend was yelling at me on the phone yesterday, but I barely caught a word. I was busy in a quiet riot.
