Über Quiet Riot
Quiet Riot are distinguished for having the first No. 1 debut album by a metal band when Metal Health took over the charts in 1983. The Sunset Strip faves, who were formed by singer Kevin DuBrow and initially featured future Ozzy guitarist Randy Rhoads, scored a massive hit that same year with a remake of Slade's "Cum On Feel the Noize." Two more albums followed, but aside from another charting Slade cover, "Mama We're All Crazee Now," the band's success was waning. By 1987, they had fired DuBrow and effectively split up due to infighting and lagging sales. DuBrow was brought back into the fold in 1993, though, and Quiet Riot released another five albums before he died suddenly in 2007. The band then officially called it quits.
