Slade, one of the most prolific British rock bands of the 1970s—they had 17 consecutive top 20 hits in the UK—never quite crossed over to the U.S. Even so, their influence on American rock bands is undeniable. One of their biggest hits, “Cum on Feel the Noize” (1973), was covered by Quiet Riot, who took it to number five on the U.S. Billboard charts in 1983.
Here, they cover John Sebastian’s “Darlin’ Be Home Soon.”
