In the mid-'70s, Glitter bedazzled crowds with a primal version of Glam Rock. Unlike David Bowie and T. Rex, he dumbed down the lyrics and cranked up the volume with songs that were essentially group chants. His first single, Rock And Roll Part 2
, was his most successful. Released in 1972, it went to #2 in the UK and #7 in the US, but never really went away, as the repeated "hey!" chant became a huge crowd pleaser at sporting events.
