  • Baby baby baby!

    Yow!

    So you think I got an evil mind, well I'll tell you honey
    And I don't know why
    And I don't know why
    So you think my singing's out of time, well it makes me money
    And I don't know why
    And I don't know why
    Anymore
    Oh no

    So come on, feel the noise
    Girls, grab your boys
    We get wild, wild, wild
    We get wild, wild, wild
    So come on, feel the noise
    Girls, grab your boys
    We get wild, wild, wild
    At your door

    So you say I got a funny face, I ain't got no worries
    And I don't know why
    And I don't know why
    Say I'm a scruff bag well it's no disgrace, I ain't in no hurry
    And I don't know why
    I just don't know why
    Anymore
    Oh no

    So come on, feel the noise
    Girls, grab your boys
    We get wild, wild, wild
    We get wild, wild, wild
    So come on, feel the noise
    Girls, grab your boys
    We get wild, wild, wild
    At your door

    Yow!
    So you think we have a lazy time, well you should know better
    And I don't know why
    I just don't know why
    And you say I got a dirty mind, well I'm a mean go-getter
    And I don't know why
    And I don't know why
    Anymore
    Oh no

    So come on, feel the noise
    Girls, grab your boys
    We get wild, wild, wild
    We get wild, wild, wild
    So come on, feel the noise
    Girls, grab your boys
    We get wild, wild, wild
    At your door

    So come on, feel the noise (come on, come on)
    Girls, grab your boys (grab your boys)
    We get wild, wild, wild (we get wild)

  • Dylan from Texas, United StatesWell Wayne, the song that would have boosted Quiet Riot's career would have been Metal Health (Bang Your Head) it was a great song and everybody loved it.
  • David from Hawarden, United KingdomJohn of NC, I bet you heard the a Quiet Riot version first, right? I understand that the first version of a song you hear and get used to will probably become your favourite version. I twas aware of Joe Cocker's Feelin' Alright and With A Little Help....long before I heard the originals and prefer Cocker's takes both times. However, on this occasion I must ask you to reconsider. Quiet Riot offered a watered down, limp version of COFTN which lacked the aggression and authentically dirty ass working class power which Slade could deliver in their sleep. Jim Lea is a masterful bass player, Dave and Don average performers but NOBODY in the history of rock has/had a voice like Noddy's. He could strip paint at a hundred yards with his roar. He made my rib age shake at concerts many times. Not only this, Noddy's intonation and humour were unique and, in my opinion, cannot be copied; and certainly not by a third rate bunch of 80s wannabes like Quiet Riot.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 3rd 1973, "Cum On Feel The Noize" by Slade peaked at #1 (for 4 weeks) on the United Kingdom's Singles chart...
    In the U.S.A. on May 20th, 1973 the song entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart for a two stay; peaking at #98...
    The British quartet had three other records make the U.S. Top 100; "Take Me Bak 'Ome" #97), "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" (#76), and "Gudbuy T' Jane" (#68)...
    But in their native U.K. between 1971 and 2013 they had thirty-eight charted hits; with six of them reaching #1.
  • Richard from London, United Kingdomwhat escapes many people - not least makers of "70s music documentaries" who give slade very little space - is that this was the first "straight in at no 1" single in the UK since the Beatles. Slade then repeated this with their next song, "Squeeze me Pleeze me" and with the one two after that: "Merry Xmas Everybode". Their string of hits was an outstanding achievement by any yardstick. Their songs were also perfect combinations of humour, mischief, danceability, energy, and in fact, musicailty.. They were inspired by Chuck Berry among others, and it shows.
  • Percy from Melbourne, AustraliaGet you head read, John. Quiet Riot was a vastly inferior band to Slade. This is more than opinion, compare the number of hits each band had.
  • Allen from Seside Heights, Njcum on feel the noise is a great song it is even better when they proformed it live
  • Luke from Manchester, England1. It's Gudbuy T'Jane
    2. It's "Better Wi'Nowt Taken Out"
  • Wayne from Salem, VaA very good rock and roll song or anthem by Slade. They rock it! Quiet Riot were okay. But Slade was better. Hell' if it hadn't been for the success Quiet Riot got from covering Slade. Then what else could they have done to boost their career.
  • Kenny from Clydebank, ScotlandSlade! Great band. Noddy Holder is like the Hovis man, a staple: better we nowt taken owt. Old Noddy sideburns could belt them out, 'Goodbye to Jane' being my ultimate Slade track. Lines from their songs, 'saw you woz your own, I didn't stay round to say goodnight, and it's all right, it's all right....I don't want to drink my whisky but still do...so you think I've got an evil mind, well, you should know better...' Goodbye to Jane has one of the best guitar intros of all time. Cheap as chips, the poor man's Led Zep. Maybe they even invented text sms english in their song titles, long before mobile cell phones were even thought of, lad.
  • Max from Laconia, NhIve actually never heard this original song before. I always thought that Quiet Riot did this first. Slade always misspelled their song titles! Such rebels!
  • Shelby from Idiotville , KyYes indeed, John, yes indeed.
  • John from Hendersonville, NcOne of the few songs in which the cover is better than the original.
