by Quiet Riot
Released: Jan 1983
Quiet Riot's third record, a massive hit in 1983, forever nailed the cartoon image of '80s pop metal. With Slade cover "Cum On Feel the Noize" dominating both the airwaves and MTV for weeks on end, and a band persona that was as much Three Stooges as Black Sabbath, Quiet Riot was a precursor to the straight up comedy metal of Twisted Sister, and Metal Health acted as an opening salvo in the whole pop metal explosion that defined the 1980s. Apparently there are even songs in addition to "Cum On Feel the Noize" and "Metal Health" on here. Bonus!
