Editors’ Notes

By the time Slade released their second studio album, Slayed?, in 1972, their poppy glam-rumble scene was set. It later became a hell of an argument to say that bands such as The Runaways, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, and even Cheap Trick would’ve happened if this band hadn’t. The album’s tormented Chuck Berry riffs, boogie-woogie stomp, (purposely) facile chant-choruses, and the wonderfully throaty tenor from singer Noddy Holder show a band all but inventing the classic template of working-class kids creating an international rumpus. Just think how many bands covered Slade’s classic glitter preener “Mama Weer All Crazee Now” (The Runaways, for example, recorded it years before Quiet Riot’s charting version), or how their big guitars laid glorious waste to Janis Joplin’s “Move Over,” or how you think you haven’t heard the boot-boy rebel rouser “Gudbuy T’Jane” until you do, and say, “oh, I absolutely dig this song.” The U.K. music weekly NME wasn’t kidding when it called Slayed? one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll releases of all time.

Go Slade!

oh yeah slade has arrived and im feelin it! I love slade

GREAT album

I really don't understand why Slade wasn't popular in America. They were HUGE in England, and this album shows why. This is truly one of the best rock and roll albums of all time. "Mama Weer All Crazy Now" and "Gudbuy T' Jane" were top hits in England and deservedly so. There are plenty of other great songs on this album, too. "The Whole World's Goin' Crazee" should've been as big a hit as the singles. "How D' you ride" had hit potential too IMO. "Look at Last night" and "I Don't Mind" aren't songs that would strike you as huge radio hits, but they are great songs non-theless. This whole album is great music that fires you up with great song after great song. The weakest songs are the cover songs, which are decent but not great, and the bonus tracks (wiith the exception of "My Life is Natural." that's one's pretty good). but the rest of the album rocks!

It's about time!

iTunes finally has this superb album available, the best and most consistent Slade album. Not a bad track - it's great all the way through!

Slade may have never truly caught on with American audiences (often narrow-mindedly deemed "too British-sounding"), but the group became a sensation in their homeland with their anthemic brand of glam rock in the early '70s, as they scored a staggering 11 Top Five hits in a four-year span from 1971 to 1974 (five of which topped the charts). Comprised of singer/guitarist Noddy Holder (born Neville Holder, June 15, 1946 in Walsall, West Midlands, England), guitarist Dave Hill (born April 4, 1946, in...
