This sweet raglan is for the band Quiet Riot and the shirt commemorates their1984 tour promoting the album Metal Health. The album made history when it became the first ever heavy metal album to reach the top of the Billboard 200, successfully dethroning Synchronicity from the Police. Many music critics saw this upset as the official start of the hair metal era, and Metal Health also spawned Quiet Riot's signature hit "Cum On Feel the Noize". The attention the single drew brought nationwide focus to the metal scene which was emerging out of Los Angeles, although the song was actually a cover of a 1973 track written and recorded by the English band Slade.
Heavy rotation on MTV and a small feature on the Footloose soundtrack, furthered the band's popularity. After the release of Metal Health, they drew more attention by touring as the opening act for ZZ Top on their Eliminator Tour. Quiet Riot also supported Black Sabbath during their Born Again Tour. Then in 1984 they released their follow up album Condition Critical, which included another successful Slade cover "Mama Weer All Crazee Now".
