Quiet Riot's first metal/hard rock album after the their AOR/arena rock years, sometimes seen as a sort of "second debut" as the first two albums were originally only released in Japan.

Considered one of the first albums to break heavy metal into the general mainstream with the #1 hit "Cum on Feel the Noize".

"Slick Black Cadillac" is a re-recorded song from Quiet Riot II.

The song "Metal Health" is the opening song of the 2008 film The Wrestler.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Randy Rhoads.

Besides the regular black vinyl it was also released as a picture disc.

Recording information:

Recorded and mixed at Pasha Music House.
