Do you guys like my suit? I got a free bowl of soup with it.
- Kevin DuBrow - talking about his leopard skin suit.


This is kind of funny but also an actual fact. In late spring 1984 the members of Quiet Riot criticized the heavy metal band Fastway for their "lack of originality" and on the same week they released THEIR OWN version of the Slade glam rock hit "Mama Weer All Crazee Now". They hit the Top 5 the previous fall with a cover of Slade's "Cum On Feel the Noize". On top of that, their new album "Condition Critical" not only had the QR "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" cover but yet ANOTHER Slade cover - this one being "Stomp Your Hands (Clap Your Feet)". One critic summed up this new album with two words: "Condition Terminal".

Band Name Origins:

  • Kevin DuBrow's friend Rick Parfitt (Status Quo) said "Quite right". But with the British accent, it sounded more like "Quiet riot". Also synonymous with the title of an old Buddy Rich song. Submitted by: rocker

Stupid Band Names:

  • As someone else already pointed out, a riot, by definition is not supposed to be quiet. What were these guys thinking? "Let's just use these words as our name just because they rhyme"? That's not a good combo if you ask me! Submitted by: Doohiki
  • Last time I checked, riots were loud. Unless this is a riot of librarians, it should be loud. Submitted by: Travis

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Excessive covering of Slade songs"
This band is best remembered for their cover version of the song "Cum On Feel The Noize", originally by the 1970s Glam Rockers, Slade, but the band also covered at least three more Slade tracks, all of which sound nearly identical to the originals.
