Brave History March 11th, 2019 - QUIET RIOT, PANTERA, VANILLA FUDGE, KINGDOM COME, MASTERPLAN, BLIND GUARDIAN, BLACK SABBATH, HELIX, ALICE COOPER, And More!

QUIET RIOT's landmark third album, Metal Health, was released 36 years ago today (March 11th, 1983). Led by the SLADE cover of "Cum On Feel The Noize", the album is notable for being the very first heavy metal album to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard 200, knocking THE POLICE's Synchronicity out of #1 in the US. Metal Health sits at six-times platinum in the US (six million copies) and three-times platinum (300,000 copies) in Canada.
