On August 3rd we welcome Quiet Riot to Rockford. Get your tickets HERE.

Pasha/Sony/Columbia

If the Quiet Riot album "Metal Health" was NEVER released, who knows where the rock world would be today. Would we have ever heard Motley Crue, Ratt, Poison, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Cinderella, etc??? Nope.

March 11th, 1983, Pasha Records released a 40-minute album that made rock history and opened the floodgates for other 80's hard rock bands.

Eight months later, and after radio and MTV played "Cum on Feel the Noize" 7 trillion times (just a guess) the iconic "Metal Health" album went to #1 on the Billboard charts. Think of how massive the Michael Jackson "Thriller" album was, yep Quiet Riot PASSED the gloved weirdo on the charts.

Where was Quiet Riot at when they found out that they were going to be #1? Right here in Rockford.

August 3rd at Prairie Street Brewhouse, it's Rock The Dock III and it will be the party of the summer. Come to celebrate Quiet Riot making history here in Rockford, Captain Jack's Birthday, and the fact the rock and roll lives forever thanks to these guys.
