Quiet Riot - Mama Weer All Crazee Now


Quiet Riot - Mama Weer All Crazee Now - About the song


The song was originally titled "My My We're All Crazy Now." The title was changed by their manager Chas Chandler, and the intentional misspelling became a Slade trademark years before Prince adopted a similar convention. Some of their other hits were "Look wot You Dun," "Cum On Feel The Noize" and "Skweeze Me Pleeze Me."

The American metal band Quiet Riot broke big with a cover of Slade's "Cum On Feel The Noize" in 1983. For their next album, they did "Mama Weer All Crazee Now," issuing it as the first single. It reached #51, marking their last Hot 100 appearance. "We were already getting the stigma of, 'You had a hit with somebody else's song,'" their drummer, Frankie Banali said:

"I could see the writing on the wall coming on that one."
