Slade (originally known as The N'Betweens, then Ambrose Slade, and now Slade II) are an English glam rock band from Wolverhampton/Walsall. They rose to prominence during the early 1970s with 17 consecutive top 20 hits and six number ones.
They were the first act to achieve three singles enter at number one; all six of the band's chart-toppers were penned by Noddy Holder and Jim Lea. Their best-selling single, "Merry Xmas Everybody", has sold in excess of one million copies.
Following an unsuccessful move to the United States in 1975, Slade's popularity waned but was unexpectedly revived in 1980 when they were last-minute replacements for Ozzy Osbourne at the Reading Rock Festival. The band later acknowledged this to have been one of the highlights of their career.
A number of diverse artists have cited Slade as an influence, including Nirvana, the Smashing Pumpkins, the Ramones, Sex Pistols, the Undertones, the Runaways, the Clash, Kiss, Mötley Crüe, Poison, Def Leppard, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot, the Replacements, Cheap Trick and Oasis.
