>“Come On Feel the Noize” is a hard rock song originally released by Slade in 1973.
Written by Jim Lea and Noddy Holder and produced by Chas Chandler, “Cum On Feel the Noize” was Slade’s fourth number one single in the UK and their first to enter straight at number one. As a single from Slade it was a follow-up to “Gudbuy t’Jane”, a #2-hit in the U.K., kept off the top notch by Chuck Berry’s novelty single “My ding-a-ling” and later again by another novelty hit, “Long haired lover from Liverpool” from 9 year old Little Jimmy Osmond.

“Cum On Feel the Noize” entered at the top slot in the U.K.charts, was quite a rare feat at the time and was the first time this had happened since The Beatles with “Get Back” in 1969. It went on to spend four weeks at the top of the chart in March 1973. Typical of Slade’s releases at the time, it fared less well in the USA where it would only peak at #98 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song actually inspired Kiss to create their popular trademark rock anthem “Rock and Roll All Nite”.
