Quiet Riot - A misunderstanding about little women

Band name Quiet Riot - Little women
Los Angeles, California is the home of this heavy metal/hard rock band.

Thanks to a radio interview with the band in 1979, we know how the name Quiet Riot came about. Singer Kevin DuBrow was talking to Rick Parfitt of the British band Status Quo and told Parfitt that he intended to call the band Little Women. To which Parfitt replied that he himself would prefer a band with the name Quite Right. But because Londoner Rick pronounced the two words with a heavy Cockney-accent, the American thought Parfitt had said Quiet Riot.

Active: 1973-1979; 1982-1989; 1991-2003; 2004-2007; 2010-present, USA
