Rewind: 1972 Slayed? - Slade

Dedicated to Ralph
Weer Still Crazee After All Theeze Yeers!

Slayed? is the third album by Slade. It was released on 1 November 1972, and reached No. 1 on the UK charts. The album lasted on the UK charts for a total of 34 weeks, and was also their longest-charting album in the United States where it stayed on the charts for half a year despite barely reaching the Top 75.

The album contains two of the group's biggest hits, "Gudbuy t'Jane" and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now", and is consistently said by rock critics to be their "...greatest studio album."

The album is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

For the Record and Radio Mirror poll results of 1974, Slayed? peaked at #4 on the top ten list of best British albums.

The album was awarded a UK Silver Disc in early 1973.

During the band's Australian tour of early 1973, "Slayed?" went straight to number one, knocking "Slade Alive!" to #2 in the Australian chart. At this time, the band also had three singles in the top 50 chart.
