With a solid place in history as becoming the first Metal band to crack the top five, Quiet Riot helped to usher in a new wave of Metal that showed that it could be a commercially successful entity. They helped to usher in a new era of Pop Metal which would run rough shot over the next decade. Although they helped to bring it in with their successful album, Metal Health, they never did come close to that level again and essentially imploded within the industry.

Could never stand these guys and their trashy music. NO WAY.

One smash hit album, and that was it. Quiet Riot may have carved a little niche for themselves in Metal history with "Metal Health", and good for them, but they never had another hit album. They were a flash in the Metal pan, nothing more. I do not forsee an induction for Quiet Riot, and you can pretty much take that to the bank.
