Slade is een Britse rockgroep, die in het midden van de jaren zeventig in Europa en ook in Nederland zeer populair was: in de jaren 1971 tot en met 1974 had de groep 9 Top 10 hits. Slade was afkomstig uit de Midden-Engelse industriestad Wolverhampton en bestond uit:
Noddy Holder, zang en gitaar

Dave Hill, gitaar

Jim Lea, basgitaar, gitaar, piano, viool

Don Powell, drums

In de jaren tachtig en negentig scoorde de groep nog enkele bescheiden hits maar het grote succes was verdwenen.
De zaken liepen zo slecht dat Dave Hill als chauffeur op bruiloften ging werken; Noddy Holder werd door AC/DC gevraagd om hun overleden zanger Bon Scott op te volgen, maar hij sloeg het aanbod af.

De groep treedt nog steeds op al is er weinig over van de oorspronkelijke bezetting.


Songtekst

Well alright ev'rybody, let your hair down
want to see ev'rybody up off their seat,
clap your hands stamp your feet, get down with it,
I say a-get down get with it and do the jerk.
Come on baby I'm gonna watch ev'rybody work
I said a-come on baby watch ev'rybody do the dance
I said get down and get with it, it's been a long long time
yea yea yea I'm gonna watch ev'rybody move around
I said a-come on baby, watch ev'rybody make some time
Then get down and get with it - it's alright yea yea yea
oh my my my my, oh baby it's alright oh my my my my
Ev'rybody raise both your hands in the air, ev'rybody ev'rywhere
I said a-clap your hands, ev'rybody clap your hands, yea yea yea
oh, my my my my, ev'rybody clap your hands oh my my my my my

Want to see ev'rybody get your boots on, ev'rybody ev'rywhere
I said a-stamp your feet, come on and stamp your feet, yea
yea, yea, yea, oh my my my my (hoo!)
Ev'rybody stamp your feet, oh my my my my

Want to see ev'rybody get up off their seat
Clap your hands, stamp your feet, make it
Get down and get with it,
I said get down and get with it
I said get down get with it baby yea yea yea

I said a-stamp your feet yea, listen to the beat baby
yea yea yea oh my my my my
Ev'rybody stamp your feet, oh my my my my

I want ev'rybody to say they feel alright.
