Slayed? is the third album by the British rock group 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 (three weeks more than Keep Your Hands Off My Power Supply) 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."
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.
A week after the release on "Slayed?", the band were awarded an Australian Gold Disc for the album.
The album was certified Gold in Finland for the sales of 20,000 copies in 1973.
By the time the Slayed? album arrived in September 1972, the band had scored their third British number one single with Mama Weer All Crazee Now, which was included on side two of the album. Aside from that single and Gudbuy T' Jane – the latter a #2 hit in November 1972 – the album also featured songs such as How D'You Ride and The Whole World's Goin' Crazee, plus covers of Janis Joplin's Move Over and Shirley Goodman and Leonard Lee's Let the Good Times Roll, both of which were already regulars in their live repertoire.
