Quiet Riot is the debut studio album by the band of the same name, released in 1977.[3] It features guitarist Randy Rhoads and was released only in Japan.

Analyzing it decades later, music critic Martin Popoff said that the album was more "glam pop" than hard rock or glam rock.[1]

The song "Back to the Coast" was originally written by Rhoads and his brother Kelle when they were teenagers. It was originally called "West Coast Tryouts".
