Quiet Riot is the self-titled debut studio album by Quiet Riot, released exclusively in Japan in 1977.[3] It features guitarist Randy Rhoads, who would later gain recognition for performing on Ozzy Osbourne's first two solo albums.

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".
