According to the Merry Christmas Everybody Songfacts, this was based on a psychedelic song, "My Rocking Chair," which Noddy Holder wrote in 1967. In 1973 the Slade vocalist decided to convert it into a Christmas song after a night out drinking at a local pub. He and the band's bass player and co-writer Jimmy Lea camped out at Noddy's mother's house and got down to changing the lyrics to make them more Christmassy.

There are two artists which use this name 1. A glam rock band from England 2. A rapper 1. Slade is a glam rock / hard rock group from Wolverhampton, England in the West Midlands they were formed in 1966 by Noddy Holder (Lead vocal & Rhythm Guitar), Dave Hill (Lead guitar), Jim Lea (Bass) and Don Powell (Drums). The group started out as the N'Betweens and were mainly a R&B act. They changed their name to Ambrose Slade and later shortened it to just Slade. In the late 60's they hooked up with manager Chas Chandler who proved to be the missing link, convincing the group to use the heavier rock style with clapping hands and stamping feet which they had success with live. This change of direction paid off, and from 1971 to 1975, the band scored a huge number of hit albums and singles. During the heights of their success, Slade out-performed chart rivals like Wizzard, Sweet, T.Rex, Suzi Quattro, Smokie, Gary Glitter and even David Bowie. In the UK, they achieved 12 top five hits from 1971 to 1974, six of which topped the charts. In total, Slade had 17 top 20 hits between 1971 and 1976 including six #1s, three #2s and two #3s.And the evergreen Merry Xmas Everybody has reached the charts eight times since topping the charts in 1973 until 2006. When Slade's success faded in the end of 1970s the band still were able to release credible records.They returned to the UK charts in the early 1980 and even managed to enter the charts in the United States, where the song Run Runaway hit #20 thanks to interest from the band Quiet Riot's cover of the Slade song Cum On Feel The Noize. The classic line-up of Slade split up in 1992 although Dave Hill and Don Powell carried on. 2. Slade less commonly refers to Grady Slade, Jr, a Rap artist Read more on Last.fm.
