October 17, 1973: Montrose released their debut record.

It introduced Sammy Hagar to the music world and it's recognized as one of the first American heavy metal records. Its influence on artists such as Iron Maiden, Van Halen and others can be heard by their cover versions of these compositions. Since Warner Bros. weren't sure how to promote them, the LP was a slow but steady seller throughout the 70's & 80's and eventually went platinum before it was voted the 4th Best Metal Album Of All Time by Kerrang!
