Slade's seasonal classic 'Merry Xmas Everybody' has been a perennial favorite in England since its release in December of 1973. Believe it or not, after four decades, the song stands to make an estimated £800,000 in royalties this year. That's a little over $1.3 million in U.S. dollars!
Q) This British group was the most successful band in the UK in the 1970's with 17 Top 20 hits and six #1 songs between 1971 and 1976. But they only cracked the Top 20 in the US once and that wasn't until 1984. What group?
