The Ballroom Blitz (1973)

“The Ballroom Blitz” (on some releases “Ballroom Blitz”) is a song written by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman and originally recorded by the British rock band Sweet (then known as The Sweet).

This song was inspired by an incident in 1973 when the band was performing at the Grand Hall in Kilmarnock, Scotland and were driven offstage by a barrage of bottles.

  1. I always preferred “Fox On The Run” over this tune. Just for the fact that I have heard so many covers of it that range from Rock, Pop, and Metal.
