    I remember seeing this guy on TV aged 7 and he had "Yob" printed on his guitar.
    My dad said it's because he was a "backward-boy", so a bad Boy became known as a Yob.

    I don't know if the word Yob or yobbo existed before Slade?

    Eddie.

    I still reckon if they had a proper guitar hero they would have been bigger than AC-DC.

    I think this one (Peter Gabriel) would challenge for top spot;

    Funny, I always thought that they were a lot older than that. :lol:

    The expression "yob" was in use for decades before Slade, I think it dates back to before the war.

    FWIW I saw Slade live in the Marquee Club in London before they starting having hits. (1970 I think it was), They were a proper rock band then. Strangely the support band that night was Yes.

    BTW - Is that a big Christmas song in the US like it has been in the UK since 1634 AD?
    ALSO - Is it illegal to say Christmas in the US?

    Yob existed long before Slade and it was "backwards-speak" for boy.
