Trivia: Sweet
  • Hipgnosis designed the cover of the Desolation Boulevard album.
  • Misattributed Song: * There's a strange misconception in some corners of the internet, shared by a surprising number of lyrics archives, that the Blue Öyster Cult recorded Ballroom Blitz. The fact that the Sweet recorded this and had the hit single does not stop it being attributed to the BOC. Nor does the fact it was written by Chinn and Chapman stop it being credited to Eric Bloom and Donald Roeser. OK, it sounds like something the BOC might have recorded or at least covered live - but they've never been anywhere near it. Consider the opening lyrics:
    Are you ready, Steve? Aha.
    Andy? Yeah! Mick? OK.
    Alright, fellas, let's Go!!
Strange for a band whose members are called Eric, Buck, Allen, Albert and Joey. Mick, Andy and Steve are, in reality, the first names of three of the Sweet.
