1971: Slade, one of the most successful British bands of the 1970s, score the first of their six UK number one records with "Coz I Luv You". The mis-spelt title became a trademark for the band, which caused a great deal of concern by school teachers in Great Britain.

1974: Randy Bachman, the former lead guitarist for The Guess Who, enjoyed a number one song with his new band, Bachman- Turner Overdrive. Randy stuttered through the lyrics of "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" on a demo recording as a private joke about his brother Gary, who had a speech impediment. The record company liked that take better than the non-stammering version and released it. The song not only gave the band their third US top thirty hit and a #2 in the UK, Gary Bachman stopped stuttering.
