Cover versions

Prior to Rainbow, the Illinois rock band Head East recorded and released a cover version of the song on their 1978 eponymous album, reaching No. 46 on the Billboard Hot 100. Head East's version of this song was their highest charting single.

A year later, Rainbow recorded the song and released it as the first single from their 1979 album Down to Earth with Graham Bonnet on lead vocals. It was a top 10 hit single in the United Kingdom and was named the 82nd Best Hard Rock Song of All Time by VH1.[1] Rainbow's version was used in a 2009 T-Mobile advertisement filmed at Liverpool Street station in London[citation needed] and in the 2018 Netflix documentary Three Identical Strangers.

Other cover versions include those by South African all-female band Clout on their 1978 album Substitute, a.k.a. Clout, and by former Runaways vocalist Cherie Currie as a duet with her sister Marie Currie on the 1980 album Messin' with the Boys. Their version reached No. 95 on the Billboard Hot 100.[2]

Alcatrazz, also fronted by Graham Bonnet, covered the song on the album Live Sentence with Yngwie Malmsteen on guitar, and yet another Bonnet-fronted outfit, Impellitteri, recorded it for their 1988 debut album Stand in Line.

Brian May of Queen performed the song live on the Back to the Light tour in 1993, and it appears on the Live at the Brixton Academy multi-format release.
