Released on 24 September 1971, Electric Warrior is the second studio album by T. Rex (their sixth since their debut as Tyrannosaurus Rex in 1968). The album marked a turning point in the band’s sound, moving away from the folk-oriented music of the group’s previous albums and pioneering a flamboyant, pop-friendly take on electric rock & roll known as glam rock.

Retrospectively, Electric Warrior has received critical acclaim and is regarded as one of Marc Bolan’s best works. The album is regarded as a pivotal release of the glam rock movement. It had a profound influence on later musicians of different genres.

Electric Warrior reached No. 1 on the UK charts and became the best selling album of 1971. The single Get It On reached the Top 10 in the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Retitled Bang a Gong (Get It On) by the US record company, it also became the band’s only hit in North America.
