(February 2010) "Metal Guru" German picture sleeve by Ariola label Single by T.Rex from the album The Slider B-side "Thunderwing" / "Lady" Released 1972 Format Vinyl, 7" Genre Glam rock Length 2:25 Label T.Rex Wax Co. Writer(s) Marc Bolan Producer Tony Visconti T.Rex singles chronology "Telegram Sam" (1972) "Metal Guru" (1972) "Children of the Revolution" (1972) "Metal Guru" is a song by the British rock band T.Rex, written by Marc Bolan. It was the band's fourth (and final) number one on the UK Singles Chart when it topped the chart for four weeks in May-June 1972. It was also included on the album The Slider in 1972. Despite coming only ten months after the success of "Get It On", it failed to chart in the United States. The song reached #45 in Canada in July 1972. Bolan himself described the song's apparent religious references as this: "Is a festival of life song. I relate 'Metal Guru' to all Gods around. I believe in a God, but I have no religion. With 'Metal Guru', it's like someone special, it must be a Godhead. I thought how God would be, he'd be all alone without a telephone. I don't answer the phone any more. I have codes where people ring me at certain times."
