Detroit a.k.a. The Band Detroit, was a spinoff of rock group The Detroit Wheels. This revised version of that band was formed by Mitch Ryder as a successor to The Wheels in 1970. The only original Wheel in the group was the drummer Johnny “Bee” Badanjek; other members were guitarists Steve Hunter and Brett Tuggle, organist Harry Phillips and bassist W.R. Cooke. A single album was released by this grouping, a 1971 self-titled LP issued on Paramount Records (US #176 in 1972). They had a hit with their version of the Lou Reed – penned song “Rock & Roll”, which Reed liked enough to ask Steve Hunter to join his backing band. Ryder quit the group because of voice problems in 1972, and Detroit vocalist Rusty Day (formerly of the American Amboy Dukes and Cactus) took over his spot; without Ryder, the group floundered, and eventually broke up in 1974. (Text taken from Wikipedia)

Cirith Ungol did cover their song Rock ‘n’ Roll in their early years. That song was also included on Greg Lindstrom’s Heavy Rockin’ Raw compilation CD. Rock ‘n’ Roll is actually not a Detroit original, but originally by Lou Reed.
