Stupidity was the third album by Dr. Feelgood. It was released in September 1976, and was their first live album recording. Their mushrooming popularity was confirmed when Stupidity (1976) topped the UK charts. The album reached number 1 in the UK Albums Chart in October 1976 (for one week), and remained in that chart for nine weeks. It was the first ever live album to go to number 1 in the UK chart in its first week of release. It was Dr. Feelgood’s first and, to date, only recording to reach number 1, and appeared over eight months before their first single entered the corresponding UK Singles Chart – “Sneakin’ Suspicion” (June 1977). Along with Rock Follies in 1976, it reached the top spot in the UK without the benefit of a hit single.
