Kevin DuBrow, the lead singer for '80s rock band Quiet riot, died of an accidental cocaine overdose last month, a Las Vegas coroner said Monday.

Clark County coroner spokeswoman Samantha Charles confirmed the cause after toxicology results were received, the Associated Press reported this morning.

The 52-year-old Kevin DuBrow was found dead in his home November 25.

"The cause is cocaine intoxication," Charles said.

Quiet Riot was best known for "Cum on Feel the Noize" in 1983 on the album Metal Health, the first by a metal band to reach No. 1 on the Billboard chart.

Kevin DuBrow was never one who felt he needed to hide his appreciation for drugs. His most recent album with the band was titled "Rehab."

An inspiration for Amy Winehouse, perhaps?
