Album: 96 Tears
. . .
Has there ever been more garage-rock thing than a band named “? and the Mysterians” doing a #1 single called “96 Tears?”
I’m pretty sure that it could only have happened in 1966, when rock ‘n’ roll was king and groups of kids from all over the country could suddenly have their weird little song on the radio, no matter how unpolished it was, just as long as it was fun and intense.
