Music I Like: 96 Tears - ? and the Mysterians

Another one from when I was a kid. It's hard to tell from this clip, but ? and the Mysterians were Hispanic, one of the first successful Hispanic rock groups, although that success was relatively short-lived.

One of those PBS "music of the 'sixties" shows they have on during their interminable pledge drives had them on doing "96 Tears" and they were as strange today as they were in 1966.

Great garage band song.

Love it. Was it a one-hit wonder.

I think they had some regional hits, but "96 Tears" was their only national success.

I saw them once, I think.
