Question Mark and the Mysterians • 96 Tears



Question Mark & the Mysterians o ? & the Mysterians es una agrupación musical estadounidense especializada en rock and roll formada en Flint, Michigan en 1962.
El grupo es bien conocido por su canción —ya un clásico de la música garage rock— llamada "96 Tears"(Noventa y seis lágrimas), grabada en 1966 y que alcanzó la posición #1 de las Billboard Hot 100.? & the Mysterians fueron quizás la primera banda en ser descrita como punk rock y también como el primer grupo de Rock latino en tener un éxito de audiencia general. El grupo se nombró así mismo a partir del filme de ciencia ficción japonés "The Mysterians", en el cual, alienígenas del destruido planeta Mysteroid arriban para conquistar la tierra.
El líder de la banda fue ? (o Question Mark, «signo de interrogación» en inglés), cuyo nombre real se supone es Rudy Martínez, pero quien legalmente cambió su nombre por ?. Su comportamiento excéntrico ayudó a establecer brevemente a la banda en la conciencia nacional. El alegó (y sigue alegando) ser un marciano, quien vivió con dinosaurios en una vida anterior, y nunca aparece en público sin gafas de sol. También afirma que "las voces" le dijeron que estaría interpretando "96 Tears" en el año 10,000.

///////////////////////////////

Question Mark and the Mysterians are an American garage rock band from Bay City and Saginaw in Michigan, who were initially active between 1962 and 1969. Much of the band's music consisted of electric organ-driven instrumentals, and an enigmatic image inspired by the science fiction film The Mysterians.[2] In addition, the band's sound was also marked by raw-resonating lead vocals of "?" (Question Mark), making Question Mark and the Mysterians one of the earliest groups whose musical style is described as punk rock. Through their music, the group was recognized as a template for similar musical acts to follow.[3]
The band was signed to Pa-Go-Go Records in 1966, and released its first, and most acclaimed single, "96 Tears", in the early part of the year. "96 Tears" became a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and propelled the group to a 15-month period of national prominence. Their debut album, 96 Tears followed. Though Question Mark and the Mysterians were unable to replicate their success with their later recordings, and are mistakenly deemed a "one-hit wonder", they did manage to reach the singles charts on five different occasions. In 1968, their label, Cameo-Parkway, was shut down for stock manipulation by the Securities Exchange Commission, taking the band's money and contract with them. After their disbandment in 1969, the band has regrouped and released additional material over the years.
