Question Mark and the Mysterians

The song “96 Tears” was released in 1966 by Question Mark and the Mysterians on their album “96 Tears.” It was written by Question Mark (Rudy Martinez) and hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. I like the organ part and the lyrics. Some say it was the first garage band record and helped launch the punk music movement. Burt and I saw the band perform 96 Tears at Bumbershoot several years ago.
