RARE BEAT - GARAGE ROCK AND PSYCHEDELIC
QUESTION MARK AND THE MYSTERIANS
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

? & the Mysterians were an American rock and roll band formed in Flint, Michigan in 1962. The group is best known for their song "96 Tears", a garage rock classic recorded in 1966. ? & the Mysterians were perhaps the first band to be described as punk rock, and also may be the first Latino rock group to have a general audience hit record. The group named itself after the 1957 Japanese science fiction film The Mysterians, in which aliens from the destroyed planet Mysteroid arrive to conquer Earth. The band's frontman was Question Mark, whose real name is believed to be Rudy Martinez but who legally changed his name to ?. His eccentric behavior helped to briefly establish the group in the national consciousness. He claimed (and still claims) to be a Martian who lived with dinosaurs in a past life, and he never appears in public without sunglasses. He also claims that "voices" told him he would still be performing "96 Tears" in the year 10,000. The Mysterians still play live in and around their home state of Michigan, and a documentary film about them is slowly being assembled. Titled Are You For Real, it will include footage from their forty years in the music business - from 1966 to the 1997 reformation and up to the present.
