OF NOTE: Robert Lee Balderrama,and Frank Rodriguez, original guitarist, original keyboardist and respectively of ? & the Mysterians, have an historical significance which is quite clear; credited with creating and originating the musical genre 'garage rock/punk' in the early 1960's. As Steve Huey of All Music Guide states, "It only took one song, the organ-driven number one smash "96 Tears," to make ? & the Mysterians into garage rock legends…the Mysterians sound helped lay down an important part of the garage rock blueprint…they were one of the first Latino rock groups to have a major hit…one of the prime suspects in the evolution of garage rock into early punk." facebook
