About Paul Revere and the Raiders
The American rock band Paul Revere and the Raiders was formed in the 1950s, and they released their first record, "Like, Long Hair," which was solely instrumental and managed to make it to number 38 on the Billboard charts. By 1965, the band was signed to a major label and began recording various songs in the style of garage rock. That year, the band released their second national hit, "Just Like Me," and they started regularly appearing on television shows like Dick Clark's "Where the Action Is," "Happening '68," and "It's Happening." During the rest of the 60s, Paul Revere and the Raiders continued to churn out a steady stream of hit songs, like "Hungry," "Kicks," "The Great Airplane Strike," "Him or Me – What's It Gonna Be?" and "Good Thing." By 1967, Paul Revere and the Raiders had three gold albums to their name, including "Just Like Us" and "Midnight Ride."
Their hits in the later 1960s included songs like "Ups and Downs," "Too Much Talk," "Mr. Sun, Mr. Moon," and "Cinderella Sunshine." As the public's tastes starting to change during this decade, Paul Revere and the Raiders had to change accordingly, and they came out with a psychedelic album in 1968 called "Something Happening." Throughout the decades to come, Paul Revere and the Raiders would evolve and adapt their music according to trends, and they still continued to record and perform.

Their album "Midnight Ride" also went gold, and included one of their most famous hits, "Kicks."
