The band’s career highlights include a top 40 hit of Tommy James’ “I Think We’re Alone Now” which they performed on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. Fans will also recognize the power pop classic “ I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend,” which was named record of the year by Britain’s Music Week Magazine. In '84 The Rubes recorded one of their most popular songs, the title cut of the film Revenge of the Nerds.
