The Young Rascals, later known as simply The Rascals, were an American Rock band out of Garfield, NJ, that came to the attention of fans in the mid 1960s. Their first hit was the 1965 release, "Good Lovin'", written by Rudy Clark and Arthur Resnick. The band was made up by Eddie Brigati on vocals, Felix Cavaliere on keyboards, Gene Cornish on guitar, and Dino Danelli on drums. Many of their songs were written by Brigati and Caraliere, including "Groovin'", a song that spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967. The song was rerecorded for an album of the same name. This is the publicity video for "Groovin'".

The band had more hits to come, including"How Can I Be Sure" in 1967, "People Got To Be Free" and "Beautiful Morning" in 1968. That is the same year they started going simply by The Rascals. In 1997, The Rascals were inducted into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame.
