Cheap Trick

Profil:
Rockford, Illinois 1974 saw the formation of one of America's well known power-pop bands - Cheap Trick.

They became a success with their self-titled debut, in which they started off their defining sound; the catchiness of The Beatles with the speed and energy of Punk rock. The Los Angeles Times proclaimed: "Cheap Trick gained fame by twisting the Beatlesque into something shinier, harder, more American."
They have often been referred to in the Japanese press as the "American Beatles".

Most known for their tracks "Surrender", "I Want You To Want Me", "Dream Police" and "The Flame" - and did a cover of Big Star's "In The Street" for American sitcom That 70's Show (season 2 onwards) and also the theme tune to the American satirical late night television program The Colbert Report.

Surprisingly, for the age of the band the line-up hasn't changed a great deal. Also the Illinois State Senate has declared 1st April to be "Cheap Trick Day". They also took the 25th spot in VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
