There have been several bands with this name: 1. The Knack was a Los Angeles-based rock band, via Detroit, that rose to fame with their first single, "My Sharona", an international hit in 1979. The power pop of "My Sharona", coupled with the band's retro 60s look, earned the band comparisons to The Beatles (although the band themselves thought the 'New Beatles' label was tongue-in-cheek humor). Music critics hated disco, which dominated the music industry at the time, and were, at best, coolly receptive to other developing trends like punk rock, hip hop and heavy metal music.
