Behind The Song

How The Romantics went from Motor City Rockers to MTV darlings

Straight out of Detroit Rock City, The Romantics made their first entry into the Billboard chart with a high-energy tune sung by their drummer. That song, “What I Like About You,” later became the subject of a high-profile lawsuit when it was used in a TV commercial…which made the band even more popular than when the song first was released in 1980. Get into the story of this great Motor City band in the new episode of the Behind The Song podcast. Watch the video episode and subscribe to the Behind The Song Youtube channel:
