The Knack

  • The Knack is a Los Angeles-based rock quartet that rose to fame with their first single, "My Sharona", an international hit in the second half of 1979.
  • The power pop of "My Sharona", coupled with the band's "retro" 1960s look, earned the band comparisons to the early Beatles.
  • Members of The Knack have filed a lawsuit against popular rap music group Run DMC for copyright infringement. The lawsuit alleges that the defining guitar riff from "My Sharona" was used without permission in the Run DMC track "It's Tricky" from their 1986 album Raising Hell. The amount of damages sought is currently unspecified.
