The Spongetones, formed in 1981, are a power pop band from Charlotte, North Carolina. They formed from a Beatles cover act that had been playing at a local Charlotte bar. Very much influenced by the British Invasion, the Spongetones carried on the musical genre through acclaimed original songwriting, jangle pop riffs, and lilting vocals of Beatlesque quality. In his 2007 book, Shake Some Action, John Borack rated the Beat and Torn album at number 25 of his Top 200 Power Pop Albums of all time, comparing the album to early Beatles and The Searchers, calling the album "simply wonderful."
