    Their song "Dirty Water" is played at Fenway Park after every Red Sox victory. It's one of numerous great songs on the original "Nuggets" album.

    According to the Wikipedia Entry, they were formed in Los Angeles. In the video clip below, the drummer is Dick Dodd (former Mouseketeer) and the keyboard player is Larry Tamblyn (whose brother Russ Tamblyn played the leader of the Jets in "West Side Story" and whose niece (Russ's daughter) is Amber Tamblyn, whom you might remember from "Joan of Arcadia" or "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants").

    Here's the Standells doing "Dirty Water" on the Mike Douglas Show:

    Sorry. I'm not ready to talk about the death and unhappiness at the Boston Marathon just yet. So I'm writing about the Standells.
