Question Mark & The Mysterians is an American rock band formed in 1962 in Michigan. They are best known for their hit single “96 Tears,” which reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1966. The band’s style is a mix of rock and roll and garage rock, with a heavy influence of R&B and soul. They are considered to be one of the pioneering bands of the garage rock genre and have been cited as an influence by many other artists. For the design of the T-shirt we have taken the design of the German 7″ of “Girl you captivate me” from 1967 in the position of the question mark and the brand name. We designed this t-shirt in two colors, black and white.

Question Mark & The Mysterians were part of the Chicano rock movement in the 1960s, which was a subgenre of rock music that emerged from the Mexican-American community in the Los Angeles area. The band, which is of Mexican-American origin, was one of the first Chicano rock bands to achieve mainstream success. They blended elements of rock and roll, R&B and soul with traditional Mexican music to create a unique sound that resonated with the Mexican-American community. The band was heavily influenced by the civil rights movement and aimed to empower and give a voice to the Mexican-American community. It was an important cultural movement that helped to pave the way for greater representation and visibility of Mexican-American artists in the music industry.
Question Mark & The Mysterians' hit single "96 Tears" was a big hit in the Chicano community and helped to break down barriers for Mexican-American artists in the music industry. The band continues to be celebrated for their contributions to the Chicano rock movement, and are considered trailblazers for Chicano rock and roll in the United States.
