Founded in Berkeley by junior high buddies, Tommy Dunbar and Jon Rubin, The Rubinoos are one of the seminal power pop artists of the 1970s. In 1977 they hit the top 40 with a cover of Tommy James’ “I Think We’re Alone Now.” In 1978 they followed it with the power pop classic “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”, which was named record of the year by Britain’s Music Week Magazine. In '84 The Rubes recorded one of their most popular songs, the title cut of the film Revenge of the Nerds. Several albums, tours and decades later The Rubes can still crank out the pop gems.
