The Trashmen's only notable hit was 1964's "Surfin' Bird". The single's album, Surfin' Bird, wasn't successful. The song, however, has been used in many movies and is generally known to be an earworm.

They reunited in the 1980s and played until the death of Steve Wahrer in 1989. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001. The group disbanded in 1967. The group lost favor in the 1970s but various groupings of singers using the name of The Vogues continued to sing into the new century. The song, however, has been used in many movies and is generally known to be an earworm. Also beginning in 1968, they had hits with recordings of three traditional pop music hits from the 1950s, "My Special Angel," "Till," and "No, Not Much". The single's album, Surfin' Bird, wasn't successful. As their sound was not in step with the trend in rock & roll, their fortunes dwindled, but in 1968, now signed with Reprise Records, they had another hit, "Turn Around, Look at Me," which reached #7 on the Billboard Charts.

The Trashmen's only notable hit was 1964's "Surfin' Bird". Two more hits, "Magic Town" and "The Land Of Milk and Honey," did not reach the same heights but still made Billboard's Top 40 in 1966. The group played surf rock with many elements from garage rock. Their first hit, "You're The One" (1965) rose to #4 on the Billboard charts and was followed by "Five O'Clock World" which reached the same #4 level. The group's lineup was Tony Andreason on lead guitar, Dan Winslow on guitar and singing, Steve Wahrer on drums and singing, and Bob Reed on bass. Originally, the group was called "The Val-Airs." After recording one song for Coral Records, "Laurie, My Love," they adopted the name "The Vogues." They soon signed a contract with the small Co & Ce Records label, run by Herb Cohen and Nick Cenci. The Trashmen were a rock and roll band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962. They consisted of Bill Burkette (lead baritone), Don Miller (baritone), Hugh Geyer (first tenor) and Chuck Blasko (second tenor).
