How did four Mexican American teens from the projects hit end up on Billboard Magazine’s Top 100 and opening for The Beatles on the band’s 1965 U.S. tour? It all began when Robert “Rabbit” Jaramillo, Richard “Scar” Lopez and Joe “Yo Yo” Jaramillo teamed up with Frankie “Cannibal” Garcia to play R&B and Doo Wop in East L.A. Inspired by groups like the Temptations and The Olympics, the band was called “Cannibal and the Headhunters”, but Paul McCartney nicknamed them “the na na boys”, a takeoff on the chorus to the band’s biggest pop hit, “Land of a Thousand Dances”. The rest is rock-n-roll history.
