The band are perhaps best known for a string of modest hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including "Only a Memory", "A Girl Like You", and "Blues Before and After". The Smithereens have collaborated with numerous musicians, both in the studio (Suzanne Vega and Belinda Carlisle) and live (Graham Parker and The Kinks). The band's name comes from the catchphrase, "Varmint, I'm a-gonna blow you to smithereens!" made famous by the cartoon character Yosemite Sam.
