Answers

1. “Leader of the Pack.” For years it was claimed a motorcycle was driven into the studio to get the right sound effects.

2. This studio group had a big hit in 1975 with “Fly, Robin, Fly,” which created a problem because producers had to round up actual entertainment musi- cians for the public to see.

4. No. “Smokestack Lightning” at No. 2 on the charts in 1991 was as close as they got.

5. Bruce Springsteen, in 1982. The song has been covered by many, including Bette Midler and Aretha Franklin.
