From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The Coasters are a rock and roll vocal group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s which mixed comedy with impeccable singing. Beginning with "Searchin'" and "Young Blood," their most memorable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team of Leiber and Stoller: "Yakety Yak", "Along Came Jones" and "Charlie Brown".[1] Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo wop legacy through the 1960s.
