The Knack

Today I decided to listen to the Knack's "Frustrated," and I was struck by how much it sounds like those bands you're always hearing about, especially the Strokes and that band on the iPod commercial (not U2). I read something about the Knack recently, but I don't hear them mentioned that often in discussions about this recent rock movement that has been going on the last few years. I wonder if that is because the Knack were derivative at the time or if people think of the Knack as one-hit wonders. Whatever the case, they were pretty good for a while there. For my money, at least.
