The Crew-Cuts were a vocal quartet from Toronto, that made a number of popular records that charted in the United States and worldwide. They named themselves after the then popular crew cut haircut, one of the first connections made between pop music and hairstyle. They were most famous for their recording of The Chords’ hit record, “Sh-Boom.” They all had been members of the St. Michael’s Choir School in Toronto, which also spawned another famous quartet, The Four Lads. A remix of their version of the song “Sh-Boom” was featured in the credits of the video game Destroy All Humans!. The original recording of their song “Sh-Boom” can also be heard on one of the in-game radio stations in Mafia II.
