They were a group of Scottish teenagers who picked their name after a dart they threw at a map landed on Bay City, Michigan. They slowly built up a following in the UK in the early 1970s with a series of goofy (but extremely catchy) songs, and in 1975 they hit Number One in America with their hit "Saturday Night," which (bizarrely enough) inspired the Ramones to write "Blitzkrieg Bop." A handful more hits followed and they even had a variety show on NBC for a few months in 1978, but as was inevitable, they completely collapsed by the early 1980s.
