Bands of Brothers

The Proclaimers

Scottish twins Charlie and Craig Reid hijacked American radio in 1993 with the inescapable single “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” which hit No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- despite the fact that several lines are unintelligible due to the brothers’ thick accents. The song had been a hit in the U.K. four earlier, but The Proclaimers didn’t break the U.S. until their music was featured in the Johnny Depp movie “Benny and Joon.” —Jeff Royer
