The Troggs were a British band at the time of the britpop phenomenon. Led by a great singer-songwriter, Reg Presley, they produced strong, blues-based pop. There songs were huge hits ... for other people.
For example, who can forget Wet, Wet, Wet's seemingly endless sojourn in the charts with love is in the air. And Wild Thing has been successful for everyone from Jimi Hendrix to The Goodies.

So how can we explain their lack of commercial success? Perhaps it is in the name. At first you might think, "What is wrong with the name 'Presley'?" (see Elvis Presley – Elvis: 30 #1 Hits). However there have been other successful Elvisses: Elvis Costello and Elvis Crespo spring to mind.
