During the 1960s many American rock bands left a mark on popular music. During that period rock music established itself as a permanent fixture in musical history. The band The Lovin' Spoonful, led by songwriter John Sebastian, created many memorable songs. "(You and Me and) Rain on the Roof) is one example. The song reached number ten on the pop/rock charts at that time. The band itself was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
