  CMT.com : The Knack : Biography
With its leadoff single, "My Sharona," the Knack climbed both the album and singles charts (eventually selling millions of copies around the globe), gained wide commercial acceptance, and regenerated the power pop scene that had laid dormant for half a decade.

  Rough Edge: The Knack CD Reviews
Too bad the Knack's meteoric rise and fall and their instant labeling as a bubble gum band prevented them from selling more records than they really should have.

 His beat took the Knack to the top of the pops - Obituaries - smh.com.au
The Knack's instant rise to fame and fortune - My Sharona was their first single, their debut album sold 6 million copies - and equally rapid descent into oblivion means they will always be remembered for their one huge hit while setting a benchmark of sorts.
Thus he focused the Knack as a retro-yet-contemporary band, their short songs and short hair, white shirts and skinny ties placing them outside the arena that rock then favoured in the US.
By the 1981 album Round Trip, the Knack were a spent force and Gary, already hostile towards Fieger as he believed he was due a portion of the My Sharona publishing rights for his distinctive drumming, quit the band.

 The Knack - Virgin Radio
The Knack are a Los Angeles-based rock band that rose to fame with their first single, "My Sharona", an international hit in 1979 (see 1979 in music).
Many music critics of the era disliked disco, which dominated the music industry at the time, and were, at best, coolly receptive to other developing genres like punk rock, hip hop and heavy metal music.
As of 2005, The Knack are still active and play at various venues.

Forming in Los Angeles in the late '70s, the Knack (Doug Fieger, vocals/guitar; Berton Averre, lead guitar; Prescott Niles, bass; and Bruce Gary, drums) were neither punk nor rock, but pure simple pop, standing out among the musical dross that littered the Sunset Strip.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Get the Knack, The Knack, CD
Tight, hook-filled, and catchy as all get-out, the Knack's songs were pure pop rock: Leader Doug Fieger's lyrics focused chiefly on classic Top 40 fare -- mainly girls, girls, and more girls -- while his sneering delivery and antagonistic attitude balanced the band's pop confections with just the right amount of bite.
Elsewhere, a relatively faithful cover of Buddy Holly's "Heartbeat" showed that the Knack's roots extended further than their new wave skinny-tie image would indicate.
The Knack attempted to update the Beatles sound for the new wave era on their debut.

Fans had been getting The Knack on the West Coast with frenzied live performances long before GET THE KNACK seemingly took over the world for that brief moment in 1979.
What attracted the fans and the stars for that matter (Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Eddie Money all jumped onstage with the band in the late '70s) was the absolute hedonism of the band's percolating power pop.
