The ineffably quirky British outfit 10cc had its roots in '60s pop -- bandmember Graham Gouldman had penned hits for the Yardbirds, the Hollies, and others -- giving it a solid grounding in songcraft. The members meshed their sophisticated songwriting skills with a loopy sense of humor for a string of hit singles ("Rubber Bullets," "I'm Not in Love," "Dreadlock Holiday," "The Things We Do for Love") that were alternately sweet and sardonic. In 1976, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme left the band to form their own duo, recording ambitious albums and producing high-profile videos for other acts. The remaining members carried on less successfully into the early '80s, though the ensuing decades saw sporadic reunions.
