THE GRASS ROOTS : Midnight Confessions (1968)

So while watching the US version of The Office, an interesting tidbit of information came out during the "Booze Cruise" episode. The eccentric character, Creed Bratton, admitted (in a deleted scene) that he had played in the '60s group, The Grass Roots. I thought that was odd, considering that it was a real group. But even more odd was that it was true! Creed Bratton actually plays a fictional version of HIMSELF on the show, but he definitely got his start as the guitar player and vocalist for this '60s pop-rock band. I'm sure hardcore fans of The Office already know these details, but it IS always nice to make the discovery for oneself! Here is one of their best-known songs, with the prerequisite catchy chorus. Creed is on guitar and backing vocals.
