The Ink Spots
The Ink Spots
The Ink Spots were a popular vocal group whose works are featured in various Fallout games.
Career[edit | edit source]
The Ink Spots helped define the musical genre that led to rhythm & blues (R&B) and rock and roll, and the subgenre doo-wop. They and the Mills Brothers, another black vocal group of the 1930s and 1940s, gained much acceptance in the white community.
The Ink Spots formed in the early 1930s in Indianapolis. The original members were:
- Orville "Hoppy" Jones (b. February 17, 1902, Chicago, Illinois - d. October 18, 1944, New York City) (bass)
- Ivory "Deek" Watson (b. July 18, 1909, Mounds, Illinois - d. November 4, 1969, Washington, DC) (tenor)
- Jerry Daniels (b. December 14, 1915 - November 7, 1995, Indianapolis, Indiana) (tenor)
- Charlie Fuqua (b. October 20, 1910 - December 21, 1971, New Haven, Connecticut) (baritone)

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The original theme of Fallout was going to be "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire" but Black Isle Studios was unable to get the license, so it was scrapped. The song was then later used by Bethesda Softworks in Fallout 3.
