Scooter are considered the most successful single-record German act with 23 top ten hits. The band is currently composed of members H.P. Baxxter, Michael Simon, and Philip Speiser. Although most of the band's early recordings are in the styles of Happy Hardcore or Hard Trance, Scooter have experimented with other dance genres such as Hardstyle and Jumpstyle, and occasionally Hip Hop, Hard Rock and House. Scooter's trademark sound features spoken or shouted vocals, pitch-shifted chorus vocals and live performance elements such as crowd samples. Among their more well-known hits are "Hyper Hyper", "Move Your Ass!", "Fire", "How Much Is The Fish?", "Posse (I Need You On The Floor)", "Ramp! (The Logical Song)", "Nessaja", "Weekend!", "Maria (I Like It Loud)", "One (Always Hardcore)", and "Jumping All Over the World".

At that time, Mr. Rossi preferred to call himself Mike after one of his second names. In 1966, the band changed their name to "The Traffic", shortly thereafter to "The Traffic Jam" (see [Invalid Artist]). The lineup consisted of Lancaster, Rossi, John Coghlan (drums) and Roy Lynes (keyboard). A year later, the band changed name once again to "The Status Quo". Rick Parfitt (guitar) joined the band. Their first hit record, "Pictures of Matchstick Men", was released. "The" was omitted from the name of the band in 1969, known thereafter as just "Status Quo"
