So many of their hits were written by Leiber & Stoller that the song list from the musical, "Smokey Joe's Café" practically reads as a record of The Coasters greatest hits. Their songs have been covered by artists such as Leon Russell, Elvis Presley, Sly & the Family Stone, Frank Zappa, and even the Grateful Dead. Their first song to chart was "Down in Mexico," which much later would be featured in Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse film "Death Proof." The Coasters have gone on to chart 20 more times with hits like "Yakety Yak," "Along Came Jones," and "Poison Ivy."
