Two New Jersey towns are renaming streets in honor of the Isley Brothers, the legendary R and B group behind hits like
Shout, Twist and Shout and It’s Your Thing.
They first hit the charts in 1959 with Shout, a song later immortalized in the movie Animal House and also used as a rallying cry at sporting events.
Ron and Ernie Isley are expected to attend separate ceremonies Thursday in the two neighboring towns of Teaneck and Englewood outside New York City, where they lived during the band’s heyday in the ’60s.
The group originally came from Cincinnati and at one time included five brothers.
