The Jive Bombers were an American R&B group from New York City.


The Jive Bombers consisted of members of two previous vocal groups, Sonny Austin & the Jive Bombers and The Palmer Brothers. They first recorded under the name The Sparrows in 1949 for Coral Records, and changed their name to The Jive Bombers in 1952 to record for Citation Records.[1] Their 1957 Savoy Records single “Bad Boy”, co-written by Avon Long and Lil Hardin, was a hit in the U.S., peaking at #7 on the Black Singles chart and #36 on the Billboard Hot 100.[2] The song has since been covered by The Escorts, Mink DeVille, Ringo Starr, Sha Na Na, and others, and was used in the 1990 film Cry-Baby.
