REO Speedwagon formed in Champaign, Illinois in the late 1960's. However, they didn't begin to achieve significant success until 1980. That was when they released Hi Infidelity. The album was a huge hit for the band, peaking at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Out of the four singles released from the album, REO got their first of two #1's on the Hot 100, it was "Keep On Loving You". Their next #1 came in 1985 with "Can't Fight This Feeling". It came from their 1984 album, Wheels Are Turnin' and remained at the top of the Hot 100 for three weeks in March, 1985.
