101 Number One song of the Day was recorded by a group who wanted to stay anonymous in their native country when they were starting out.   Why would a neophyte band want something like that?

That’s because they couldn’t get any radio airplay.  The airwaves were full of American and British acts but in Canada, groups from there were largely ignored.  Eventually, legislation was enacted giving native artists a certain percentage of the time that music was played.  But before that, a talented group named Chad Allen and the Expressions decided to leave their name off the label of their single called “Shakin All Over.”  That group would go on to have the number one song in America on this day in 1970.  By this time they were known by the name given to them by DJs after their release of Shakin All Over” – Guess Who – with today’s 101 number one song of the Day.   (American Woman)
