Shocking Blue were a Dutch rock band from The Hague that existed from 1967 to 1974. The initial line-up consisted of:
- Robbie van Leeuwen (vocals, guitar)
- Fred de Wilde (vocals)
- Klaasje van der Wal (bass)
- Cor van Beek (drums)
They had a hit world-wide with the song "Venus", which later brought success to British girl band Bananarama in the 1980s, and Japanese singer Yoko Nagayama in 1986.
Constant line-up changes eventually caused the break-up of the group in 1974.
