The Honeycombs were an English beat/pop group, founded in 1963 in North London, best known for their chart-topping 1964 hit, the million selling "Have I the Right?"

The band featured Honey Lantree on drums, one of the few female drummers in bands at that time.

Have I the Right?" was the d├ębut single and biggest hit of British band The Honeycombs.

It was composed by Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, who had made contact with The Honeycombs, a London-based group, then playing under the name of The Sheratons,  in the Mildmay Tavern in the Balls Pond Road in Islington, where they played a date. Howard and Blaikley were impressed by the group's lead vocalist, Dennis D'Ell, and the fact that they had a female drummer, Ann ('Honey') Lantree.

The group were looking for material to play for an audition with record producer Joe Meek,  and they played the songs Howard and Blaikley had just given them. Meek decided to record one of them, "Have I the Right?", there and then. Meek himself provided the B-side, "Please Don't Pretend Again".
