Though the B-52’s first started in 1976, many fans first discovered them with 1989’s “Love Shack,” whose video was huge on MTV at the time, as was followup “Roam.” Both songs reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, propelling the album Cosmic Thing into the U.S. Top 5 and eventual multi-platinum status. A long time before that, the band’s self-titled debut album, released in 1979, featured re-recorded versions of earlier underground hits “Rock Lobster” (a future Family Guy favorite) and “52 Girls.” The B-52’s have a unique style influenced by New Wave with some ’60s rock, dance and surf music thrown into the mix; the three lead vocals by Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson often lead to a heck of a live show.
