Rock Lobster

I haven't listened to this song in years. It still freaks me out a little bit. Respect.

Re: Rock Lobster

This clip is also from an Australian TV show called Countdown which ran for many years. Apparently, B52s hit it big in Australia before other countries, I don't know why but we really lapped up Rock Lobster.

Re: Rock Lobster

All time fave, love the B52s. This was the first song I heard from them, bought the 7" when a reissue hit the UK charts in 1986 (I was eleven then!).

IMHO Fred was one of the greatest frontmen in rock. There are some old B&W clips on youtube from some of their earliest gigs, those looked like fun times!

Re: Rock Lobster

If you like the B-52's check out Pylon. They were an Athens band that was around the same time and of course gained some fame after REM covered one of their songs and Peter Buck mentioned they were one of his favorite bands. I went to school in Athens and I remember a lot of the old school art crowd(dubbed "Townies")kind of snubbed the B-52's because they left Athens for NYC. I used to see Fred around town when he would come back to visit Athens.

Re: Rock Lobster

Absolutely fantastic and highly original song which they never bettered in my opinion!

I had the 1st album on cassette in 1984 and used to play RL over and over again as loud as my Ghetto Blaster would go, and it went pretty loud because I was living in a tiny little bedsit room at the time!
