Quotes & Highlights

See the B52s’ “Love Shack” music video.


From the timeless gems of “Rock Lobster,” “Planet Claire” and “Private Idaho” to the more recent classics of “Channel Z,” “Love Shack” and “Roam,” the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time the music begins.

In 2008 the B-52s released their first new album in 16 years, the aptly titled Funplex. With its primal guitar hooks, driving drums and the B-52s’ unmistakable vocal style, Funplex is instantly recognizable as quintessential and contemporary B-52s. Newsweek magazine declared, “Like a sonic shot of vitamin B12, the dance floor beats, fuzzy guitar riffs and happy, shiny lyrics keep the energy going.”

The B52s are  Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson, Fred Schneider and Kate Pierson.
