Subject: Do The B-52s Suck?

Written By: Full_House_Fan on 02/15/05 at 4:55 pm

Oops! I vote YES!!!!!!! THEY DO SUCK!!!!!!!!!  I didn't mean "NO!" they don't. B-52s are a cornball act.

They're OK

IMO, most of their songs are either hit or miss. Though I'll admit that I like "Rock Lobster", "Private Idaho", "Roam", and "Strobe Light".

No! They were cool! I loved "Roam" and "The Deadbeat Club".

once, on acid, my roommate locked me in the closet and blared 'rock lobster' at the door. i can't look at a picture of a B-52 bomber and not think of lobsters crawling from the darkness.  >:(

LOL  What a mean thing to do.  Is he aware of your Rock Lobster pain?  It reminds me of frat parties of course this was back in 92.

That's what best friends are all about, right?  When I read your post I got an image in my head of some guy standing outside a closet cracking up with the speaker right against the door.  I'm cracking up right now, but I know that wasn't funny for you at the time.

I always like the B52s. I always thought they were funny. I remember trying to convince this girl in school that there really was a song called "Rock Lobster." I wonder if she has ever heard it yet.

They are ok.  A bit too cheesy for my taste!  ::)  ;D  All though Roam and Love Shack are good songs.

Uh, send a different email address of yours (assuming you have one) and open the email.  It will tell you what to do.

Since you asked...I n my opinion, they suck! I do however apologize to those who like them...it's nothing personal :)

Written By: Chrisrj on 02/16/05 at 9:13 pm

Songs I know well and like:

Love Shack
Roam
Good Stuff

I'm sure there are more, but I definitely don't think they suck.

aol and yahoo accounts tend to lump the confirmation email in their junk filters.  Not sure why, wish their support people would let me know why I'm on their bad list.  If you can't find it in your junk filter, send me an email at chuck@worcestermass.com and tell me the account name and I'll enable it for you.

and for the record, the B-52's most definitely do not suck.  John Lennon helped discover them, and they were a member of the CBGB's scene.  Fun party music, not meant to be taken overly serious.  If you only know the songs from their Cosmic Thing album (Roam, Deadbeats Club, Love Shack), you don't know the best B-52's music. 

Plus you gotta love a group, who had a member record a solo effort with a song featuring lyrics like "There's a monster in my pants, and it does a nasty dance!"

For some reason, yes I do like them. Their music is original. For a band that started out by playing in an Athens, GA college night club they ain't bad.

  Just watched them on NBC's "Up all night", a January 1980 edition of SNL. They performed "Rock Lobster" and sounded good to me. You know what else? No "Lip Sync" ala Jessica Simpson. ;D
