Since we should all be gettin our plans finalized for tonite (as we are).. we thought we'd give you little sumthin to dance to (pre rage waarm up or sumthin).. and who better to dance to than "the world's greatest party band" The B-52'S.. Enjoy!! Have a safe night..
"Rock Lobster" is The B-52's' first single, released in 1978 and in a longer version placed on the band's self-titled debut album, The B-52's, one year later.
The song "Rock Lobster" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list. "Rock Lobster" also appears at number 146 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of greatest songs.
Some have said "despite the song's self-consciously weird texture and silly lyrics about earlobes falling off and communal towel coordination, there's a thread of darkness weaving through it. Make no mistake: this is not a song with hidden meaning lurking below the surface. But its surface is a little more complicated than it seems to be at first."
Planet Claire, also off of their self-titled debut album is just as amazing as "Rock Lobster" but maybe hasn't received the praise it should.. How 'bout we start praisin it now..
