The B-52's is the debut album by the Athens, Georgia-based new wave band the B-52's. The kitschy lyrics and mood, and the hook-laden harmonies helped establish a fanbase for the band, who went on to release several chart-topping singles.
The B-52s (styled as The B-52's prior to 2008) is an American new wave band formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1976. The original line-up consisted of Fred Schneider (vocals), Kate Pierson (vocals, keyboards), Cindy Wilson (vocals, percussion), Ricky Wilson (guitar), and Keith Strickland (drums, guitar, keyboards). Ricky Wilson died from AIDS-related illness in 1985, and Strickland switched from drums to lead guitar. The band also added touring members for albums and live performances.
Produced by Nile Rodgers. I hear a wind Whistling air Whispering in my ear. Boy mercury shooting through every degree Oh girl dancing down those dirty and dusty trails Take it hip to hip rocking through the wilderness Around the world the trip begins with a kiss. Roam if you want to, roam around the world Roam if you want to, without wings without wheels Roam if you want to, roam around the world Roam if you want to, without anything but the love we feel

The B-52s influence cuts a wide path through much of so-called 'modern rock' - from the low-fi efforts of nouveau garage bands to the retro-hip of ultra-lounge, to the very core of dance music itself. We just did our own thing, which was a combination of rock 'n 'roll, funk, and Fellini, and game show host, and corn, and mysticism," says Fred. It is indeed all these things (and much more). In 2008 the B-52s released their first new album in 16 years, the aptly titled Funplex.
