Their first single, "Rock Lobster," recorded for DB Records in 1978, was an underground success, selling over 2,000 copies in total, that led to the B-52's performing at CBGB and Max's Kansas City in New York City. Both this version of "Rock Lobster" and its B-side "52 Girls" are different recordings from those on their first album, and the early version of "52 Girls" is in a different key. The re-recorded version of "Rock Lobster" was released as a single
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.
Rock Lobster is on the B-52's first album in 1979 - and Love Shack was released on Cosmic Thing in 1989. All the songs on Cosmic Thing were written by the whole band, jamming together trying to kick-start their creativity in the late 1980's after the death of Ricky Wilson. When they were improvising lines for "Rock Lobster" in a jam session, he turned this into the line that we hear in the song. Joe from Bellingham, WaWhat a weird song huh? I first heard it on the radio in the late 90's, I thought it was a joke!
The B-52s celebrate 40th Anniversary with Summer’s Hottest Tour - The Life Tour: starring The B-52s and Boy George & Culture Club with special guest Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey.
