Music for Mondays: B-52’s ‘Rock Lobster’

B-52's Rockin' the Lobster, Summer, 1979

The B-52’s “Rock Lobster” was first recorded in 1978 and became a small scale success. Soon after, the band signed to Warner Bros. Records , re-recorded the tune, and it appeared on their 1979 debut L.P. where it went on to find greater mainstream glory (US Billboard charts #56.)

Have a rollicking Monday and enjoy this early New Wave classic. It’s funny, even I think of this song as an 80’s staple but it belongs to the 70s. It’s time we reclaim it!
