B52s

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

One of the amazing things about the B's is that every member of the group (original line-up) is essential and has had a distinct impact on their sound

All of their mid-late albums are worth spending some time with imo (apart from maybe the Cindy-less Good Stuff - but even that has Revolution Earth on it).


Love Topaz

Give Me Back My Man is one of their best songs; I prefer Wild Planet to their debut.

Orange popsicles and lemonaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaade (I just want to take my shirt off and swing it around my head when I hear that)


Yeah it's insane how infectious their blatant disregard to do anything but have the most fun is and how it comes out in everything they do and not even the blackest heart could break them down, not one bit.
