B-52s, are an American new wave band, formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1976. Rooted in new wave and 1960s rock and roll, the group later straddled many genres, ranging from post-punk to pop rock. Their first single, "Rock Lobster," recorded for DB Records in 1978, was an underground success. The next single, "Love Shack", with its party vibe and colorful music video, became their first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching No. 3 in November 1989. The follow-up single, "Roam", also reached No. 3. In 2008 the band dropped the apostrophe from their name to become "The B-52s".
