The dude who sings for the B-52s has always bugged me. Devo, on the other hand, is cool. Are they not men? They are Devo!

When I was young and insufferable I would have claimed to like Devo better because it seemed smarter. But in my heart I always prefer pure pop goodness to "interesting". B52s for the win.

Ugh. Yet another case of me voting "none of the above".

Gino said...

B-52's - but only Rock Lobster and the Cosmic Thing album... the rest of the stuff didn't totally click with me.

Brian said...

Well if you held a gun to my head and made me pick one...

...I've been to way to many college parties down south to ever want to hear the b-52s ever again...

For me the early 80's is all about the metal...

May I cast a write in vote for Camper Van Beethoven or They Might Be Giants?

Take the skinheads bowling, take them bowling....
