May 22, 2017 Record of the Day

The B-52’s took their name from the bouffant hairdos worn by female members, Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson. In 1977 they did their first public appearance at a Valentine’s Day party. They were an instant hit. In 1978 they released their first giant contribution to Rock N Roll with “Rock Lobster.” An original copy on their B-52’s record label is worth up to $100.00 today with its picture sleeve.
