(Jubilee Guilty Pleasure!) Video of the Moment #828: The B52s

By on Monday, 4th June 2012 at 8:00 pm

Editor’s note: do not adjust your screen. Yes, we’re airing some of our (and some of your!) favourite song guilty pleasures in video form this Jubilee weekend. The bands were featuring are largely not the kind we write about here on TGTF, but we wanted to do something new and cool over this 4-day weekend. Come along for the crazy ride and enjoy.

Athens, Georgia’s most globally famous export is R.E.M. but the B52s come in as a close second. The band – with larger than life personalities individually and even louder outfits and hair – didn’t have much luck with the charts until ‘Love Shack’, an ode to the cabin in the woods where they first thought of one of their first singles, ‘Rock Lobster’. When they filmed the video, they had a then unknown RuPaul dancing in the background. Get your best beehive ready and watch the video below.
