ITT: Bands that make you feverently nostalgic for your teen years.
>inb4 "Wow, you must be 50 years old"
No, my parents just happened to expose me to a lot of obscure shit growing up.
But most teens who say "omg, I love old music!" probably don't know the B-52s, and are more familiar with the popular radio hits that have been overplayed for decades (Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't stop believin', hotel california, Won't get fooled again, "that teenage wasteland song")
But seriously, you'd probably never hear a teen say that IRL.
"I love bob marely 420 dude!" or "I love Lead zepplan omg!!11", you'd likely hear those, since that's music that receives lots of radio airplay. B-52s, not so much.
When I was about 12 and started high school I thought the B-52s were the coolest thing ever. Rock Lobster was one of the first songs I ever bought (must have been on itunes or some service like that), and I played it outloud without headphones in (I wanted everyone to hear how good it was) and people laughed at me. Especially the girls.
