    All the more reason to vote for rock lobster then, it's a very popular song for some bizarre reason



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,361 ✭✭✭✭Kolido


    I never heard of it until it was nominated for tournament (or maybe a walrus) here. Pretty crap song as are the band in general. I researched a bit more and found this, Quote  "Rock Lobster" was well-received by critics, and went on to place at No. 147 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list in December 2004."

    So going by that alone, I would call it vastly overrated, but hey, what do it know :)

    But if I've never herd of it I can't personally say that it's overrated. I could do a bit of research on it but do I have the time?

    Rock Lobster is great, as are the B-52's in general, and you've all just got shocking taste in music. 🙄

    Wham! - Last Christmas

    The Darkness - I Believe in a Thing Called Love

    Duran Duran - Rio

    Journey - Don't Stop Believing. Tough one this, I despise Simply Red, but apart from my mother in law I don't know of a single other person who likes them. I find it hard to believe that they're actually rated that highly by most people, whereas in the past few years the whole world seems to think that Don't Stop Believing is the greatest song ever recorded, despite it being a very mediocre song in the 80s.
