Added DiffLines:

* MagnumOpusDissonance: Whilst critics will usually state the s/t or Cosmic Thing as the band's best album, fans almost universally like Wild Planet or Whammy the best.
** Within the band itself. Whilst Fred, Kate, and Keith all like "Wild Planet" best, Cindy likes "Bouncing Off The Satellites" most, owing to the bittersweet qualities of it being her brother Ricky's last album as well as having several of her most popular songs such as "Ain't It A Shame" on the album.


Added DiffLines:

* WastedSong: "Ain't It A Shame" is routinely cited as the great hit single that never was, and might have been had it not been for the lack of promotion behind "Bouncing Off The Satellites". The song has somewhat been VindicatedByHistory as SineadOConnor covered it, it appeared on "Nude On The Moon" and Cindy has performed it live on solo tours.

'''The B-52s''' are a [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] Band out of Athens, Georgia, the same birthplace of Music/{{REM}}. They're most well-known for their quirky SciFi-themed songs and beehive hairdos worn by the female members (hence the name).

*** This is the premise of the song "Cake", where the whole act of baking a cake is used as a euphemism for sex "don't let it drip down the sides". It's strongly implied that it's lesbian sex as well.

** WordOfGod is that the weird ululating noises the girls make towards the end of "Rock Lobster" are an homage to YokoOno. JohnLennon [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome recognized this when he heard the song]], felt the world was "ready" for him and Yoko's music, and it helped inspire them to return to recording together by 1980.
