Trivia / The Buggles

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Both members are probably better remembered for their post-Buggles work. Downes became the keyboardist for Asia and (briefly) for Yes. Likewise, Horn was briefly the vocalist for Yes, before going on to be an extremely prolific Record Producer.
  • One-Hit Wonder: Technically they had a few, but "Video Killed The Radio Star" was by far the biggest and the only one anyone remembers (and nonetheless is only remembered for being the first video played on MTV).
  • Short-Lived Big Impact: These guys only put out two albums, but are regarded as one of the most influential New Wave acts ever.
