Trivia / The Buggles

  • 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).
  • The Pete Best: Bruce Wolley, who was signed as a solo act at the same time as the rest of the band. Because he had co-written several of the band's songs, many of the same songs appeared on both acts' first albums.
  • Short-Lived Big Impact: These guys only put out two albums, but are regarded as one of the most influential New Wave acts ever. Trevor Horn would afterwards find massive success as a music producer, earning the nickname "The Man who Invented the 80's".
