YMMV / Culture Club

  • Even Better Sequel: Their second album, Colour By Numbers, is widely recognised as their best.
  • Face of the Band: Boy George.
  • Fandom Rivalry: A minor one with One-Hit Wonder group Dead Or Alive. Lead singer Pete Burns accused Boy George of ripping off his stage persona, to which George had, rather callously, replied "It's not who did it first, it's who did it best!"
  • Reality Subtext: In later years Boy George said that all the anguished love songs that he wrote during the band's heyday were about drummer Jon Moss, with whom he was having an affair. George was smitten but Jon seemed to take the relationship less seriously, perhaps because he was otherwise heterosexual.
  • Signature Song: "Karma Chameleon"
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: "Church Of The Poison Mind" has the same melody as "Uptight" by Stevie Wonder.
