YMMV / The Buggles

  • Awesome Music: They made some of the best music of the New Wave era. Doing note-perfect live versions of their meticulously recorded songs is also a major feat.
  • Ear Worm: "Video Killed The Radio Star", of course.
  • First Installment Wins: The Age of Plastic is far better-known and generally more acclaimed than Adventures in Modern Recording.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "Video Killed The Radio Star" successfully predicted video replacing radio as the source of new music.
  • Never Live It Down: The band is best known for having the first video played on MTV
  • Signature Song: "Video Killed the Radio Star" is by far their most famous song, to the point where they are sometimes (mistakenly) believed to have been a one-hit-wonder (at least in Uk, Germany and Netherlands where "Living in the Plastic Age" was a top 30 hit).
