Go Gos - We Got the Beat
Adam Rifkin stashed this in 1980s

The rumor I heard way back, is that they couldn't play their instruments, so were not very good live, but they got things up to speed ;) Not sure how true all that is.
This is a good one too. It could have just been a rumor, because they were an all girl band.
The Go-Go’s are an all-female American rock band formed in 1978. They made history as the first, and to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts.
Sad that it took 27 years into the rock era to have an all female band top the charts.
Then again, how many have done it since?
The Bangles and... Anyone else?
I think there are a lot of female bands that write their own music currently, because there are so many bands now ;)
True, I'm wondering if any other all-woman bands have topped the Billboard album charts.
Is it possible it hasn't happened in a generation?
Jane Wiedlin (this is so 80's)
Blue Kiss (one of my favorite songs of that time)
Great song. Today I learned she's an ordained minister and has no children:
I really like her voice. I have this album on cassette somewhere.
No, I hadn't heard it, I'm only familiar with her first album.
