I can’t even downplay my adoration—the Go-Go’s are cool as fuck. Originally formed as a punk band (Belinda Carlisle was in the Germs for a minute!) in the late ’70s, the LA foursome went ultra-pop and became the first all-female band (who played their own instruments and wrote their own songs) to top the Billboard charts when Beauty and the Beat went triple fucking platinum! Because it’s a fucking amazing album! Sorry for all the swears, but the Go-Go’s made so many catchy new-wavey hits of pop perfection that I can’t think of anything more fun than screaming along to “How Much More” with some fancy wine in my hand.
