Song of the Day: The B-52's - Dance This Mess Around

"Love Shack" is a very polarizing song - people either seem to love it or hate it.  I may have just lost my three loyal readers with those two words, in fact.  But listening to their eponymous first album, they sound like a very different band.  Most notable is the guitar, which sounds a lot more like something you'd hear on a Talking Heads or Gang of Four album.  But you've still got the voices of Kate Pierson and Fred Schneider, and you still have the sense of humor (I particularly like when Schneider yells out different dances).  Even if you think "Love Shack" is an abomination, hopefully this song (or any from the debut) could change your mind about The B-52s.
