The B-52s rose to fame during America's post-punk movement with their 1979 self-titled "The B-52s" album, which went gold and later landed at No. 152 on The Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time."

A year later, the gold-selling "Wild Planet" arrived, paving the way for 1989's "Cosmic Thing," which sold 5 million-plus units and created a string of Top 10 smashes like "Roam and "Love Shack."

Now, The B-52's are on tour yet again, preparing for a high-profile documentary and their first official book.
