I don't know whether it's just me, bearing in mind that I was very much around at the time, but The Go-Gos completely passed me by. There are one or two songs here with which I have subsequently become familiar, but I really don't remember them being a thing.
And it turns out that while their debut album hit No.1 in the States, here it didn't even chart. The second album was a different story though, it made it to number 75.
So, while the talk here is of how important they are, and what a travesty it is that they aren't in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, I'm still asking myself what the big deal is.
