You're watching the official music video for The B-52's - Deadbeat Club from the album 'Cosmic Thing'. Subscribe to the Rhino Channel. Deadbeat Club is a song by the B-52's. The song is about the band's early days in Athens when they would hang around in cafes drinking coffee. Because they didn't work or do anything, their parents nicknamed them Deadbeats. Allen's, mentioned in the nostalgic song, was a real-life place in Athens, Georgia. Normaltown is a neighborhood of Athens. The song was released as the fifth and final single from their 1989 album Cosmic Thing. It peaked at No. 30 on the US Billboard Hot 100, No. 21 on the New. As the follow-up to Roam, Deadbeat Club fell far short of living up to its predecessors' high namely, Top Five expectations, but it is a very entertaining single that finds the B-52's in a rare, reflective mood that's quite engaging. Since it wasn't a particularly danceable single, it wasn't released in a variety of singles, all backed with remixes. The B-52's is ranked number 422 in the overall artist rankings with a total rank score of 4,407. The B-52s - 2 CD 1 Single Lot - Very Good to NewSealed Condition Condition: Very Good.

B-52s drummer Keith Strickland wrote the music for this song shortly after B-52s guitarist Ricky Wilson died of AIDS in 1985. His original title was There Is a River. In a 1990 Spin magazine interview, Strickland said: In the early days, we all used to sit around like this, just hang out, drink coffee and talk. It was sort of Cafe Society in Athens. So we'd joke about ourselves being the deadbeat club. When I played the music for Fred and Kate and Cindy, everybody just started singing about the deadbeat club. That's what the music evoked in them, when in a lot of ways that's what I was thinking when I wrote It. And I didn't tell them that I was thinking a lot about Ricky. We're the deadbeat club We're the deadbeat club. Going down to Allen's for A twenty-five cent beer And the jukebox playing real loud 96 Tears We're wild girls walkin' down the street Wild girls and boys going out for a big time. Let's go crash that party down In Normaltown tonight Then we'll go skinny-dippin' In the moonlight We're wild girls walkin' down the street Wild girls and boys going out for a big time. Anyway we can We're gonna find something We'll dance in the garden In torn sheets in the rain. We're the dea.
