As I've written before, anyone roughly my age (37) probably remembers the first time they heard "Rock Lobster" by the B-52's in much the same way we remember when we heard about the Challenger disaster or 9-11, or our parents remember when they heard that JFK had been shot. Now YouTube lets you see their legendarily weird "Saturday Night Live" performance too. How such an arty, surf-punk, meaningless southern-fried retro-futuristic bouillabaise of a song ever became an iconic hit for a generation, I don't really know, but I'm glad it did.
