The Go-Go's Beauty and the Beat Vinyl LP
As the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play their own instruments, write their own songs and have a No. 1 album, The Go-Go's are the most successful female rock band of all time. Rooted in the LA punk scene, Charlotte Caffey (lead guitar, keyboards and vocals), Belinda Carlisle (lead vocals), Gina Schock (drums), Kathy Valentine (bass and vocals) and Jane Wiedlin (guitar & vocals) didn't play the part of bad girls – they were genuine punk rockers.
The Go-Go's rose to fame following the release of their 1981 debut album, Beauty And The Beat, a collection of infectious tracks with huge hooks.
Locked at No. 1 on the Billboard charts for six consecutive weeks, Beauty and the Beat was one of the most successful debut albums of all time, featuring the hits "Our Lips Are Sealed" (one of Rolling Stone's ‘Top 100 Pop Singles') and "We Got The Beat" and resulted in a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.
