Their first single, "Rock Lobster," recorded for DB Records in 1978, was an underground success, selling over 2,000 copies in total, that led to the B-52's performing at CBGB and Max's Kansas City in New York City. Both this version of "Rock Lobster" and its B-side "52 Girls" are different recordings from those on their first album, and the early version of "52 Girls" is in a different key. The re-recorded version of "Rock Lobster" was released as a single

Rock Lobster" is a song written by Fred Schneider and Ricky Wilson, two members of The B-52's. It was produced in two versions, one by DB Records released in April 1978, and a longer version, which was part of the band's 1979 self-titled debut album, released by Warner Bros. The song became one of their signature tunes and it helped launch the band's success.

We were at a party His ear lobe fell in the deep Someone reached in and grabbed it It was a rock lobster. Rock lobster Rock lobster. We were at the beach Everybody had matching towels Somebody went under a dock And there they saw a rock. It wasn't a rock It was a rock lobster. Motion in the ocean His air hose broke Lots of trouble Lots of bubble. He was in a jam He's in a giant clam. Rock, rock Rock lobster Down, down. Underneath the waves Mermaids wavin' Wavin' to mermen Wavin' sea fans. Sea horses sailin' Dolphins wailin'. Red snappers snappin' Clam shells clappin' Mussels flexin' Flippers flippin'.

Rock Lobster is on the B-52's first album in 1979 - and Love Shack was released on Cosmic Thing in 1989. All the songs on Cosmic Thing were written by the whole band, jamming together trying to kick-start their creativity in the late 1980's after the death of Ricky Wilson. When they were improvising lines for "Rock Lobster" in a jam session, he turned this into the line that we hear in the song. Joe from Bellingham, WaWhat a weird song huh? I first heard it on the radio in the late 90's, I thought it was a joke!

Aaaah Rock lobster Aaaah Rock lobster. Rock lo-o-obster Rock lo-o-obster. Motion in the ocean (Ooh ah) His air hose broke (Hoo ah) Lots of trouble (Ooh ah) Lots of bubble (Hoo ah) He was in a jam (Ooh ah) He's in a giant clam! (Hoo ah). Rock, rock Rock lobster! (Aaaaaaaaah) Down, down! (Aaaaaaah). Lobster Rock Lobster Rock Let's rock! Boys and bikinis Girls and surfboards Everybody's rockin' Everybody's frugin'.

Rock Lobster" is The B-52's' first single, released in 1978 and in a longer version placed on the band's self-titled debut album, The B-52's, one year later.
