Go-Go's - We Got The Beat


On this date in 1980, Go-Go's released their first single, "We Got The Beat". It was backed by "How Much More". The single was only released in the U.K. and it was barely noticed. In 1982, the song was re-worked and re-released. It still wouldn't chart in the U.K. but it rose to the #2 spot on the U.S. singles chart. Both songs were included on their debut album, Beauty And The Beat (the re-worked versions). The Los Angeles new wave all-girl band broke up in 1985 but re-formed in 1990 and are still performing.
