"Italian director Federico Fellini's work was, and continues to be, a strong inspiration for the music and image of the rock band, the The B-52's. They cited his influence from films such as for their trademark bouffant hairstyles and retro-futuristic clothing styles. Most recently, his work was the main inspiration behind their latest album, Funplex (2008) with the song Juliet of the Spirits." --Sholem Stein

The B-52s (styled as The B-52's prior to 2008) are an American new wave band, formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1976 and one of the only quintessential 1980's bands that have survived to date.

Rooted in new wave and 1960s rock and roll, the group later covered many genres, ranging from post-punk to pop rock.

The band's name comes from a particular beehive hairdo resembling the nose cone of the aircraft of the same name.
