CBGBS

It was the music that breathed a breath of fresh air into rock 'n' roll, packing audiences into clubs like CBGB in New York City,  the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA and the Milestone in Charlotte, NC. It sent fans into record stores to buy albums from bands they weren't hearing on the radio, including the B-52s, Television, the Talking Heads, Blondie, and the Ramones.
