Difficulty Level: Intermediate Genre: Classic Rock

Greg Kihn was at the forefront of the new wave movement of the late ’70s, when he moved from his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland, to Berkeley, California, and signed with a new label, Beserkley. After a few misfires, the Greg Kihn Band charted with “The Breakup Song,” a stripped down, unpretentious, back-to-basics rocker, which basically typified the new wave music of the time. Larry Lynch is the drummer.
