Biography

While Greg Kihn may have found a home for his music when he moved to Berkeley in 1974 and signed on with Beserkley Records, it would take almost a decade to find a successful formula for his music. Winding from Dylanesque folk to merseyesque rock, by the early ’80s Kihn and his band found they shared elements of new wave music, and scored their first US hit, “The Breakup Song (They Don’t Write ‘Em). ” Kihn had a bigger hit the following year with “Jeopardy,” which peaked in the States at number 2. “Jeopardy” brought Kihn two of the highest honors an early eighties act could achieve: MTV put the video into heavy rotation, and Weird Al Yankovic recorded a parody. Kihn has been hard at work over the years, hosting a radio show, writing books and coming up with clever album titles (Kihnspiracy, Unkihntrollable). He has kinhtinued recording through it all, though it has proven difficult for Kihn to recapture the successes of 1982 and ‘83.

    His version of "For You" turned a messy, Dylanesque rant into a snappy pop/rock classic. Love it.

    Eine klasse Band - ich habe sie mit der Erscheinung von "Remember" kennen gelernt. Man sollte sich die Bandmittglieder (auch die ehemaligen) mal genauer anschauen. Auch Joe Satriani hatte hier mitgewirkt!! Ihre Musik kann ich nur jedem nahe legen! G´s WIny

    Wow, really unpopular. Only 67,000 plays? Most 80s bands with 2-3 hits have 4-5x that....
