Greg Kihn

Greg Kihn began his career in his hometown of Baltimore, MD, working in the singer/songwriter mold, but switched to straightforward rock & roll when he moved to San Francisco in 1974. The following year, he became one of the first artists signed to Matthew Kaufman's now-legendary Beserkley Records. Along with Jonathan Richman, Earthquake, and the Rubinoos, Kihn helped to carve the label's sound -- melodic pop with a strong '60s pop sensibility -- a refreshing alternative to the bloated prog rock of the time. In 1976, after his debut on the compilation Beserkley Chartbusters, he recorded his first album with his own band consisting of Ronnie Dunbar (guitar), Steve Wright (bass), and Larry Lynch (drums). Through the '70s, he released an album each year and built a strong cult following through constant touring, becoming Beserkley's biggest seller. In 1981, he earned his first bona fide hit with the Top 20 single, "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)," from the Rockihnroll album. He continued in a more commercial vein through the '80s with a series of pun-titled albums: Kihntinued (1982), Kihnspiracy (1983), Kihntageous (1984), and Citizen Kihn (1985). He scored his biggest hit with 1983's "Jeopardy" (number two) from the Kihnspiracy album. One more single broke the Top 40, 1985's "Lucky," but by the time Love and Rock and Roll was released in 1986, the puns had run out and so had the hits. Kihn kept a relatively low profile throughout the '90s, releasing Mutiny in 1994 and Horror Show in 1996. All the Right Reasons followed in mid-2000. ~ Chris Woodstra, Rovi

Jeopardy would have went to #1 if it wasn't for Michael Jackson's Beat It came out the same time.

Cult following by Las Lomas High (Walnut Creek) students all through the late 70's and early 80's! Old Waldorf concerts were great!

i thought that was blue oyster cult. how stupid of me, i guess when your young you don't think straight at least in the 70's.
pure rock kihn roll! celebrity theatre, phoenix
words fail me, but this tune is head and shoulders above the others of the era and i thank him/them for this tune; it's one for the ages and i'm not easily impressed

Saw him in High School at the Concord Pavilion - really good.
Very good song. So prophetic. He's now a DJ on 98.5 KFOX in San Jose, CA, but never seems to play his own songs...WHY? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
my first concert ever. saw him open for the tubes in hays, kansas in 1982 or 83.

I'm a musician, playing his upbeat stuff live always pleases the crowd, gets 'em up and dancin'.
my idol

Though in one of that station's concerts he did a good cover of a Green Day song.
Seems like a nice guy on the radio (he does a morning show here in California). I don't think his music is particularly good or original...
I met greg kihn at a funeral. it was awesome.
except for the funeral part.
ok kinda a song....
