The Go-Go's release "Beauty and the Beat" 1981

The Go-Go's released "Beauty and the Beat" July 8, 1981 and the album is considered one of the best break-through albums of all time.  It certainly put the Go-Go's on the pop chart maps, and helped them become one of  the top selling all-girl groups ever.  "Beauty and the Beat" made it to #1 on the Billboard 200 in 1982, knocking off J. Geils Band's "Freeze-Frame" and remained there for six weeks.  It went double-platinum and produced two hit singles "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed".
