The Go-Go's are an all-female American rock and roll group that formed in 1978. They made history as the first all-woman band in pop music that played their own instruments and wrote their own songs to top the Billboard charts with a #1 album. Stylistically, their energetic music spanned punk, surf rock, new wave, power pop, and more. They rose to fame in the early-80s with a sunny, retro public image, and their unlikely success helped ushered in an era of similar bands and music in the U.S.
