Nothing was ever more fun than late-’70s New Wave. Where else would you find a girl band called Suburban Lawns performing song called “Gidget Goes To Hell” about a rich-bitch surfer getting eaten by a shark?

To top it off: A low-budget, Annette Funicello beach-movie inspired video — first aired on Saturday Night Live, back when they still cared about doing something slightly cutting edge now and then.

This is the song that came to mind when Funicello passed away a couple months ago, but playing it seemed “Too soon!” until now.

Enjoy the campy goodness.
