The pioneering group scored Billboard 200 honors yet to be matched.
On March 6, 1982, the Go-Go's topped the Billboard 200 with their new wave debut, Beauty and the Beat, making the act the first all-female rock band to notch a No. 1 album. Today, it's an achievement that has yet to be matched.
"Our manager, Ginger [Canzoneri], would tell us our number on the charts, and it was unbelievably exciting to listen to the number get higher and higher every week," guitarist/backing vocalist Jane Wiedlin told Billboard in 2011. "The week we went to No. 1, we were on tour opening for The Police, and they gave us champagne and congratulated us."
