Before we get into the May Jobs Report, here’s the B-52s with a reminder that all work and no play isn’t Athens, GA, in the mid 1970s: “Deadbeat Club.”

UPDATE: While commenter bmcchgo is right about the release date of this song, I’m reasonably sure it was a reminiscence from the band’s pre-fame days in Athens. Even at Alan’s happy hour prices, beer wasn’t 25 cents in 1989.
