We Got the Beat by the Go-Go's.

     Released in January of 1982, "We Got The Beat" by the Go-Go's would become the band's biggest hit to date, spending three weeks at #2 on the US Billboard charts.  The song is immortal- not only was it used in the opening credit sequence of the 80s classic "Fast Times At Ridgemont High", but it was also named one of The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame's 500 Songs That Shaped Rock And Roll.  The video received very heavy rotation on MTV and quickly became a staple on the video channel.  With its simple yet instantly recognizable intro, the song still never fails to get people moving and is classic Go-Go's.
