Do you like Oingo Boingo?
I love how they examine serious issues in their songs without sounding too serious themselves. In their 80s work, at least, they always manage to keep a happy, upbeat tone in their albums despite discussing issues like war, pedophilia, cultural stagnation, and death.
It's hard to choose a favorite album out of them all, but I love Dead Man's Party because of it's cheery take on the inevitability of death. Only A Lad, their first album, is probably the weakest, just because many of the songs take a preach tone, Capitalism and What You See being prime examples. It has many great songs, however, and should not be overlooked.
After the 80s Oingo Boingo started to shift into a more Alternative genre, which is not necessarily bad, but I prefer their New Wave work.
