Boy this is a horrid list!

"I Want You Back" was not the Jackson 5 debut, They had 2 or 3 singles before that one. Phil Collins, you can't count a star from a big group who has a solo release as a debut. How the fuck are "Maybelline" and "Bo Diddley" not on there????

Sam & Dave had liked 7 singles before "Hold On, I'm Comin."

Here's a GOOD list on the same subject:

"Our Lips Are Sealed" was not the Go-Go's debut single. They had an earlier version of "We Got The Beat" out on Stiff like a year before that.
