The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band. Their eponymous 1975 debut album included the single “White Punks on Dope,” while their 1983 single “She’s a Beauty” was a top-10 U.S. hit and its music video was frequently played in the early days of MTV. The band also performed in the 1980 film Xanadu, singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song “Dancin'” opposite a big band.
The Completion Backward Principle is the sixth studio album released April 1981 by the American rock group the Tubes. It is the group’s first for Capitol Records. It was accompanied by a long form music video release of the same name, although it did not contain all of the songs from the album. It is a concept album presented as a motivational business document. The album contains two hit singles, “Don’t Want to Wait Anymore” and “Talk to Ya Later.”
