Culture Club es una banda británica de new romantic/pop muy popular en los años ochenta, liderada por Boy George (vocalista), quien se destacaba por su estética glam y sexualmente ambigua; Roy Hay (guitarra), Mike Craig (bajo) y Jon Moss (batería). El sonido de la banda se caracteriza por combinar new wave y soul, con otros estilos como el reggae, calypso, salsa o country.
El grupo triunfó en los años ochenta con temas al mismo tiempo sensuales, alegres y creativos, siendo considerados un fenómeno de la música pop. En sus inicios, Boy George creó revuelo en sus apariciones por televisión, por sus maquillajes coloridos, ropa femenina y trenzas con las que se presentaba, mostrando un aspecto inequívocamente travestido. La banda destacó junto a otros grupos de new romantic como Duran Duran o Spandau Ballet.
