This is the self-titled debut album by American rock band The Modern Lovers, originally released in 1976

Six songs ("Roadrunner", "Astral Plane", "Old World", "Pablo Picasso", "She Cracked" and "Someone I Care About ") were produced by John Cale. The Modern Lovers were formed in 1970 by young singer, songwriter and guitarist Jonathan Richman, along with Jerry Harrison (keyboards), Ernie Brooks (bass) and David Robinson (drums), with the occasional addition of their friend and founding member John Felice

The Modern Lovers influenced countless aspiring punk rock musicians on both sides of the Atlantic, including the Sex Pistols, whose early cover of "Roadrunner" appeared on The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. The album was included in Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. In 2003, Rolling Stone recognised the album as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
