Culture Club are a British pop band who were part of the 1980s. The original band comprised Boy George (lead vocals), Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards) and Jon Moss (drums and percussion).[2] Their second album, Colour by Numbers, has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, and they had several international hits with songs such as “Church of the Poison Mind“, “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me“. Boy George’s androgynous style of dressing caught the attention of the public and the media. NOW, in 2006 George reported to the New York Department of Sanitation for his court-ordered community service. As a result of the swarming media coverage, he was allowed to finish his community service inside the Sanitation Department grounds.
