Culture Club is a new romantic/post-disco-Pop band from the United Kingdom. They were formed in the early 1980s and split up in 1986. Members of Culture Club include Boy George (singing), Mikey Craig (bass guitar), Roy Hay (electric guitar, keyboards), and Jon Moss (drums, percussion). They have many songs that were successful and popular, for example R&B-influenced "Time (Clock of the Heart)" (1982) that entered the US Pop chart (#2 position), and UK Pop chart (#3 position) or "I'll Tumble 4 Ya" (1983).

In 1998 the band reunited and did some reunion tours. It was a major success.

Some members of Culture Club were LGBT.
