I don't think floons care about Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers or Little Anthony And The Imperials because they can't progress that far in music history. They believe what The Jacksons tell them.<quoted text>
Basically. Duran Duran were pioneers of music video, something that in the midst of "Michaelmania" nowadays gets overlooked (just like Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers' barrier breaking success as a doo-wop vocal group that had pop success is overlooked thanks to the Jackson 5). Even MJ getting credit for changing the video format is not actually accurate. All he did was bring the musicals to music videos. Only part people repeated was the in-line dancing from "Beat It" onwards but that was about it, I think.
Both groups were far more talented than The Jackson 5.
Floons think Wacko invented it and did it first.
Even Little Stevie Wonder did it before The Jackson 5.
