"Rock Lobster" was the first single released by the rock band the B-52's, and one of their signature tunes. The song consists largely of instrumental music, with occasional nonsensical lyrics and the repetition of the words "Rock Lobster".

It was performed by the Rock Lobsters in episode 204 of Muppets Tonight.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Rock lobsters are found in the Waterbirth Island Dungeon's fifth sub-level, in room 16. They are similar to Giant Rock Crabs in the fact that they are initially disguised as large rocks, but they will attack the player as they approach. They have very high defence (though they are weak to magic attacks) and can hit up to 15, but rarely hit over 11. Their attack speed is two bars faster than the Abyssal whip's (as fast as darts on rapid fire), making them incredibly dangerous. Rock lobsters are commonly killed by rich players because of their common crimson charm drops. Using the right technique, such as ice bursting or ice barrarging, killing Rock lobsters is one of the fastest methods of obtaining crimson charms in the game.


Obtaining crimson charms

An effective but expensive method of killing Rock lobsters is using the Ancient Magicks spells Ice Burst or Ice Barrage.

What to bring

Armour and weapons



Rock lobsters are found in room 16, sublevel 5, the same area where the ladder to the Dagannoth Kings is. Protection prayers are highly recommended while travelling through the dungeon to avoid damage. The room is a long corridor that stretches a bit east, and then turns and extends south-west. When the player climbs down the ladder to enter the room, the Rock lobster near the ladder will attack. Protect from Melee should be activated, and then the player should run a little west to the edge of the wall and trap the lobster along the stalagmites (if this fails, run along the east side of the stalagmites, and then run back to the safespot). This is the safespot where the player will burst or barrage the lobsters. For now, the player may prepare themselves.

When the player is ready, they should don their Proselyte armour, activate Protect from Melee, and run east to the bend and about halfway down the south west path. The player should now have seven lobsters attacking them. The player can get two more if they want, but they won't follow the player to the safespot as it is out of their wandering range. There actually is a spot where the player can burst/barrage nine lobsters at a time, but it is more dangerous and harder to get into position than the safespot near the ladder.

Now the player should run back around the bend and return west to the safespot just south of the stalagmites near the ladder. It is important that the player stands directly south of the stalagmites and next to the west wall. Walking a pace south will "untrap" the lobsters, and the player may die in a matter of seconds if they do not activate Protect from Melee in time.

The player may burst/barrage the lobsters from one of several safespots. When all are killed, they should quickly grab the charms and go back to the chosen safespot. If the Rock Lobster that spawns near the ladder has already spawned, the player should activate the prayer before grabbing the loot. The player may repeat this as desired. 1000 casts of Ice Burst will gain the player around 200-300 crimson charms, 100-150 gold charms, 50-75 green charms, and blue charms are debatable; with 99 magic you can do 280+ crimsons. With Ice Barrage, the accepted average is 350 crismon charms, 175 gold charms, 80 green charms, and blue charms are debatable.
