Girls Who Rock

Recommended Posts

Who else loves seeing girls rocking out on stage? Commanding attention, not just because they've got a pretty face, but because they can play some mad guitar or sing like no one's business?

I love listening to girls who can rock just as hard as the guys. It makes me feel empowered, makes me wish I could play something.

I love finding new music in general, but I thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to sharing videos and links to bands that feature a girl (or girls) that are good at what they do and love it.

I'll start us off with some Horrorpops. Patricia Day is one of the most well-known faces in the Rockabilly/Psychobilly scene. She and her now-husband , Kim, met while performing in different bands and started the Horrorpops so that they could experiment with different music. They decided to start with trading instruments, with Patricia teaching Kim to play guitar and him teaching her to play the stand-up bass.

I just rediscovered Horrorpops - Hell Yeah in my cd collection the other day. Hadn't listened to it for ages!

Neither of these bands are new, but they're both great. I got in trouble for wearing a Jack Off Jill - Angel Fuck, Devils Kiss tshirt to drama rehearsals at school when I was about 17 :lol:

I love The Horrorpops...I'm such a huge old-school rockabilly fan, so it's great to hear a more modernized, spookier version.

Jack Off Jill and Scarling are great, too.

I'll have to say Melissa Auf Der Mar, The Runaways, Brody Dalle (The Distillers), My Bloody Valentine, Bow Wow Wow and Siouxsie.

This next song actually makes me weak in the knees:

Hahaha. :) Yay new friends.

Seriously?! Noone named Joan freakin' Jett?!

This might have been because The Runaways was mentioned but no one can deny Joan Jett. Or the greatness that is Blackheart Records.
