Kickass girls owning the night

Posted in Inspiration, Music by downwithprince on March 16, 2010

Right now, I’m having a femmes of rock moment which inspired me to do this post about women who prefer the comfort of a cold beer to that of a warm man, and whose first love is for ROCK ‘N’ ROLL. Don’t get me wrong. I prefer girl bands with talent and style over feminist bands, with the come-and-get-it flaunt, who are only worthy of a second thought because of their looks.

Almost any old rock girlfriends/groupies had style but I’d take Girlschool, one of the punkiest and fiercest bands to blow up in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s new wave of British heavy metal. Girlschool was the real thing. Those girls were stylish and forceful, but without the pose. And they could rock harder than most men.

Suzi Quatro, another acceptable face of femme rock who formed the Pleasure Seekers, proved that it was possible for a small woman to play bass and sing rocking skin tight leather clothes and be the wild one that all guys wish their tidy girlfriends would be.
