I don’t remember the first time I’ve heard most bands but I will always remember the first time I heard Wendy O Williams and The Plasmatics. It was my first year in High School and I was hanging out with a couple of friends after class and one of them puts on the album New Hope For The Wretched. I was instantly obsessed. This woman is the baddest babe to walk the planet. If you’re don’t know her work, familiarize yourself with it. Wendy O crossed the genres punk, metal, and then eventually rock in her solo career. She did all her own stunts, she worked with the likes of Gene Simmons and Lemmy Kilmister, spoke out against animal cruelty, and did it all while half-naked.
