8 punk and post-punk female singer videosI had so much fun time compiling that list of 70s punk band videos, I compiled another list. This one features some of my favorite female vocalists.
1. The Flying Lizards: Money (1979?)
Featuring scary minimalist singer Deborah Lizard.
2. Joan Jett: Cherry Bomb (1982?)
Joan Jett was a member of The Runaways, which did this song first.
3. Danielle Dax: Tomorrow Never Knows (1990)
Usually I don't like Beatles covers, but this is an exception.
4. The Runaways Schooldays (1979?)
Joan Jett was in this band before going solo.
5. Bow Wow Wow: I Want Candy (1982)
A post Sex Pistol's Malcom McLaren manufactured group.
6. X Ray Spex: The Day the World Day Glo (1976)
Singer Poly Styrene is one of my favorites. What an interesting voice!
7. BONUS: Debbie Harry sings in 1980 movie, Unmade Beds.
8. The Avengers: The American in Me (1978)
I was looking for a video of the Avengers but I couldn't find one. Luckily, Boing Boing reader Cliff did. Thanks!
