Love her/them or no?  Or no opinion?  If you dig 'em, what is your fav from either the Plasmatics or her two solo albums?

She had a rockin' body and nice teats, but her voice was nails on a chalk board to me. Her duet with Lemmy on 'Stand By Your Man' caused Fast Eddie to leave Motorhead. True story.



Even still, I voted 'Kinda cool'. She knew how to work a crowd.

I remember when USA network used to play movies hosted by Gilbert Gottfried. They would play "Reform School Girls" and she was in it. Not much interest in her or The Plasmatics, just not my style.

The Plasmatics' Coup D'Etat was (and still is) badassery personified. I will never forget the first time I saw the video for "The Damned" on MTV when I was a wee lad. Wendy O. fascinated, and terrified, me in equal measure.

Love em. It sucks that suicide was the best option for Wendy. RIP.

Pretty novel group too considering the timeline of Metal and punk collaborating on any level.

Love em . One of the first "extreme" (?) bands I got into. I was already into raw rifferama by The Ramones, but at the same time of the thrash explosion of Metallica/Venom/Slayer/ etc, I was discovering hc/punk, and one band I remembered read about for years in rock mags like Creem was The Plasmatics. Every time I seen an album  of theirs in a record store for an affordable price, would grab it.
When the first W.O.W. lp was released, I played that vinyl everyday for months. Funny now that I learn, Wendy only changed it to a "solo band name" to avoid legal hassles, and documentaries now say, every record she did was Plasmatics, no matter what the cover says.
The last album was ok, never gave it enough of a chance.

The first Playboy I bought was because  she was inside it. One photo was her parachuting naked out of a plane I think.

I was like 12 or 13 when I caught the Plastmatics on late night show, I think it might have been 'Night Flight' and frankly I did not know what to make of it.

On one hand her smoking body turned my young soul on but that voice was, I never heard a woman sing like that in my life up to that point. Than she blow up a car and smashed a tv with a sledgehammer and I thought what the f**k. I reacted more to the spectacle than the actual music.

A year later I bought Coup D'Etat and I was surprised I liked it.

She was very cool and was very saddened when they announced her death as a suicide.

Always familiar with the various shades of Wendy.
I was saddened that she took her life. Crazy life.
That live concert in London is fantastic.
"Bump and Grind" - had Ace on guitar -
Gene played bass on one sone. Stanley on another.
Eric Carr played drums on a song.
Yes, even Vinnie Vincent too, played a song.
I always liked punk and punk rock...and that rebellion sound.
Wendy was queen of it, hands down.

I remember talking about the Plasmatics with another oldschool metalhead back in the late 1980s/early 90s and he said "they're not punk, they are just shitty metal". Laughing
But nothing he said would stop me from liking them. Just like when high school friends made fun of me for liking The Ramones and not being a clone like them and only into popular metal like Triumph.

You're ALL correct! Except for Candlemass - Danzig is still a wussy B.
