number one coolest woman rocker







Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, our big winner. Comes right to mind. She has been with no wave, punk rock band Sonic Youth maybe almost 30 years, has been married to Thurston Moore for much of that time, also in the band, and they have a daughter together. A little punk rock family, how common is that? Watch her here in 'Cool Thing' and you'll see what I mean.

I know I'm 'dating' myself but...I've gotta say it - Janis Joplin.

Well I would include Marlon Brando. The part in the movie where he is all beat up by Lee J. Cobb as the teamster boss and laying face down in the water....and Carl Malden and Eva marie St says.... "get up...get up" and he gets and staggers up to Cobb and says "you ain't nothing but a dirty rotten bum!"

i loved that part.
Kim
