Poly Styrene Dies at 53
After a long battle with cancer an icon of punk feminism and lead singer of the band, X-Ray Spex has died at age 53. Here she is singing, Germ Free Adolescence:
And her classic, “Oh Bondage up Yours” where she spoke the famous words, “Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard but I think, oh bondage up yours!” Her battle cry encouraged countless girl bands, she laid the foreground for the Riot Grrrl movement and she inspired girls like me to speak up and to not conform. She will be missed.
