Well, I nominated Kate Bush and The Runaways. Why do punks hate women? :shifty: I'm kidding.
I’m on my third decade of trying to get into Kate Bush, but other than a couple of songs, she doesn’t do it for me.
Oh, I get it. She's an acquired taste, but if you have a taste for her, like I do (gawd, that sounds kinky), you see how much of a musical genius she is/was. A lot of people can't get past her voice, especially in the early years. Hounds of Love, though, is a masterpiece.
I love

Babuskha
Hounds of Love
Running Up That Hill
Wuthering Heights
I'm sure you've seen the video for Babushka, yeah?
It's a good video, Meemz.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

A few months ago, I was going down a rabbit hole hunting down obscure female punk and especially post-punk bands. Obscure chiefly because it's the male bands that dominate popular memory. But generally they were groups who put out a 7" or ep and that was it. A couple series of compilations stand out:
https://www.discogs.com/label/1114912-Subnormal-Girls
https://www.discogs.com/label/1422816-Typical-Girls

But what struck me is that there was so much more variety, less orthodoxy (especially punk orthodoxy) than in the big male-centred bands. Which is to say, female punk and punk-inspired bands seemed to capture the punk spirit of openness and diversity much, much better.

Love some Kate Bush but not a regular listen, just when I fancy it and only Kate hits the spot.
