L7

Although often lumped in with the "Seattle Movement" of the early '90s (due to their sound, look, and attitude), the all-female punk band L7 hailed originally from Los Angeles. The seeds for L7 (whose name was taken from a slang term in the '50s that meant someone who was a "square") were planted in 1985, when a pair of guitarists/singers, Suzi Gardner and Donita Sparks, decided to start a band. Over the next few years, the group extended its lineup to include bassist Jennifer Finch and drummer Dee Plakas, as their sound grew more and more metallic, yet never losing the attack and simplicity of punk. 1988 saw the group signed by the Epitaph label, which issued their self-titled debut the same year and the group spent the better part of the next few years touring the world. L7 issued Smell the Magic for the Sub Pop label in 1991, and the same year formed the Rock for Choice non-profit organization. Raising money and awareness for pro-rights, the organization put on several benefit shows over the years, featuring such noted performers as Nirvana, Hole, Pearl Jam, and Neil Young, among others.

With Nirvana finally bringing punk to the mainstream, bands such as L7 suddenly became "en vogue" as the quartet was signed to Slash/Reprise, issuing their best-known album with the Butch Vig-produced Bricks Are Heavy in April of 1992 (which spawned the popular MTV hit "Pretend We're Dead"). L7's follow-up, 1994's Hungry for Stink, failed to expand the group's following despite being part of the 1994 version of the traveling U.S. alt rock festival Lollapalooza. Bassist Finch left the group shortly thereafter (eventually replaced by former Belly bassist Gail Greenwood) and the group issued such further releases as 1997's The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum, 1998's Live: Omaha to Osaka, and 1999's Slap-Happy, while the group was also the subject of a 1998 concert film made by former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, also titled The Beauty Process. In 2000, a 12-track retrospective collection was issued, Best of L7: The Slash Years. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Slant 6 and L7 opened for fugazi at the sanctuary theater in dc in early 90s. I didnt know what to expect - never heard em before. Holy guacamole!!! They blew th doors off the hinges. They even got Slimenstra from GWAR to perform fire tricks while they were playin. L7 instantly became one o my favorites. Top 3 live show ive ever seen
Definitely my favorite L7 song. And I second the Betty Blowtorch comment.

㋡ L7 ㋡
I saw them at deep ellum in dallas back in '94. i hung on for dear life in the crush pit, just mesmerized by them. then some chic riding the crowd sat on my face and knocked me down. man that was a great time.

then later after the show, i went to the back of the club and got their autographs on my ticket stub. i kept that thing for years before accidentally washing it. damnit.
Rockssssssss s s s s s s s
one eyed doll's childhood music

L7 brings back memories of me in High School, crappy long hair, black t-shirts and all. There was a younger girl who had a huge crush on me. She was almost stalker level. She bought tickets to see them and tried to force me to drive her. I freaked out and avoided her from there on out. It was an awkward time for us all, mostly her, but whenever I hear L7 she comes to mind...ha ha...Looking back, I should have gone and made her dreams come true...
I saw them in a small venue ive been in LOVE srsly ever since ahhhhhhhh xoxoxoxo
I miss going to good shows! These b**ches Rock!
I saw Donita and Dee in their new band Donita Sparks and the Stellar Moments in Cleveland at the Grog Shop. They still sound amazing with their new band, and I was in heaven when they played Pretend We're Dead! XOXO to L7
holwick25
