I am a child of the 1980s, and many of the unique, grrrl-power singers and rockers from the decade remain important to me. You can find them on my playlist at any given time, and I typically sing homages to them in the shower – as long as no one is home to hear me. Here is my top seven list, of the favorite-favorite girls who still make me want to secretly be a rockstar.
1. Joan Jett

My A1 choice of all time (although she's tied with #2). I loved the Runaways as well, but Joan's solo career was my favorite. If anything, she's gotten hotter than she was back in the day, and I am so, so glad she's still around. This growling little pixie packs a lot of punch and she snarls like James Dean. I fell in love the first time I saw the video to “I Love Rock 'n' Roll.”
