The Skinny: Yeah… This is some badass punk/glam rock-n-roll. I guess it’s notable that The Donnas are an all-girl outfit, but this is high-octane crotch rock regardless. The only cheesecake here is the one off the dessert cart that vocalist Brett Anderson is going to throw in your face.
Sounds like: Ramones, The Runaways, Girlschool, AC/DC, Bachman–Turner Overdrive, Kiss, Jet
Deeper Thoughts: This is a bit later in their run and it’s a bit more polished than their earlier stuff. But it’s super fun, and I love the shift thematically to the woman being the rock-n-roll aggressor. Even Kip Winger is scurrying off to powder his nose when The Donnas strut into the bar at the bowling alley.
The Sonics: Overwrought AF and glorious. Feels pretty wide open, with lots of low-end thump and tail-shaking groove.
