The Donnas, whose hit headbangers include Take It Off and Take Me To The Backseat, are releasing their new album, Bitchin, on September 18, and lead lady Brett Anderson says the bands success comes from ignoring trends and staying true to their rock roots.
Anderson says, We try to keep it simple,straightforward, and pure. A lot of guys come to our shows because they like AC/DC or hair metal, and we bring them back to that. Were not going to rip off Pharrell and put snaps in our songs.
And while the band loves letting loose on stage, the women can get wicked when labeled a girl group.
Anderson says, You cant put a gender on a melody. Its ridiculous that thered be a girl guitar line or a girl bass line. Its a f■■■ing instrument!
But even though The Donnas are more about metal than makeup, theyre not afraid to show their love for one iconic band who wasnt afraid to rock some rouge.
Anderson says, I just saw Poison and Ratt and loved it. Ratt f■■■ing rocks!
