1. Peaches Who She Is: Peaches, the current reigning queen of Electroclash, continues to pump out track after track of subversive, shocking, salacious, and silly dance tracks. She became famous from her dirty, minimalist song “Fuck The Pain Away,” a track practically designed to be played in strip clubs, and is always dressed in avant-garde outfits. From her barbie-doll breast sweater to her fake beard and mustache to her pink booty shorts, Peaches is not only a singer but a political activist fighting for gender equality, animal rights, and most recently the release of Russian punk band Pussy Riot.
What She’s Up to Now: Peaches is touring the world with her experimental film Peaches Does Herself (a rock opera using her own music) and her one woman show Peaches Christ Superstar (a corruption of the original Broadway play).
Choice Lyric: “Shake yer dix / Shake yer tits / Are the motherfuckers ready for the fatherfuckers? / Are the fatherfuckers ready for the motherfuckers? / No.”
