Exene Cervenka and the Original Sinners (Music)

It's obscure. It's punk. Hearst College radio station KRFF shows off its credibility with this poster on its wall. Punks would eschew the thought of having any sort of royalty amongst their ranks, but if not the Queen of Punk, Exene Cervenka would at least be a duchess...or maybe a baroness. She gets the gongs for her band X, one of the best punk bands of the '80s. Like all good punk bands, and bad ones, too, come to think of it, X didn't last forever, and in the '00s, she formed the Original Sinners for some rough and rowdy shouting. Their second album, Sev7en, itself a cultural reference to the dark Morgan Freeman/Brad Pitt 1995 thriller, Se7en, mixes punk, rock, and blues with social commentary and street poetry to a standard obviously appreciated at Hearst.
