[[http://www.ethanhein.com/wp/2009/bjork This report by Ethan Hein]] shows how unique she is: "Björk seems to be one of the only high-profile white musicians who understands that [[DeadHorseGenre rock and roll is over]]. There's almost no guitar in any of her work. There's a sample of distorted electric guitar on "Human Behaviour," nylon-string guitar on "So Broken," pedal steel on live versions of "Possibly Maybe" -- I think that's about it. Her stringed instrument accompaniment of choice is the harp." That's just one of the things that makes her one-of-a-kind.

Björk Guðmundsdóttir (born 21 November 1965) is a woman from UsefulNotes/{{Iceland}} who's famous for several things: Her voice, her weird (but [[CrazyAwesome awesome]]) music, her strange outfits, her unique music videos, her acting in the TearJerker ''Film/DancerInTheDark'', her cool accent, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick her habit of beating up paparazzi]]. From 1986 to 1992, she was in the alternative rock band called The Sugarcubes, who were the first Icelandic musical act to ''ever'' gain ''any'' sort of success outside of Iceland (mostly in the [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} UK]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates American]] alternative radio), mostly from the endorsement of beloved Radio 1 DJ/indie tastemaker Creator/JohnPeel. After they broke up, Björk went on to have a more successful, arguably better solo career.

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: ''Vespertine'' effectively marries classical music with IDM/Glitch and ''Medúlla'' is essentially a capella electronica. Its most notable track is "Triumph of a Heart", an a capella ''dance song''. And [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome it is awesome.]]

* KryptoniteFactor: Not so much her, but her music: as mentioned above, nearly all of Björk's music is guitarless. One must think her music sheets fear the guitar....

** ''Music/{{Debut}}'' was a departure from her work with The Sugarcubes with its electronica-based sound.
