Heart is a rock band technically formed in {{Vancouver}}, Canada but with all its members originating from UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}, Washington - one of their founding members was dodging the draft, everybody else followed, and later they moved back to Seattle once the whole thing blew over. While previous incarnations date from around 1967, the band itself was led by Ann and Nancy Wilson, who have also remained [[FaceOfTheBand the only constant members of]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_(band)#Members the band's ever-changing lineups.]] ToMakeALongStoryShort: they first got famous in TheSeventies, largely by sounding exactly like Music/LedZeppelin, decreased in popularity by the middle of TheEighties but had a comeback in 1985, largely by moving away from Zeppelin-styled rock into {{Power Ballad}}s and reliance on synthesizers.

** This story lingers. To the extent that a music writer for the London Guardian could sneeringly say, in the early 2000's, that Heart's music remains ''unaccountably popular among lesbians''. Another innuendo published in the same paper was that an unfailing sign of a woman being lesbian is that she owns all Heart's albums plus concert bootlegs.

* [[UnPerson UnPersons]] Mike and Roger Fisher, after a very bitter and public fall-out with the Wilson sisters. Ann and Nancy at first did not want them anywhere near the band's induction into the rock And roll Hall of Fame, but grudgingly relented when told the award wasn't just to the Wilsons, it was to the whole of the band's classic line-up. Mike and Roger were allowed to play one song with the group to honour this[[note]]''Barracuda'', an anthem about unpleasant people in the music biz[[/note]], but were bundled quickly off stage after the contract was honoured, and replaced with anonymous sessions musicians, just to rub it in.

The Wilson sisters also played an important part in the UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} music scene through their ownership of the Bad Animals Studio, used by key {{Grunge}} bands such as Music/AliceInChains, Music/{{Nirvana}}, Music/PearlJam and Music/{{Soundgarden}} and others like NeilYoung, JohnnyCash and {{REM}}. Ann Wilson also contributed vocals to the Alice in Chains EP ''Sap'' and later appeared at one of their tribute concerts.

* OlderAndWiser: The Wilson sisters are largely responsible for cultivating the Seattle grunge scene by opening their studios to a few then-unknown bands: PearlJam, {{Soundgarden}}, and {{Music/Nirvana}}.

* BlackSheepHit: "These Dreams", the first of their two #1 hits in the US. Particularly since the lead vocal was sung by Nancy instead of Ann.



* OldShame: The group is not fond of their song "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You", with Ann stating stating, "Actually we had sworn off it because it kind of stood for everything we wanted to get away from. It was a song by "Mutt" Lange, who we liked, and it was originally written for Don Henley, but there was a lot of pressure on us to do the song at the time."

->''These dreams go on when I close my eyes\\
Every second of the night I live another life\\
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside\\
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away...''

* CanadaEh: the time spent in exile in Vancouver rubbed off on the music. Many people mistakenly believe the girls and by extention the band ''are'' Canadian by birth and upbringing.
