Patricia Lee "Patti" Smith (December 30, 1946-) is an American singer-songwriter and published poet who helped form a foundation for the American version of PunkRock with her ambitious 1975 album ''Music/{{Horses}}''. This distinction has to be made here, as on a tour to Britain in 1976, what might otherwise have been a [[DreamTeam fruitful collaboration]] was scuppered by [[Music/JohnLydon Johnny Rotten]] of the Music/SexPistols' sneering on-stage reference to ''[[NoTrueScotsman Horses, horses, fucking horses!]]'' It had been envisaged that the British and American versions of Punk be brought together with Patti fronting the Pistols in a few covers, but Rotten's clear disdain for what he saw as pretentious twaddle, combined with Smith's reciprocal criticism of the Pistols' lack of basic musical talent, killed that nice sentiment and entrenched the separation between the two schools of Punk.

* OneOfUs: Her work has always been heavily influenced by her favourite writers and musicians ranging from {{Romanticism}} to Creator/TheBeatGeneration to PunkRock, but she also wrote a FilkSong based on ''Literature/TheHungerGames''. In ''M Train'', she spends several chapters gushing about various crime shows (and ''Series/DoctorWho''), and even briefly outlines a ''Series/TheKilling'' fanfic she'd like to write.

She has many popular songs, including but not limited to "Because the Night," "Dancing Barefoot," "Gloria," "Redondo Beach," and "Free Money." In 2010, she won the National Book Award for her latest book, a memoir entitled ''Just Kids''. "Dancing Barefoot" was covered by Music/{{U2}} and appeared as the [[{{BSide}} B-Side]] to "When Love Comes to Town", gaining almost as much radio airplay as the A-side.

** "Because the Night" is a bizarrely complicated form: the song was originally written by Music/BruceSpringsteen, but Bruce gladly let Patti record a version first (with her own modifications). He subsequently released his own version, leading some to think of ''that'' as the cover. More recent versions by both artists mix-and-match between Bruce's original lyrics and Patti's additions, and both are usually credited as co-authors. This is just what happens when two great songwriters are good friends, one supposes...

* AmericansHaveWackyNames: in the song ''Citizen Ship'', about immigrants arriving in New York, Patti's spoken, or rather rudely shouted, interlude involves turning to the other band members and Americanising the more difficult to spell Slavonic names.
