* GranolaGirl: Chrissie is vegetarian (she even owns a vegan restaurant in Akron, OH) and supports animal rights. It was her love of animal rights that caused her to allow RushLimbaugh to continue using "My City Was Gone" after initially balking at it; she donates the licence fees to PETA (who Rush sided with against the EPA on animal testing).

Pretenders is a British-American Music/NewWave band formed in 1978, and whose most famous lineup is made up of vocalist Chrissie Hynde, James Honeyman-Scott on guitar, Pete Farndon on bass and Martin Chambers on drums. Their first SelfTitledAlbum, from 1979, is often considered one of the foundation bricks of AlternativeRock as we know it.
