YMMV / Stevie Nicks

  • Critical Dissonance: During the Eighties, the time of her biggest popularity, Stevie didn't get a lot of love from major-media rock critics, most of whom, by some odd coincidence, happened to be big fanboys of Lindsey Buckingham. Rolling Stone was particularly notable (or egregious) in this regard; it took decades for that magazine to give her a really good review of any of her albums. In the last decade or so, however, critics have started giving her work a much better reception; this may be partly due to the number of younger artists who've cited her as an influence or inspiration.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: of her solo work, the epic rock song "Edge of Seventeen".
  • Epic Riff: "Edge of Seventeen".
  • Face of the Band: She's the best-known member of Fleetwood Mac.
  • First Installment Wins: Her solo debut, Bella Donna, is her most popular album.
  • LGBT Fanbase: She inspired a drag queen event called "Night of 1,000 Stevies."
  • Sampled Up: The riff from "Edge of Seventeen" was sampled for Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious". In reference to this, she made a cameo in the video for the song.
  • Signature Song: "Rhiannon", "Edge of Seventeen", "Dreams", "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You", "Landslide", "Stand Back".
    • "Stand Back" is particularly notable as it is the only song from her solo career that she has ever performed with Fleetwood Mac.
