'''Skunk Anansie''' are a British AlternativeRock band formed in 1994. Their heyday was from 1994 to 2001 before they broke up. They reunited in 2009 with a lower profile. They attracted a lot of press at the time for having a singer who was black, female, bald and openly lesbian with a black bass player and white drummer and guitarist in contrast to the normal "four straight white guys" profile of 90s alternative rock bands. Skin, the outspoken lead vocalist often tackled racism and homophobia in both their songs and concerts.
