"I'm the wild one, yes, I'm the wild one.
Well, it ain't no use, turn me loose, more, more
I can't keep score!"
— "The Wild One"

I'm a red-hot fox, I can take the tropes...:

  • Auto Erotica: "Daytona Demon" fits this trope somewhat. The song is about the narrator comparing her lover's lovemaking to a racecar:
    "Ride me, ride you
    We do anything we wanna do
    Speed you, speed me, you're my machine
    Daytona demon, Daytona demon"
  • Glam Rock: The most prominent woman in the genre.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: One of the first women rockers to embrace it. Her character on Happy Days was named Leather Tuscadero.
  • Female Rockers Play Bass: Trope Namer of an old version of the page, and one of the Trope Codifiers. One of the best-known bassists and female musicians of the era, she was usually the only female musician in her bands, and very much the lead.
  • "I Am" Song: "The Wild One".
  • The Lad-ette
  • Lead Bassist: Suzi plays bass and sings.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Not in the athletic sense, but she's five-foot-nothing and has a mighty vocal.
  • Rock Me, Asmodeus!: "Devil Gate Drive", "Daytona Demon".
