Chosen by: Honor Titus, Cerebral Ballzy

Oh man, Stiv Bators is probably the biggest influence on Cerebral Ballzy. His Dead Boys stage antics totally ripped off Iggy, but who givesa fuck? Cutting himself and getting blowjobs onstage and the sheer, earnest straightforward rebellion. Watch the vid of ‘Ain’t It Fun’ and you’ll see what I mean. He’s just such a stylishly badass songwriter, and his style? Second only to Richard Hell.
