Siouxsie Sioux in 1976, the year she formed Siouxsie And The Banshees. In a recent interview with 'The Independent' she said: "I've never particularly said I'm hetero or I'm a lesbian. I know there are people who are definitely one way, but not really me. I suppose if I am attracted to men then they usually have more feminine qualities." Pic: Rex Features

In 1985, four women formed the Parents Music Resource Centre, to monitor and censor lyrics that focus on violence, drugs, sex or all three. In 1993 at Lollapalooza, Rage Against The Machine stood naked with the acronym PMRC taped across their chests soundtracked by 15 minutes of feedback from their guitars in protest. By way of apology, they later got dressed and played a free show to disappointed fans.
