Biography

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Patti Smith helped pioneer punk music and inspired generations of rebels, from Eighties gutter punk to the Nineties "riot grrrls. " As a singer, songwriter, and spoken word poet, Smith revolutionized the music industry with her landmark album Horses (1975), while her fiery stage performances helped put historic New York nightclub CBGB on the map. Smith courted controversy with her music, such as adding the line "Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine" in the song "Gloria" (1975), and provided the punk genre with its love anthem, "Because the Night" (1978). Throughout her career, she championed androgyny, empowered women, and was a staunch political activist, yet it was the powerful conviction in her voice and music that made Smith a true rock icon.
