Barbie and the Rockers

Jem and the Holograms already had to worry about the Misfits, and then came along these glammed-out girl rockers gunning for their hard-won, imaginary doll-band dominance.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
