Women Who Rock: The Donnas

The Donnas are an American all-female rock band from Palo Alto, California.  They consist of Brett Anderson (lead vocals), Allison Robertson (guitar, backing vocals), Maya Ford (bass, backing vocals) and drummer/percussionist Amy Cesari (Cesari replaced Torry Castellano, who left in 2009 due to tendonitis). They draw inspiration from Ramones, The Runaways, AC/DC, Bachman–Turner Overdrive and Kiss.  After gathering a cult following in the punk scene since their 1993 debut, the band achieved major label commercial success in the early 2000s and afterward as their music mixed punk, metal and classic rock sounds.  To date, the band’s last show was in Sioux City, Iowa on June 15, 2012.
