If you aren’t familiar with Exile in Guyville, become intimately acquainted with that album, like, right this minute. No, go ahead, I’ll wait for you to understand why many hipster chicks to this day owe a debt of gratitude to one of rock music’s greatest female voices – and one of the best albums of the alternative rock generation.

Add to that her signature tousled bedhead and signature black eyeliner and lashes, and you’ve got a look that was hot then and is even hotter now.
