Juliette and the Licks
She's played quite a few high-energy freaks for Hollywood, but none of her silver screen characters can prepare audiences for the over the top ferociousness Juliette Lewis unleashes when she fronts her band, Juliette and the Licks. Audiences first got to hear the Van Halen-meets-Iggy Pop sound of the Licks, and the songs Lewis had been writing with hit songwriter Linda Perry, at Johnny Depp's club, the Viper Room, in 2003. With her pastel-punk outfits and full-throated vocal abandon, she and her band became live legends beyond the novelty of her actress past. Multiple albums have confirmed the singer's seriousness to the musical cause.
