Kim Shattuck
Singer, songwriter, punk chick.
July 17, 1963 – October 2, 2019.
Aged 56 years.

Most recognized for: She was the singer/guitar player for the 1990’s punk trio The Muffs. Her sassy rasp frequently made guest vocal appearances on other punkers’ tracks, including NOFX & Bowling for Soup. But when the 90’s ended, so did most of her genre’s retro-college novelty. She subbed for the absent Kim Deal on a 2013 Pixies tour, but then quietly – under a rock somewhere – she succumbed to ALS .
