Margaret Cho Gives Us the Top Five Macho Bands That Lesbians Are Secretly Into.
1. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
The ultimate macho band that lesbians love--and my favorite--are Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It comes down to the song "Here Comes My Girl" because it's the ultimate lesbian love song. I've always found a way to dedicate this song on the radio to every girl I have been with or sung it to her. All Tom Petty songs are great, but this song is just the thing that goes through my mind when I see a woman I love. It's the song I'm going to sing and feel, and then cry to when it's over.
OC Weekly: Wow. I can tell you put a lot of thought into this list! You rule!
Margaret Cho: Thank you! I also have some honorable mentions because I was having trouble trying to really narrow it down. I don't have a lot of reasoning behind it but Counting Crows for super obvious reasons, 38 Special, ELO, Garth Brooks, Metallica, Dinosaur Jr., Korn, and The Darkness because we do have a sense of humor. Jeff Buckley too because I think we really want to be him and he's the one man we would consider going to bed with. Also Jack White but that's because of Meg White and also the lead singer of The Dead Weather Alison Mosshart.
So that's kind of deflected because it's like Jack White but really it's Meg White but really, it's Alison Mosshart. Oh and one more, the Foo Fighters! All of their lyrics have really chick-like emotions but it's like hard rock. I like to call it "Virgo Core." They also sound very clean like their studio would be very neat and clean. I've also been to their studio and it's true. It's very neat and organized. Their sound is clean like as in it isn't muddy or distorted like Dinasour Jr. I visualize their studio like it's a god damn mess. With the Foo Fighters you just know that everything is labeled and in the right place and all of the cords are perfectly wound clockwise.
