Nothing against Heart, & certainly nothing against the listmember who suggested them, but I think you *can* in good conscience exclude them. 

Take a look at the description of this place -- "Women in Punk/Post-Punk/Underground Music." What word in that quote, other than "women," applies to the Wilson sisters? None, I'd say. That happens *not* to be the case with Patti Smith or Deborah Harry. 

Just my opinion, of course.

Dan non-Seltzer

 So, I guess if Patti Smith and Blondie are being included I can't in good conscience exclude Heart, can I?
