8. The Goonies
An '80s cover band (they seem very popular right now), this Boulder-based band is led by the inimitable Axxxly, or Ashley, described on the website as, “like a honey badger. Dangerous by day, but even more dangerous by night. This spastic cherry bomb is either robbing banks overseas or jumping her dirtbike over rows of flaming school buses.” This is definitely the first time we’ve ever heard the phrase “spastic cherry bomb" — and that may have made a better band name. These guys can rock out the hair metal (Guns N' Roses, Skid Row) or cool it with synthy '80s pop (Depeche Mode, Simple Minds).
