BREAKING: “The Muffs” Singer and Guitarist Dies

Kim Shattuck, co-founder, singer, and guitarist for the punk rock band “The Muffs” has reportedly died at the age of 56.

Shattuck reportedly died Wednesday morning after a two year battle with ALS. She began her musical career with the “Pandoras” before they dissolved in 1990, which prompted her to form the “Muffs.” The group is perhaps best known for their rendition of Kim Wilde’s 1981 hit “Kids in America” for the 1995 film “Clueless, and released their breakout album “Blonder and Blonder that same year.

She later worked as a guest vocalist for many other punk acts, joining “NOFX” in their song, “Lori Meyers,” the “Dollyrots” in their track “Some Girls,” and “Bowling For Soup’s” 2009 song, “I’ll Always Remember You (That Way).”
