Thank you for this I’m disgusted she did this. She’s ridiculous and keeps stealing things. Untalented. Makes me angry. Disrespectful!!!

Odd... There was this quote from an article:
"If we look at my career as an entirety, there's always that kind of punk rock provocateur". Dubious even after correcting for grammar. It has since been changed to: “If we seek for at my occupation as an entirety, there’s repeatedly that more or less punk rock provocateur." Why bother?
The whole article reads like a Google translate job.


As a millennial twit although not a revisionist one, I might add - I wholeheartedly agree with you! It does my head in when banal cretins, like Mylie Cyrus, totally rip of the aesthetic of an awesome band, like the Plasmatics and attach it to total tripe.


it's clearly an homage, yall never get tired of gatekeeping

No one is denying it's homage, but it's a superficial homage. Want to genuinely pay tribute? Then cover "Masterplan," "Fast Food Service" or "Lunacy" instead of Blondie's "Heart of Glass."


Miley has been paying hommage to a lot of rock legends on her album. She doesn't hide about paying tribute to the Plasmatic, she even wore one of their shirt on her last interview. It's a tribute, nothing more. Moreover, it's a good way for a younger generation to know about them. As someone who's 20 and who's not american i've never heard about them before Miley references them in her album !

I am feeling a bit conflicted on this. I am a 90s punk fanboy who came to love the punk anti-establishment vibe via The Offspring. (Best selling punk album of all time) From there many other less mainstream bands. She's definitely ripping off Wendy o, but I had not run into The Plasmatics until I saw Miley rocking the shirt. Went out and bought 3 Plasmatic Wendy O RIP


I draw the line at the fact that her sound and the lady ten years of her artistry really just seems like modeling herself off of The Plasmatics. If it's about increasing exposure, why is it her voice sounds like Wendy? Why did I never really hear her talk about them? That doesn't mean she never referenced them. It is an indicator of frequency though. Awareness is something you cultivate. If you take away the references, it's intellectual property theft.


Gen Z will call it gatekeeping. Punk millennials will be reminded of the time Ramones shirts were worn by everyone and their mom. Boomers will stay mad.
