Though the last name may not be as famous as the four fellows, the chances are you know her voice, from Monster Mash, Rockin' Robbin, or Da Doo Ron Ron.

Cruisin' In My Big, Mean Riot Machine

For Inquisitive Pussies And Riot Grrrls Everywhere: Help is at hand if you're essentially a coward but curious about the world anyway.

Even if you suspect, as I do, that some of those travel reports are wildly exaggerated. Go to all those no-go areas already! Imagine the nightclubbin' opportunities! Just watch out for competitive bidding from Phil Spector.
