Plasmatics were an American Punk Rock and Heavy Metal band formed by Rod Swenson and Wendy O. Williams in New York City, New York, in 1977. The band was a controversial group known for chaotic, destructive live shows and controversial theatrics. These included chainsawing guitars, blowing up speaker cabinets, sledgehammering television sets, and blowing up automobiles live on stage.
