The Plasmatics, 'Just Like On TV'

The Plasmatics were an American punk band formed by Yale University art school graduate Rod Swenson with Wendy O. Williams. Formed during the 70s punk scene in New York City, the band was a controversial group known for wild live shows that broke countless taboos. In addition to chainsawing guitars, blowing up speaker cabinets and sledgehammering television sets, Williams and the Plasmatics blew up automobiles live on stage. The band released five studio albums before breaking up in 1983.
