With their tight skirts, skyscraper high beehives and thick, black kohl eyeliner reminiscent of Egyptian queens, The Ronettes claimed the title of the first "Bad Girls of Rock & Roll" in the 60s. While other girl groups of that era came across as singing about their crushes to their friends, The Ronettes sung directly to them in such hits as the infamous "Be My Baby" and "Baby, I Love You", driving the fellas wild!
