I’m rarely shaken to the core by news that a musician I don’t really know has died. But this one really took the wind out of my sails. Kim Shattuck’s singing brought me so much joy, I even wrote a song about the joy her music gave me in the saddest situations. Truly awful news. pic.twitter.com/ZYeSFEXCwS

Heartbroken about Kim. One of the all time greats. How could anyone be such a brilliant pop songwriter, singer, screamer, and such a total punk-rock badass, and be so insanely cute at the same time? No one funnier or cooler. We love you, Kim ????????????#kimshattuck #RIPKimShattuck pic.twitter.com/rD8fsARpV7

Kim Shattuck Career
Shattuck and Vammen were members of the Pandoras in the 1980s. In 1991, they started the punk band the Muffs and released their first singles “Guilty” and “New Love” that same year. A 1992 single on Sub Pop, “I Need You,” followed in 1992, and their self-titled debut album was released in 1993 via Warner Bros. Records. Their cover of Kim Wilde’s “Kids in America” famously appeared on the Clueless soundtrack in 1995. Earlier this year, Shattuck and Vammen’s new band the Coolies released the Uh Oh! It’s…The Coolies EP. All of the proceeds for the EP went to ALS research, and the band made the announcement without Shattuck revealing that she had been suffering from ALS herself. “Sadly, it runs in my damn family, and that disease is a mystery to just about every scientist,” Shattuck said in an interview with Vents Magazine. “We are definitely interested in finding a cure for ALS! Cure it already!”
Absolutely gutted to hear that Kim Shattuck has passed after a battle with ALS. Immensely talented, inspirational, ferocious and sweet whether with the Pandoras, Muffs, Pixies or Coolies. An absolute icon. pic.twitter.com/Reu9QuAJ6S
