Poly Styrene (1957-2011), born Marianne Elliot Said, was a true fighter in life and in her battle with cancer. She passed away yesterday evening and it stands to be said that the punk rock world has certainly lost a true icon.

So much, in fact, that I live there atop the largest oil spill in U.S. history. No, I don't drink the water.
