What musician, album, or song best describes what working at Steampunk means to you?

Lady Gaga’s second album, Born This Way, shattered not only industry records but connected with listeners with its progressive message and perception-altering music videos. Lady Gaga has since played by her own rules and pushed the conventions of what a successful musician should be, whether rocking a meat dress or 16-inch heels, taking on challenging social issues such as gay rights, or expanding into the world of acting and winning an Academy Award on her first nomination. She truly Thrives Being Uncomfortable and continues to inspire musicians worldwide.
