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

P!nk’s career took off in 2000 with her debut album,Can’t Take Me Home.  This unique sound came out during a time princess pop reigned supreme.  Her raspy pop rock sound was so distinctive that it drove her in to the hearts of millions.  In the sea of sameness, she projected herself as a woman who would create her own path even when the world told her no.  Who she is, what she stands for, and how she’s forged her path, is who I see within the eyes of our Steampunk women.
