Punk revivalists the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs formed in Los Angeles in 1995, the group -- singer/guitarist Frank Meyer, guitarist Art Jackson, bassist Dino Everett and drummer Mike Sessa -- taking their cues from the protean noise of bands like the Stooges (from whose "Search and Destroy" they also copped their name) and the MC5. Renowned for their ferocious live shows, the quartet issued their debut album Heart Full of Napalm on Alive in 1996, returning a year later with Overdrive; later in 1997, the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs also backed singer Denis Tek on new renditions of his Radio Birdman-era classics "Do the Pop" and "More Fun." The next year, they repeated the trick, this time collaborating with singer Cherie Currie on a re-recording of her Runaways perennial "Cherry Bomb." Live on KXLU followed in 1999; that fall, the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs backed ex-MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer on tour. Waiting for the Death of My Generation followed in 2001. ~ Jason Ankeny
