L7 is one of the most prominent all-female punk bands, first emerging onto the music scene in the 1980s. The group then began releasing music, gaining massive popularity in 1992 with the hit song “Pretend We’re Dead.” A track from the group’s third album, Bricks Are Heavy, the song helped establish L7 as one of the more powerful punk groups of the time. The band broke up in 2001, seemingly done for good, but reformed in 2014 in order to continue making new music. The band’s first new album in 20 years, Scatter The Rats, was originally supposed to be released at the end of February, but recently was pushed back to May 3rd. At the Marvel event, the group performed the most recent single from the album, “Burn Baby,” along with a few of their other hits from over the years.
