Rock Musician. She was a founding member, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of the punk band "The Muffs". Shattuck and fellow bandmate and longtime collaborator Melanie Vammen, were members of the Pandoras in the 1980s. In 1991, they started the Muffs and released their first singles “Guilty” and “New Love” that same year, followed by “I Need You” in 1992. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1993 on Warner Bros. Records. In 1995, they scored a hit with their cover of Kim Wilde’s “Kids in America” which appeared on that year's 'Clueless' soundtrack. The band would go on to release four studio albums: 1995’s "Blonder and Blonder," 1997’s "Happy Birthday to Me," 1999’s "Alert Today Alive Tomorrow," and 2004’s "Really Really Happy." After the group went on hiatus, Shattuck collaborated with other musicians and bands over the years, including NOFX, the Dollyrots, and more. She was briefly a touring member of the Pixies following Kim Deal’s departure from the band. The Muffs returned for various live performances before releasing 2014’s "Whoop Dee Doo." In early 2019, Shattuck and Vammen’s new band the Coolies, released the "Uh Oh! It’s...The Coolies" EP, with all of the proceeds going to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Shattuck died after a two year battle with the disease.
