Additional notes
Wendy O. Williams committed suicide on April 6th 1998 and died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She had reportedly been despondent for some time.

Between 1984 and 1986 Wendy O. Williams had to release albums and singles (including most of The Plasmatics members) under her own name (or WOW) because of licensing difficulties with the name The Plasmatics.

After some years she could release the "Maggots" LP under the name "Wendy O. Williams & Plasmatics."

She also appeared as an actress in the motion picture "Reform School Girls". The Soundtrack (1986 / Rhino Records) for this B-movie includes four Plasmatics/WOW Songs:
* "Reform School Girls"
* "Bad Girls"
* "Goin Wild"
* "It's My Life"

The single that features Lemmy is not a official Plasmatics release but is often listed in their discography.
