403. Coven

Perhaps best described as Jefferson Airplane from Hell, the Chicago based band took Psychedelic music and infused with Harder Rock and every satanic and Wiccan image they could think of. Fronted by the siren, Jinx Dawson, Coven became an embodiment of the early look of Heavy Metal (though they did not always sound like it) with their horned finger salute and embracement of all the dark elements of society. The great irony is that this band’s best known hit was when Dawson sang “One Tin Soldier” (credited to Coven) from the Billy Jack Soundtrack, but if that was your only exposure to Coven, then you really haven’t heard them.
