Sleigh Bells and Ten Other Guy-Girl Rock Band Duos

Four guys used to be the prototypical make-up of a rock band. Trademarked by the Beatles, followed by the Who, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, U2, and a thousand others. Lately however, there have been a new number that dominates rock and roll and and addition of the "fairer" sex.

With greater and greater frequency, rock bands are duos made up solely of a man and woman. A prime example of this phenomenon lies in Brooklyn's Sleigh Bells. With these two coming to Culture Room November 2, now seems as good a time as any to explore ten great guy-girl duos.
