Unlike the idiot who wrote the article claims, omitting The Slits is not an act of erasing this band from pop music history, but merely a consequence of inconsequential bands not standing the test of time. Using popularity as a yardstick for significance is not always a good idea, but when the subject is popular music, it doesn't seem all that unsuitable. Thus, it is perfectly plausible that a text highlighting a small number of significant bands does not mention a chick band that happened to jump on the punk bandwagon when it had been well underway, and that never reached a level of success that was even remotely close to the bands that were mentioned. Note that The Sex Pistol were the first "punk" band, a movement that had an enormous influence on music history. Of course, the members of The Slits had cunts, so apparently that's even better.
Dear feminists, cultural Marxists, and leftist morons in general: do we "eradicate female bands" out of history because we are stuck up whiteys who are insecure and need to protect our little boy's club, or is it maybe because women have a hard time competing with men in the field of music? On a related note, Schopenhauer used women's lack of achievement in music as the clearest example for the lack of ambition or talent (or did he even use the triggering term "intelligence"?) of women since they clearly weren't held back in that regard, neither by society --- upper class daughters were actively encouraged, which is still the case --- nor by physical limitations.
