The Bangles

The Bangles are an American all-female pop rock band that originated in the early 1980s, scoring several hit singles during the decade. The band's hits include "Walk Like an Egyptian", Billboard magazine's number 1 single of 1987, as well as "Manic Monday", "Hazy Shade of Winter", and their 1989 number-one single "Eternal Flame".


Originally called The Bangs, they had to change it because another band had that name. They added the last letters because it sounded like "Beatles."
Their first manager was Miles Copeland, who managed The Go-Gos and The Police. He is the brother of Stewart Copeland from The Police.
Michael Steele, despite having a boy's name, is a girl. She was in The Runaways with Joan Jett and Lita Ford.
The band was formed in Santa Barbara, California by Vicki and Debbi Peterson, who are sisters.
All members sing and help write the songs.
Hoffs starred in the movie The Allnighter in 1987.
Hoffs married director Jay Roach in 1993. The Bangles got back together to write a song for Austin Powers 2, The Spy Who Shagged Me, which Roach directed.
Hoffs sang with Randy Newman at the 2001 Oscars. They performed Newman's "A Fool In Love" from the movie Meet The Parents. Hoffs got the gig because her husband directed the movie.
