Gender and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Write a 700-750 word response essay. Address specific arguments from Powers’ essay, such as:
what are the effects of canonization, how does this new list address or reinforce the standard canon, do you
agree with her assessment, and are “best of” lists useful? How does the 2018 list of the best 200 songs by
twenty-first century women and non-binary artists compare to your understanding of current pop/rock? How
does Powers’ comments in the radio interview compare to her essay from the previous year? How does this
essay fit with our class discussions, like that about “taste”?
